Happy Birthday Shakespeare!

The study of Shakespeare’s life is full of assumptions, best guesses, and wild conjecture. Was he a secret Catholic spy? A nobleman hiding his identity? Sir Francis Bacon? Or the son of a minor civil servant and glove maker?

The first of many mysteries of Shakespeare’s life, the date of his birth is unknown, but we celebrate it, today, April 23rd, 3 days before the recorded baptism of a William Shakespeare in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

So, today in honor of the birth of the greatest author in the English language, we have a handful of posts today that celebrate Shakespeare.
