"With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come."
-Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice
On the 450th celebration of William Shakespeare's birthday, I am wishing that I'd had more time and opportunity to explore his life while in England. Beyond viewing the marker honoring him at Westminster Abbey and the view from the top of St. Paul's of his re-created Globe, this English major has not yet been able to explore Shakespeare the person in his own country. Maybe one day.
Side note, but if you're a Shakespeare fan, you should check out the American Shakespeare Center at the Blackfriar's Playhouse located in Staunton, Virginia. It's well worth it!
Are you a fan of Shakespeare? Have you been able to visit Stratford-Upon-Avon or other Shakespearean sites?
