Shakespeare Lives!

As you may know, it's almost 400 years since William Shakespeare died. He died on 23 April 1616. Curiously little is known about his private life. There's even speculation as to whether he was the true author of much of his work. But whatever the case, the works attributed to Shakespeare have had an enormous influence on our language.

So here's a site that will interest you: Shakespeare Lives, sponsored by the British Council. There's lots here. Start off with the video about Romeo and Juliet. And I liked the 'Shakespeare Lives in Photography' section.

Explore the site - and leave a comment about it on the Tag Board or in a comment. Remember, this Blog is interactive - you are welcome to leave a piece of yourself here.

More soonest,
