WILL SHAKESPEARE

April 23  1564  —  April 23  1616

Shakespeare 2

WILL
to his fellow players–
Mr. Shakespeare spelled his name
Several ways
And never studied the subject
ENGLISH
NO
In his 8 years of schooling
(Yes only 8)
He read Latin and Ancient Greek
Histories, Myths, Poetry, Plays
In their Original Languages
English was not studied
       It was the language of the people
Kind of like Darija today
Lucky Lucky Will
Free of constraints
English was in flux
Changing Fast
So
Will could
Play with words
Make new words
Coin vivid expressions

And oh

He might find it
Rich
To know he was actually
STUDIED
at Universities
When
After all
He was but a
“Poor Player who struts and frets
His HOUR upon the stage”
Because
You see
He didn’t write for books
HE WROTE FOR THE STAGE
He wrote parts for his friends
He wrote parts for himself

William Shakespeare

Wrote plays for those in fancy seats
And also
For those who had to stand —

The “groundlings”

               And
By Golly
This Actor
And his pals
Owned their own theatre
And who was his greatest fan?
Why Queen Elizabeth
Her Royal Self
And how did this Being
Of 16th Century England
This son of a glove maker
Come to know such extremes
Of Human Nature—
The depraved evil of an Iago
The hard earned wisdom of a King Lear
The appreciation of the “monster” Caliban
For “sounds and sweet airs that give delight”

And in Stratford

As a boy
How did he come to feel
So at home in nature
So ready to name all the
Flowers, herbs,

Each bit of greenery

That

He grew up with

Some miracle, was it ?

That gave us
A mirror
That
400 years later
Reflects our nature
Through indelible characters

In stories we can’t forget

Thanks WILL
For Being With Us
