Ever since William Caxton set his first printing presses rolling in the 15th Century, the demand for truly great writers has always exceeded supply. Nevertheless there are a select few who richly deserve this much coveted title, although no two people will ever agree on who the accolade should be awarded to because we all have our own particular favorites. Yet, William Shakespeare is a name that everyone knows, although sadly many of us will shudder at just its mention, remembering school days being force-fed iambic pentameter and rhyming couplets.
However, Shakespeare's magnificent dramatic works are as resonant today as when he wrote them, when Elizabeth I was on the throne of England and Sir Walter Raleigh was sailing around the world. So sit back, relax and enjoy this celebration of Shakespeare's inspirational works, while we go in search of the man behind the myth. There are no stiff, starched ruffs in this writer's tale as we go off in search of the wild, handsome, Warwickshire plough boy who ran away to London and changed the world.
