Bonnie Shaljean BS: shakespeare (154* d) RE: BS: shakespeare 19 Jan 19


Also remember the trouble Shakespeare's father got into for his Catholic leanings & sympathies, at a time when this drew harsh punishments; so his name was already tainted. And then there are those ten "missing years" in the known facts of his life - which I think Michael Wood has solved (his TV documentary In Search Of Shakespeare is excellent). Scholars still aren't sure whether WS himself was a "closet Papist" or not - which doesn't matter now, but sure as hell did then. He really had to tread carefully, AND make a living, with a family to support. You can't impose 21st-century liberal sensibilities on a Renaissance artist trying to survive under a very different social and political system.
