Sarah2 Shakespeare a doper ? (38) RE: Shakespeare a doper ? 06 Mar 01


I always find this "exposť" attitude of the press makes me think of Boswell's Life of Johnson. Boswell quotes Sir Joshua Reynolds as saying, after Johnson's death, "Now that the old lion is dead, every ass thinks he may kick at him."

They all seem to want to diminish greatness wherever they find it. If Shakespeare toked up a few, it wouldn't surprise me to find it was to rest his brain...
