If you’ve read my post about the Globe Theatre, then you already know that Shakespeare is my homeboy and I need the world to know it. To thine own self be true, right? Accordingly, I had a grand old time visiting Stratford Upon Avon.
Let’s just be real here for a second: I took like 8 million pictures of random buildings where Shakespeare supposedly stepped foot at one point or another. So for the sake of this post not being ridiculous, I’m just going to limit myself to posting the two most important.
Now, if you’re really astute, you’ll notice that Shakespeare was born and died on the same day. This is controversial because historians don’t actually know for certain, but I choose to believe it because it’s poetic and Shakespeare deserves that. You know, the wheel is come full circle.
In fact, the authenticity of Shakespeare’s authorship is controversial because so little is known about him. Again, I choose to believe he existed because no legacy is so rich as honesty.
And finally, here’s a picture of me and my girl, Lady Macbeth. AKA my favorite fictional female. What a boss.
Stratford Upon Avon: highly recommend it for any Shakespeare lovers out there. Also, I threw some Shakespeare quotes in this post from Hamlet, King Lear, and All’s Well That Ends Well. Comment if you found them all!
