    Dado had suggested reading Bill Bryson's Shakespeare: the world as stage. It is really interesting in describing the horrible lives that people lived in that time period. The plague came and went regularly and theatre shut down along with so many other interactions in people's lives. Society suffered and survived. What a wake-up!
    Bryson really clarifies how little we know about Shakespeare himself. Good book!
    As Cicero said, “Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.”

    I think I'll try to get a copy of that book! I love Bill Bryson, but I never read his book about Shakespeare. Great writer/Shakespeare/history--how can I resist?
