William Shakespeare reading on the street

Posted in Actors, Architecture, Dogs, English Literature, Historical articles, History, Literature, London, Shakespeare, Theatre on Saturday, 21 November 2015

This clever picture shows a snapshot of late-Elizabethan street life in London, with unruly children and crabby old men and fearsome looking dogs, and in the midst of this motley humanity stands the self-contained figure of Shakespeare reading a small and interesting book. The enchanting idea the image conveys is that countless ordinary people must have rubbed shoulders with the great man day after day.
