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.
