What do you like about this subject?

Shakespeare is the author/poet/playwright that has most accurately portrayed what I believe to be the human condition.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

A continuing reduction of the space between the bard and myself.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

There is more than enough information to confidently conclude that Shakespeare was in fact Shakespeare. Read Bill Bryson's SHAKESPEARE, or watch the 4 part series, IN SEARCH OF SHAKESPEARE. Also, know this, according to Bill Bryson's book, Shakespeare performed for King James 187 times!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Whether it was a single man or woman, a collection of men or women, or something else entirely, is irrelevant; the only thing that matters is whomever or whatever wrote the works that we attribute to the name William Shakespeare was in touch with the human condition.
