We took a tour of Shakespeare's birthplace and learned about how he grew up. His father was a glove maker. Not much is known about Shakespeare's early years. Historians tried to piece together and recreate his life, but Shakespeare still seems to be a mystery to history.
We took a tour of the Shakespeare Library. It also served as an archive of records for the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). On display, the librarian showed us a collection of rare books pertaining to Shakespeare and his plays.
RSC PLAY: "AS YOU LIKE IT"
This was by far the best performance of Shakespeare I have witnessed. I think I am now old enough to actually understand everything. Well, the play has so much to it that one cannot comprehend everything in one reading, but I understood enough to follow it and enjoy it.
