Shakespeare, 400 Years -- April 23, 2016

Today is the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, on 23-April-1616. He wrote the plays. 

I had read some of the plays before, but I read his complete works one summer while in college. 

We had to memorize Richard III's opening monologue in high school.  I can still recite some of it.  

I played three parts in a high school production of As You Like It.  I can still remember some of my lines. 

Thank you, Master Shakespeare.
