Part 2 of the Anglophile Obsession, today is both the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death as well as his 452nd birthday. Many things are happening this weekend to celebrate the anniversary, including BBC’s lists for the Anniversary Programs.
Hopefully, unlike earlier this week, this will not get anyone angry or prevent anyone from celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Easter Uprising on Sunday. IMHO I believe you can celebrate both. 😉 Or as I believe Polonius might say:
“This above all: to thine own self be true
And it must follow, as the night the day
Thou canst not then be false to any man/Farewell, my blessing season this in thee!”
