Happy 450th, William!

How incredible that Shakespeare celebrates his 450th Birthday this week.
Shakespeare has been a great source of inspiration to me throughout my life. His talent with language and words is almost untouchable.

It’s even impossible to name my favorite play: Macbeth, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing, Henry V, Twelfth Night, Julius Caesar, The Tempest. And then, of course, there is his sonnets.

To hear Shakespeare’s words spoken aloud is truly a magical thing. And so in honour of his birthday, I present one of my favorite pieces performed by my favorite Shakespearean actor, the marvelous Derek Jacobi.

Enjoy:

    Nice! What author does not beg her audience’s pardon, when crafting our own worlds of words? In this passage, I hear Bill’s gratitude for his forgiving and enthusiastic fan base. Holla!
