The Shakespeare Nobody Knows @ Kirkwood Library @ Kirkwood Library | Wilmington | Delaware | United States

While much is known about William Shakespeare, certain aspects of his personal life are less clear. He did not keep diaries or journals. We have no idea what he thought about the churches of England in the 16th and early 17th century. He must have loved his parents, his wife, children, and six siblings. Who knows? There are some very interesting things that we do know. Since the English are excellent record keepers, we know that he was baptized on April 26, 1564, therefore he was probably born on April 23rd. Oddly enough, he also died on April 23, 1616, on his 52nd birthday. These and many more little known facts are included in this lively talk. Hopefully, they will fascinate you as much as they have ”bardolators” for the last four hundred forty-six years.
