A Shakespeare Celebration

Speaker: Lloyd King

In this presentation, we celebrate the exceptional poet, dramatist, actor, playwright, and incredible intellect of a man called Shakespeare. He was the first writer to create personality, character, and most of what we now think of as “human traits.” In addition to coining thousands of words in the English language, he also created the words and concepts that modern man still uses to define himself. Shakespeare is probably the greatest writer in English or any other language. Amazingly, he produced thirty-seven plays that are still performed on stages worldwide. Four hundred years has not diminished his acceptance in the cultures of the world. Let’s create an international holiday to celebrate his contributions to all humans—past and present!
