About myShakespeare.me

I can no other answer make but thanks,
And thanks, and ever thanks 

myShakespeare.me is an avocation and a love — my retirement hobby. This tool helps me deepen my understanding and appreciation of William Shakespeare – his work, his life, and the period in which he lived. While this is myShakespeare.me, you are welcome to wander the website. If you have suggestions, corrections, complaints or questions, please send your thoughts through the Contact page.
