The eminent Shakespeare Scholar, Martin Green, writes to me about The Shakespeare Code:
Everyone who writes about Shakespeare has the need to fill in, in some reasonable way, the great gaps in our knowledge of Shakespeare’s personal and professional life and reasonable surmises filling in the gaps are entitled to consideration so long as they are presented as surmises. But your interpretations of various passages in Shakespeare’s plays and poems struck me as being not surmises but, for the most part, extraordinarily acute insights…..I am very, very impressed.
(Martin Green is the author of The Labyrinth of the Sonnets and Wriothesley’s Roses)
Mr. Green’s name has been inscribed in The Shakespeare Code’s ROLL OF HONOUR.
If you are new to this blog, I would recommend starting with Shakespeare, Love and Religion, three talks I gave at the Grosvenor Chapel in Mayfair, London, W.1. They give a chronological overview of the life and work of Shakespeare.
