Shakespeare was it is important to follow the verbal traces he left behind back into the life he lived and into the world to which he was so open And to understand how Shakespeare used his imagination to transform his life into his art it is important to use our own imagination There is no doubt he is an enigma a man who uite possibly has had the greatest influence on the English language and yet strangely enough left very little personal correspondence behind It does seem like a man so gifted with words would have left behind mounds of letters diaries and journals If they did exist they are long gone burned or buried or wrapped around a fish for a servant girl or used to make bindings for books It is interesting to think of a Shakespeare letter bound up in a book that is valued at a fraction of what his handwriting hidden in the binding would be worth It is as if Shakespeare erased himself leaving only his monumental plays behind He married young too young to a much older woman It was not a happy marriage from what we know Much has been made of him leaving her the second best bed in his will He had three children Susanna Hamnet and Judith The later two were twins Hamnet died

Marlowe s influence on Shakespeare was profound Marlowe was the only one of the university wits whose talent Shakespeare might have seriously envied whose aesthetic judgment he might have feared whose admiration he might have earnestly wanted to win and whose achievements he certainly attempted to eual and outdo I do wonder what would have happened if Marlowe had lived another ten to twenty years Would Shakespeare have become Shakespeare Would he have conceded the field to Marlowe Would the competition have made him an even better playwright I have to believe it was lucky for Shakespeare that Marlowe exited life at the tender age of 29 I certainly wouldn t like to take a chance with an alternative history Christopher MarloweRobert Greene a fellow scribbler called Shakespeare the upstart
