When we saw Essexgirl09’s comprehensive collection of Stratford-Upon-Avon Shakespeare sites a few weeks ago, we thought of it as an early birthday present. An early birthday present by proxy, anyway: William Shakespeare’s big day is this weekend, and celebrations--think parties, parades, and lots of cake--roll into Stratford.

Our celebration will be just as sweet; we’re marking the occasion by digging into Essexgirl09’s journal, Shakespeare’s Stratford, as well as other reviews from IgoUgo members who have visited Mary Arden’s; Shakespeare’s Birthplace; Anne Hathaway’s Cottage; Hall’s Croft; and Nash’s House.

A big thanks to Essexgirl09, who is quickly becoming IgoUgo’s bard of England, for gifting us a fitting way to toast the other bard’s birthday.

I heard it thru A grapevine that Shakespeare was the pen name of one FLORIO -
Could Shakespeare really have had Italian human elements...Wonder if any artists ever painted his portrait, would you know?
