Shakespeare Week: 400th Death Anniversary of William Shakespeare

Death, death; oh, amiable, lovely death!
King John (1598), Act III, scene 4, line 34.

The 23rd of April marks the 400th death anniversary of our favourite bard, William Shakespeare. It’s the perfect time to get out your (lovingly) battered copies of Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, and Macbeth.

Do you remember your favourite collection of the bard’s poems, always on your nightstand? It’s time to delve right into it, and swoon to the beauty of Shakespeare’s words.
