Shakespeare for Jo

This bust of Shakespeare, is in the very pretty garden of St Mary Aldernabbury Gardens, behind Guildhall. A request from Jo.
Enjoy.

Mo, thank you so much.
I can finally read it properly.
"So worthy a friend" indeed.

Isn't it a stroke of luck that they actually did this!

You know, I've been looking for this!!! LOL. Everytime I go there I look for the bust. Come to find out I've always been in the wrong garden!

I haven't seen this statue in many years! I'm also glad you are showing it to us.

A nice reminder of what this fine writer contributed to the polishing of the English language. We seem incapable of producing such sparkling words in our time.

I have to agree that I never read Shakespeare's works to the end.

Well all I can say is thank goodness for John Heminge and Henry Condell! I love watching Shakespeares plays - one should always see them first, then read them. We are so much the richer for them!
Thanks for a fascinating post.

I wonder if 'little Louis' (:-) realizes that Shakespeare coined something like 8000 (sic) new words and phrases, many of which we use today. That may make him praise Bill even more.
Homeric.
