My Year Of Shakespeare Shakepeare

My personal journey into the world of William Shakespeare

Name:
Location: Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States

I have always been aware that there was this dude named Shakespeare and that he influenced, well, everything. It seemed like a good time to read up on him and read what he wrote.

Uther fathered Arthur

I read a interesting bit that had an actor, who acted with Shakespeare, schedule a rendevous with an admirer who asked him to come dressed as Richard III. Shakespeare overheard this and arranged to arrive before his fellow actor, dressed as Richard III, and enjoyed the admirer ever so much. Now this got me to thinking how Uther, disguised as Gorlois, lay with Igraine and so came Arthur. You see, Merlin used his power to transform Uther to look like Igraine's husband Gorlois, the Duke of Cornwall, in return for the child that Uther and Igraine would have(Arthur). While Uther coupled with Igraine at Tintagel castle, her husband was killed in battle at another castle. Makes me wonder just how often people conceive children with someone other than whom they think they are conceiving them with? to be continued....if and when I discover more shenanigans afoot. :)

What about Hercules? Zeus transformed himself in Hercules's mother's husband while he was away getting killed in the war (although in the Roman comedy he doesn't get killed but comes back from war with hilarious consequences).

Too true. I was hoping to hear about, and be reminded about more of the same. Thanks. Keep 'em coming.
