Very interesting study. I think I have read before about a double meaning for 'compounds strange' in sonnet 76.

I saw the first version of this story on CNN today, but it didn't have much information. This is the original, much better.


note: This is a very small .PDF

This is a far cry from evidence that Shakespeare smoked weed.

They found clay pipes with residue buried in the garden where he once lived.

If Shakespeare were around now, he might say, "That doth be the pipe of my cousin!"

Thanks, I appreciate the info! What was it Bill Hicks said about Artist of any sort and " inspiration ".... Alll those guys that made all your books and cd's and dvd's and records... RRRRRRREEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAALLLLL effin' high on drugs!

I'd appreciate a heads up that I'm not clicking a webpage link or video, but automatically downloading a pdf. Maybe Ats needs to adjust the way pdf links are displayed so we could know before we click the link.

Wouldn't surprise me - drugs have had a huge impact and played a huge role in creativity, enlightenment and religion.
Some of our greatest creations, writings, songs and ideas have come from and been realized because of drugs.

I'm already imagining Shakespeare watching Punch and Judy with a bowl of mutton in his lap, awaiting the robin hood marathon.

Reldra, Reldra get real. I live a stones throw from where he was SUPPOSED to live. No-body, and I mean no-body knows who Shakespeare was, where he lived , what he looked like or any thing. The only thing people have is stories wrote by some-one calling himself Shakespeare.
Yes, Stratford-on avon has some documents with the name Shakespeare and some of his books mention the area. But there is no evidence that any of the hype in Stratford is true, but Stratford has taken it and run with it.
It's exactly the same as Robin Hood and Nottingham.

Have you read the tempest and mid summer nights dream?

He was on something!

It would seem that he was under the influence of something.
I was just saying that they don't have proof positive in this recently discovered evidence.

Yes he was. If he was somebody at all, rabbit holes everywhere...

Added to my list again, it's been a while. Thanks for the tip!
