Shakespeare was bisexual–get over it and be proud! It was a key to this depth of awareness and diversity of human nature. The breadth of his insight into complex characters is unmatched in world literature. From jesters to suicidal princes to farcical clowns to villainous kings his word tapestries are masterpieces woven by a genius.
I studied Shakespeare in my student years in Stratford-on-Avon, UK, and attended many of his plays’ performances at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford. It is a piece of my education that I remember with much pleasure and reverence. Sir Stanley Wells, mentioned in this news report, was one of my professor I am pleased to say.
