Marking the 450th Anniversary of William Shakespeare’s Birth

For more photos from the sites of William’s Shakespeare life, explore the Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Globe Theater and Shakespeare’s Grave location pages.

Every year at the end of April, a celebration of the life and works of the great playwright William Shakespeare takes place in the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Shakespeare was born there in 1564 and cultural celebrations in Stratford’s streets, with entertainers, street performers and traditional Morris dancers, go back hundreds of years.

From his plays to his sonnets, Shakespeare’s extensive works have produced a legacy of characters, ideas, histories and, of course, words—it is thought he contributed more than 2,000 to the English language. His plays are a staple on many school curriculums, and continue to be reinterpreted on stage, rewritten in fiction and retold on screen.

The man himself is still very much a mystery and few details exist about his private life. Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway with whom he bore three children, before relocating to London to pursue his acting and writing career. He died at the age of 52 on April 23, 1616—a date which fell very near to his birthday in the same month (the exact date is unknown).

This year marks the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth and, on Saturday, a special procession will take place in Stratford, ending with celebrants laying flowers on Shakespeare’s grave in the Holy Trinity Church. The world-renowned Royal Shakespeare Company will also host a full program of shows.

I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted

He’s so frustrated cause he KNOWS she’s flirting. He KNOWS it, and it’s with her MAGIC—THE REASON WHY HE CAN’T EVER KISS HER OR GET CLOSE TO HER.

And he has to check himself every time because he also can’t get too physically close to her because what if she tries to kiss him. I mean what would have happened if she tried to sit next to him?

And she’s finally, finally in a place where she’s happy, she’s embracing his magic and she’s actively trying to get his attention. If not for the curse he would be snarking right back at her with the raised eyebrows and that smirk.

They’ve essentially switched roles. He’s now the insular one, trying to deny himself and keep Emma away and she’s the one who’s coming on to him, joking with him, trying to get him to lighten up.

My heaven for a lust curse that has Emma trying to jump his bones and Hook having to distance them and getting all frustrated and whatnot.
