Shakespeare’s Will

Extract from Shakespeare’s Will.

Yes, we are little biased… but for us, Shakespeare’s Will is one of his more fascinating works!

Signed in 1616, it follows the same basic constructs, and let’s face it – with a son-in-law struck out, and very specific bequests listed… the human instincts that we have still have today.   Shakespeare died a month after this will was written, having caught a fever at a ‘merry party’ thrown by fellow writer, Ben Jonson. He was buried in Stratford upon Avon church.
