Shakespeare, the Bard, who lived from 1564 to 1616, through the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I of England, was, arguably, the greatest European dramatist. You can find his complete works on the web, follow his life, and debate what he looked like.
Bloggers may be writing about modern performances, about the great controversy over whether Shakespeare really was the writer of "his" plays, or debate what he looked like. And the Bard now has his own personal newspaper.
He probably didn't say: "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely bloggers."
