Julia Hughes - writing thrilling adventures - time after time after time.
Though in my view, today's an even more important anniversary than the old dragon slayer's day – Shakespeare's Birthday. No one has done more for – or with the English language, and for my tuppence worth, we owe him an even greater debt than our patron saint.
Although many young teenagers might disagree as they struggle to please their English Lit exam board! The older I get, the more I appreciate the man's outrageous talent. Most of us quote the Bard without even knowing we're doing it!
To emphasise the point, as this excellent post points out even the phrase "Household word" was coined by Shakespeare – "Shakespeare's quotes in common everyday use."
Happy birthday Will, may your plays continue to entertain and your words continue to intrigue for many more centuries.
