I just finished watching "In Search Of Shakespeare" by Michael Wood on Netflix and highly recommend it to anyone interested in the arts, their influence in history and our American Constitution. If we are to understand the world and ourselves, we have to understand history. Many of the topics Shakespeare wrote about are still in play and no one did it better than he. This narrative give his personal history along with the history of England and how the religious wars played out.
It's worth the time.
An Egyptian writer, Ptah Hotep, put patriarchal beliefs as clearly as
anyone in the early civilizations: "If you are a man of note, found for
yourself a household, and love your wife at home, as it beseems. Fill her
belly, clothe her back. . . . But hold her back from getting the mastery.
Remember that her eye is her stormwind, and her vulva and mouth are her
I agree. There are a lot of wonderful documentaries to watch on netflix. If you watch this let me know what you think ok? I was fascinated with the history of elizabethan england and the authoritarian government they struggled under. Religion...and all that went with it.
