The Life of William Shakespeare
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
The Bard's Life
A few occupations that were available during the Elizabethan Era were; a Fletcher (made and sold arrows), an Apothecary (would give you drugs and medication), Barber Surgeon (dentist), and finally a Nurse in your household would take care of your children.
Masters and Servants.
A male servant was a groom and a female was a maid. The Steward is a person whom administers property, finances, they are employed to manage someones house, basically a butler.
City of London.
London was a very "grotesque" place during the Elizabethan Era, the streets were very narrow they were cobbled, and so covered in slime they became slippery, the city had very little drainage near the Fleet Ditch, so instead everything got dumped in the streets. The majority of the people in the city were drunk most of the time, they never drank water and they did not have any tea at this time.
Shakespeare the Playwright
"If music be the food of love, play on"
“This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man.”
“You may my Glories and my State depose, But not my Griefes; still I am King of those.”
"The Bubonic Plague"/ "Black Death"
Nor know I by voice or any feature:
I hate ingratitude more in a man
Than lying, vainness, babbling, drunkenness,
Or any taint of vice whose strong corruption
In habits our frail blood.
I believe that these lines mean, that the speaker is talking about someone specific whom they are not fond of. I believe that during the play someone will betray the speaker in a way he will not be able to forgive them. I have heard a bit of what twelfth night is about and I believe I could figure out the situation if what i heard is correct.
