Shakespeare Solved ®


Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Ralph Fiennes Shakespeare Photos


Today is Ralph Fiennes' birthday.

So, I thought I would find some photos of his Shakespeare performances over the years.

Most recently he was in the fantastic film adaptation of Coriolanus, and he was on stage as Prospero in The Tempest in 2011.

I do hope that he doesn't wait too long to return to Shakespeare.

If I am not mistaken, this is a picture of him as Romeo, in 1986:





From Much Ado About Nothing, 1988:







As Troilus, directed by Sam Mendes, 1990:
