Thanks, but my own view is that an author cannot totally divorce his personality from the work, no matter how seperate the work is from his reality. Just my feeling though. Ian

Well, we can't be sure of course. But is seems to me that Shakespeare was Shakespeare. That's not to say, all of the works ascribed to him, were actually penned by the bard. I guess, the debate will continue for some time yet. I will check out the latest research. I would assume, dangerously that Shakespeare would have a good working knowledge of court, from connections and patrons. Elizabeth and

Woods researched Shakepeare for one of his ' In search of' series. His father's history seems pretty well documented, and it would appear William was a real enough person. Son of well to do Merchant. Check the BBC's web-site, it has a good search facility. Regards Ian

Well, yes, with Anthony Hopkins as Titus. Micheal Wood did a programme for the BBC, ' In search of Shakespeare'. He was real enough, his family history seems well documented. Cheers Ian

I was minded by my reply to the thread on Polictal MB, about power, to mention Macbeth. This gave me a little thought about Shakespeare, I'm sure we've all read some of his works, used a quote or two. I'm personally drawn to the tragic aspect of his plays. My favourites being: King Lear, MacBeth Hamlet Titus Andronichus Richard III Othello I have a sweet spot for a Midsummer's Night Dream t

Fair enough assesment of things that were. My site arose out of my own interest in ancient history. CSICOP, and the others , I don't believe I was aware of them at the time. Through my postings on the GHMB, I began to attract a number of people to me who were opposed to GH's ideas. I then had the idea to put up a website to promote counter-views, ie orthodox if you like. Over time, things got out

That's ok Don, maat formed after the split with me. Overnight, they took all the articles and when I logged on the next day, they were all gone, apart from Alex B's sphinx paper, so I had to start over again with original MB and site. Cheers Ian

I beg your pardon, get your facts right, Kat and the others split with me in 2001, and went on to form Maat. My mb kept running in it's own right, and is in fact still running. Ian

I think MacBeth had as much goodness and badness in him as with any human being. What happened to him, it seems to me is that once a belief had been planted in his mind, it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. As such it overode his social and ethical being. In order to achieve his ambitions, we see that recourse to murder was his only way to become King . Lady Macbeth, isn't she a strange women,

MacBeth, was basically a loyal retainer. But once the seeds of ambition had been sown, via the Wyrd Sisters, it became all consuming. The fateful meeting with the Sisters, perhaps a sop to King James's obsession with witchcraft, nevertheless serves to illustrate the power of suggestion. Regards Ian

You should study MacBeth, I believe it's the classic study of ambition running amok. Cheers Ian

I take you point; however this is something that goes right to the heart of Western culture. There are enough nuts in the USA to begin with, we don't need extra christian crazies. Ian

I do see this as a twofold thing. First we get foisted with Mel Gibson's christianity, ( with commercial bells on it) secondly, as pointed out it is blantantly anti-semitic. People are free in the West these days( hopefully ) to follow whatever creed this wish, this isn't my idea of spiritual views. Best Ian

The solar wind as you probably know, is a stream of electrically charged particles blasting out into the solar system and over the good planet Earth. We are, protected to a large extent from this lethal radiation by our magnetic field. This field tranfers energy from the solar wind around the earth and out poles. This the magnosphere. However, under certain circumstances, it doesn't operate as

I think Kevin, that your attitude is somewhat naive. We either have to take action now for prevention, or failing that, prepare for the worst case scenario..............Bush WAKE UP. Ian

Hi Will T, I am not doing much other than research. I hope to write everything up one day. Trouble is I am often pulled by so many interests, I never give one of them everything. I might just take up your bunkhouse offer. I am not in the prediction buisness, your right though Will, changes are afoot. best Ian

A secret report , supposedly from the Pentagon has warned that Britain could have a climate like Siberia by 2020. If the gulf stream was to be diverted, this is a certainty Experts predicate that millions around the world will die as temperature changes lead to water wars and famine/disease. Parts of Europe are set to sink as sea levels rise; America and other western countries will adopt a se
