Subject: RE: shakespeare
Shakespeare & his contemporaries brought virtually all walks of life together to listen to stories about their society & what made them human beings, in buildings of largely vernacular architecture; they also taught us our language to a large extent. What could be more 'folksy' than that? Come to the Globe in London for a performance if you don't believe me - you'll be part of the play itself, and part of a communal experience. Don't listen to the modern soundbites - Sh. was neither truly populist or elitist, he told stories for everyone.
