Secret Marriage

Fotor013083454In the documentary, In Search of Shakespeare with Michael Wood, most viewers, including myself, learned a great deal about Shakespeare and his young life. Shakespeare actually had a pretty good childhood financially, his dad was a wealthy man and his family owned farmland, some cousins were popular, although he did bounce around from schools, he found a way to get educated. One key thing about his young life was by the age of eighteen he was married and not only that, he was married secretly. He married Anne Hathaway. This secret, quick marriage reminded me of a time in the play Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare, where Sebastian married Olivia just as secretive as Shakespeare did in his real life. I believe this secret message in Twelfth Night was inspired by Shakespeare’s own life.
