Shakespeare’s Secrets

In the Michael Wood documentary about William Shakespeare’s life, we learn many things never known about him. One thing that intrigued me was the the secrets he learnt to keep from a young age. Shakespeare might have been a secretive man while writing his sonnets and plays, but this all started ever since he was a young boy. His father, a middle-class man made gloves but kept it a secret as it was against the law. As Shakespeare grew older, he joined his father in helping him make gloves. This was the first of many secrets he learned to keep as he married Anne in secret as well because she was already pregnant. His secret keeping carried on as he never revealed much about his personal life to anyone, no matter if it was his plays, love life or money status.
