London has had it's fill of Shakespeare in recent weeks. The World Shakespeare Festival is in full swing and it feels like BBC television and radio have been broadcasting Shakespeare plays and documentaries back to back all summer.
Furthermore, the fingerprints of Britain's most successful cultural export ever were all over the Olympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies, with references and speeches from Shakespeare's plays.
The Tempest, "To be or not to be", and I noticed a little bit of Romeo and Juliet in the plotting. I'm sure the list goes on.
What did you notice? Did Shakespeare keep cropping up during the Olympic Games?
