Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Mrs Shakespeare

Not to be confused with some modern day actress chick, Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway died on August 6, 1623.

As outlined in an excellent book by Bill Bryson, there is a tiny amount of evidence available about the life of William Shakespeare and a mountain of conjecture. One of the few things that is known, is that when he died, he bequeathed Anne his "second best bed".

Professional harpie, Germaine Greer has gone to great lengths to add to the mountain and suggest there is nothing to be inferred about their relationship in this. Riiiiight.
