On the other hand, I don’t think that ol’ Billy Shakespeare in any way spoon fed his humanist philosophies, the propaganda to support first Elizabeth’s slightly tenuous claim to the throne then James’ semi-opposing claim, or the psychological and emotional manipulation techniques to make him memorable.
