I think it’s fair to say that 2016 has been a tumultuous year all round. I don’t really talk about current affairs, assuming that those who are here are here for the Shakespeare (and possibly my own idiosyncratic take on it – but mostly for the Shakespeare). But I don’t think anyone can let such a year go by without noting its passing. Which (as you might expect) will be done mostly through the medium of Shakespeare blogposts.
