"The meaning of it all" Top 5 Page for this destination Stratford-upon-Avon Favorite Tip by Jenniflower

Stratford-upon-Avon General: 42 reviews and 92 photos

Favorite thing: It's quite easy to get caught up in the lovely character of the town, the charm of the architecture, the beauty of the River Avon... one needs to remember though what this town is about and why it is so well known.

Much of this town is dedicated to the memory of a man who had an enormous impact on English literature.

His life may have been over many years ago, but to me his memory if very much a living one, every time I read one of his poems, sonnets or plays, he comes alive!

I learnt a lot about him at school, where we studied one play a year, and think it is a pity that many schools no longer do this.

Here is a man with an unsurpassed talent and depth. Sitting in your bookshelf.
