Tiny jealousies?

I wrote this piece in the spirit of fun, however, the more I read it the more it rings true.

Crab!, Shakespeare, faceless man.
He is not a hero, but an ideal.
The reservoir of all our dreams.
The dream of the pen wielder
and key striker and notator
and all others who observe and record.

  1. I like this one šŸ˜Š it’s interesting to think of Shakespeare as something more than a person, like he’s become an abstract concept that represents a lot more than an individual identity (well that’s the impression I got from it anyway).

    • Your interpretation is dead on. Hard for me to look at *him* as a person what with all the wonderful conspiracy theories and *his* (its?) legendary status. While I am not as moved by Shakespeare as some, he’s a force to reckon with if you care to observe and record the world.

      • It’s a really interesting way of viewing Shakespeare! I see what you mean, there are some very compelling and some very far fetched conspiracies surrounding him! I’m slightly more of a Marlowe fan but do like Shakespeare.

  2. Being an avid lover of Shakespeare’s words, I am at first compelled to frown with dissension, but I must own that the theories and suppositions surrounding him/his life/it’s life are as compelling as my reaction and, perhaps, this sheds some light on your verse as well as the true nature of the writer(s). A Dichotic extension of the human psyche embodied in one name. (OR I could simply be lost in the Dream of the Pen Wielder)
