After noticing that Merchant of Venice was entered into the Stationers Register on July 22, I wondered (not for the first time) about what other days of significance there are for Shakespeare geeks? Granted this isn’t a particularly significant one, but it’s fun for context (and makes you wonder about the dates of all the other plays).
Has anybody ever attempted to compile something like this? Should we? Lord knows that whenever you walk into a bookstore around Christmas time there’s table upon table of calendars for every possible bit of trivia. Why not something for the Shakespeareans?
