Did you know...Shakespeare is the most filmed author of all time: he's been credited on more than 1,000 movies and TV shows.`Obscene', `gloomy', `fashionable' and `generous' are among the countless new words that Shakespeare introduced. (Actually, `countless' is one of his too.) It's also because of the Bard that we say `catch a cold', `naked truth' and `green-eyed monster'. Almost all the moons of Uranus are named after characters from Shakespeare, including Titania, Oberon and Puck?
For further fascinating insights, dive into this masterful miscellany and become a Shakespeare buff.
