Not just a blog, a philosophy
by Jack Monroe, bestselling author of 'A Girl Called Jack'
Realist, writer, reader, reviewer and rocker.
The Real England is a concise, direct, and not-so-gentle window into the depths of the leftovers of the world’s once greatest empire. It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.

Good arguments. I recall a lot of Bacon/Marlowe advocates many years ago. They were often convincing too. 🙂
Best wishes, Pete. x
Common sense, really. To suggest otherwise, as Rylance and his like do, betrays a classist, snobbish attitude that seems to say one can only be intelligent if one is upper class. Absolute b******s!
Well said, Sarah. x
I’ve always agreed with the sentiment that it was incredibly snobbish to imply that only someone from an upper-class background would have possessed the intelligence and talent to write Shakespeare’s plays.
Of course, I’ve also felt that Shakespeare’s work was hijacked by the literary critics a long time ago, and as a result it is easy to forget that his plays were the popular entertainment of their day. There is a certain snobbishness in that as well, because certain critics will never ever want to acknowledge that anything created for the masses can also be intelligent and philosophical and deeply concerned with exploring the human condition.
Absolutely, Ben. That snobbism is still a huge part of 21st-century life and the attitude needs to be eradicated from the earth.
