MacKey, Robert. "Portrait of Shakespeare Unveiled, 399 Years Late." The Lede. 9 March 2009.
I'd heard rumors about this, but I hadn't seen the images until today: A Newly-Discovered Portrait of Shakespeare—or, at least, a newly-revealed portrait. But is it of Shakespeare? Or is it of some other man of the same name?
My attention was just drawn to another article on the subject. And another. And there will, no doubt, be more and more on the subject as the world contemplates the newest (oldest) possible image of Shakespeare.
Bardfilm is normally written as one word, though it can also be found under a search for "Bard Film Blog." Bardfilm is a Shakespeare blog (admittedly, one of many Shakespeare blogs), and it is dedicated to commentary on films (Shakespeare movies, The Shakespeare Movie, Shakespeare on television, Shakespeare at the cinema), plays, and other matter related to Shakespeare (allusions to Shakespeare in pop culture, quotes from Shakespeare in popular culture, quotations that come from Shakespeare, et cetera).
Unless otherwise indicated, quotations from Shakespeare's works are from the following edition:
Shakespeare, William. The Riverside Shakespeare. 2nd ed. Gen. ed. G. Blakemore Evans. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1997.
