EBarnacle BS: shakespeare (154* d) RE: BS: shakespeare 01 Feb 19

There is no question that he was establishment. Consider his efforts [and his father's] to get a coat of arms. There is also the issue of his being a crypto Catholic--perhaps. If you read the Greenblatt "Will in the World" you will find these issues explored more deeply.
As with many of the authors and playwrights of that era, he trod a very fine line between message and threat. In many ways, the Master of the Revels was a friend, keeping material that could be subversive and dangerous to the author from being released to the public.
