main proof of the existence of Shakespeare as a real man is his very strange will.Modern historians fall into a stupor from one phrase that is contained in it: "What will the second best bed in the house of my wife."Shakespeare still argue that it frazochka means contempt, a kind of English humor or real inheritance?It looks great playwright was a very weird ...
