Anne Hathaway’s Cottage
Anne Hathaway was the wife of W. Shakespeare, whom a man from UK mentioned to represent a great writer in the introduction of his country two years ago. We visited her cottage in the Tudor style surrounded by various plants and pretty flowers in 2017. I wonder who is a comparable writer in Japan, whose place many fans enjoy visiting.
It is noticeable that the life of the wife, Anne and the heroines in Shakespeare’s plays were the subject of study. As one of such, we have Lafcadio Hearn’s studies of Shakespeare known to us by his students’ notebooks published as “Lectures on Shakespeare”, “History of English Literature” and others. His essays and our senior teachers have been very influential in Japan.
The cottage plays the good role of a museum that tells us the tradition of English culture in “Shakespeare Birthplace Trust”. We are now very interested in the cottage and the garden.
