Query: Shakespeare's Will (21)
Shakespeare Electronic Conference, Vol. 1, No. 34. Wednesday, 29 Aug 1990.
 
Date:     Tue, 28 Aug 90 19:55 EST
From:     "Blondeness: Not just a colour, but an attitude!"
Subject:  Shakespeare's Will
 
If anyone can put forth a reasonable theory for the question of why
Shakespeare, in his will, left only the second best bed to his wife, it would
be much appreciated. I am doing research for a paper on the importance of women
in the Elizabethan family, and would like to use this as an example, but
unfortunately I can't find a reasonable answer. ANY theories will be welcomed!
Even silly ones at this point!!!!
