Subject:        Judith's Wedding; Shakespeare's Death

I'm working on something which may or may not turn into a play or a
script, based on the last months of Shakespeare's life. A couple of
questions I'd like to ask other SHAKSPEReans: why, in your opinion, did
Judith and Thomas Quiney marry in Lent and risk excommunication? Would
it have been a more sombre affair than normal? And also--have there been
any sustained interpretations or examinations made as to the nature of
Shakespeare's ill-health, leading to his death? Many books suggest he
was in failing health at least in the two years before his death, but
very sick by March 1616.

Thanks,
Sophie Masson
