Richard Agemo grew up in the rural Midwest. A Shakespeare addict, he’s blogged about the Bard for six years. His first exposure to Shakespeare came in high school studying Hamlet, but he really got hooked after college. He studied in France where he developed the habit of reading plays before seeing them staged. Once back in the States, he began doing the same with Shakespeare’s plays, which raised his appreciation for these sublime works and their author. He lives in Washington, D.C.
