There is a wonderful interview with Janelle Jansted, in the current publication of The Shakespeare Standard, By Jeffrey Kahan.
It’s a bit of a read, but by god, what a fascinating woman. She’s very clear about her first disinterested forays into the cult of Shakespeare, but her life story of academia, and travel, and discovery is really inspiring.
I also love that her discovery of maps, street maps, ancient maps, have appeared in her life. A recent story that I’m writing has changed (a lot) because I decided to draw a map where the characters lived and migrated to.
At any rate, it was a nice read about a woman I really admire. And that was a nice find this week.
