Shakespeare stirs powerful emotions and some visitors to the Birthplace find being in the house where he grew up a very moving experience.  Jasmine from Atlanta Georgia was generous enough to share not just her thoughts about Shakespeare but also her feelings. “I’ve loved him my whole life,” she says, “he changed the world forever, he changed language forever.”  We talked in the parlour of the Birthplace and Jasmine had just walked barefoot across the stone floor that is believed to be the original floor of the house – quite literally walking in William Shakespeare’s footsteps.
