Imagine that you could travel back in time and meet some famous person in history. Whom you like to meet?  Use specific examples and reasons to explain your answer.

Literature is full of mysteries. For example, how did Mark Twain emerge so suddenly as a brilliant writer? It has been suggested that he had help, so to speak, from some other author; but from whom? Perhaps the biggest mystery of literature to me, however, is who really wrote Shakespeare’s plays. For that reason, I would like to interview Shakespeare and ask him about the origins of his work.

The first question I would ask Shakespeare might be, “How could any one person have all the learning shown in your plays?” Another question might be, “Isn’t there strong evidence that Francis Bacon had a hand in at least some of your writings?” If such a conversation were possible, how would Shakespeare respond to those questions? Would he become angry? Would he explain patiently? Would he be amused? It is interesting to speculate. because we know so little about Shakespeare himself.

Of course, no conversation like this will ever occur, unless time travel becomes possible someday. What is more, only Shakespeare himself could clear up this mystery about his work. In any case, imagining a talk with Shakespeare is almost as entertaining as reading his plays.
