William Shakespeare
(April 23, 1564 – April 23, 1616)
"…the nearest thing in incarnation to the eye of god." —Sir Laurence Olivier
"There are only a few artists in all the arts who can be called the best without argument. I can only think of two—Mozart and Shakespeare." —Orson Welles
On this date 450 years ago, a man was born into obscurity. That man would change the world with his writing, leave us the greatest treasure trove of stories and characters in the English language, and ultimately receive the most screen credits for a single person in film history.
So, here’s to Shakespeare and to his legacy in the cinema—an art form that wouldn’t be invented until centuries after his death.

Christopher Johnson McCandless (February 12, 1968 – August 1992) was an American hiker who adopted the alias Alexander Supertramp and ventured into the Alaskan wilderness in April 1992 with little food and equipment, hoping to live simply for a time in solitude. Almost four months later, McCandless’s starved remains were found, weighing only 67 pounds (30 kg). His death occurred in a converted bus used as a backcountry shelter, near Lake Wentitika in Denali National Park and Preserve.

In January 1993, Jon Krakauer published McCandless’ story in that month’s issue of Outside magazine. Inspired by the details of McCandless’s story, Krakauer wrote and published Into the Wild in 1996 about McCandless’ travels. The book was adapted into a film by Sean Penn in 2007 with Emile Hirsch portraying McCandless. That same year, McCandless’s story also became the subject of Ron Lamothe’s documentary The Call of the Wild.

A full-length article on McCandless also appeared in the February 8, 1993 issue of the The New Yorker magazine.

Notes: Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road.

———————————————————————

There is a pleasure 

in the pathless woods,

There is a rapture 

on the lonely shore,

There is society, 

where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, 

and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, 

but Nature more. View Larger
