Dear Shakespeare, an update on sleep…

midsummer's_sleep.jpgShiban Ganju writes a letter to Shakespeare in 3 Quarks Daily, updating the Bard on the scientific advances in understanding sleep.

Shakespeare was obviously fascinated by sleep as many of his plays and poems contain references to sleep and dreaming, perhaps the most famous being A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Ganju also notes that Macbeth and Lady MacBeth had troubled stage 4 sleep and that King Richard had significant sleep pathologies.
