I love Shakespeare and wish I had seen more productions as well as just reading the plays. His tragedies, comedies, and histories are magnificent, some profound. I love A Winter's Tale, which some say he didn't write. Fabulous poetry too! Thanks for highlighting him.
I love his works too, Flossie. I was especially attracted by his "blood and thunder tragedies," like Titus Andronicus or Hamlet. I told you there's a darker side in me.So this was my tiny tribute to the great bard's anniversary.
OMGoodness, I can't believe I missed this post! I'm actually drawn to Shakespeare's lighter plays. My favorites are Twelfth Night and A Midsummer's Nights Dream, though I've read many of his tragedies as well. A man without equal!
A landmark in universal literature, though, most of the subjects in his play were not original. He was a great borrower, but he mad legends, stories, etc exquisite gems.
