Such Peom. Much Shakespeare. Wow!

*What light. So breaks. Such east. Very sun. Wow, Juliet.
What Romeo. Such why. Very rose. Still rose.
Very balcony. Such climb.
Much love. So Propose. Wow, marriage.
Very Tybalt. Much stab. What do?
Such exile. Very Mantua. Much sad.
So, priest? Much sleeping. Wow, tomb.
Such poison. What dagger. Very dead. Wow, end.*

Romeo and Juliet, take two:

Shakespeare thread! Yeah Vera!

"This above all: to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man." - Polonius

RE: "The worst is death, and death will have his day..."
My husband teaches Shakespeare and he has a book of insults. There are three columns of words and you pick one from each column to make a fun insult.

So lets take Ken Ham as a nice example......

Thou pribbling, clapper clawed, foot licker! He reeks of moldwarp and barnacles.

Or

Ken Ham, thou gorebellied, gut-gripping, clotpole! Fuck off.

The last part wasn't Shakespeare but little ol me.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Really, Girly, Polonius*? Knowing you, I so would have expected you to go straight to this:

“The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils;
The motions of his spirit are dull as night,
And his affections dark as Erebus.
Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.”


Or even "If music be the food of love, play on"... which, to be fair, a lot of people quote, not aware that it doesn't quite go where they think it does.

"Give me excess of it; that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die."


Good ol' Shakespeare, the precursor to so many things, including mending broken hearts by listening to heaps of maudlin songs and wallowing in self-pity Rolleyes

But enough of this... By the great and wonderful Nino Rota Heart





* Mine own selves change all the time, hard to keep up, much less so - to be true to them Rolleyes

"Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything."

Girly, I'm so impressed! I didn't know you liked Shakespeare. As I've gotten older I understand Shakespeare more. I find it speaks to me and I see meaning in his words I never understood when I was younger.

Do you remember the time that George Bush first went to the 9/11 Twin Towers wreckage just after it happened and made a speech? I was watching it live on TV and thought he would make a rousing speech that would galvanize the nation. Something like Winston Churchill did during WW II, something memorable. But Bush stood up there and made this wimpy, dopy, sad little speech that fell flat. At least that's what I thought.

This is what I envisioned...... or at least something very similar.

I wanted to add, Girly, that my husband, who's an actor and does Shakespeare all the time, did this speech at my mothers funeral. She loved this piece. It was her favorite.

Oh Girly, I found this wonderful version of the St Crispin speech. I really like it!!





Ok, I'm done with the Crispin speech thingy. I'll shut up now and go onto other things.

This is just too awesome to chuck into an existing thread, so, without further ado (about nothing... well, sorry, we all knew it was inevitable! Rolleyes ): the deaths in Shakespeare!

I think Iras and Antigonus are my favourite (the latter, because of Wodehouse Blush ). Oh, and Tamora and the pies. [Image: thEmoticon-Pie.gif]

This is proof of why you don't bring a knife to a gunfight, unless you're Bill "Fucking" Shakespeare. Yes

The second mouse gets the cheese.

I am never into reading anything that is not science related, but I must say that julius ceasar is a guilty pleasure of mine.
