For Shakespeare, all the world’s a stage. For us, understanding can only be achieved via the page.
Quote of the Day:
…test yourself with the opening speech in the last and darkest of the comedies, Measure for Measure. Read it at the speed of speech, close your eyes, and summarise what Duke Vincentio is saying:
Of government the properties to unfold,
Would seem in me to affect speech and discourse;
Since I am put to know that your own science
Exceeds, in that, the lists of all advice
My strength can give you: then no more remains,
But that to your sufficiency as your Worth is able,
And let them work.
