Shakespeare Sunday Round Up III

Compilation of the last 9 Shakespeare Sundays

Hey it’s roughly that time again when we look over the Shakespeare (and Wednesday Wisdom) tidbits that I’ve been feeding you! Without further ado (lol) let’s get started!

101217 | Love’s Labour’s Lost

"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May’s new-fangled mirth;" Love's Labour's LostWhen I explained that it’s actually more common to get snow on Easter Sunday (the then more popular holiday) then on Christmas day. You can blame Charles for that.

 

 

 

 

 

171217 | Hamlet

"My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go." HamletI honestly can’t remember why, but I sound well gloomy in this post- and I’m not sure why! Point is still right.

 

 

 

 

 

 

241217 | The Comedy of Errors

"Let's go hand in hand, no on before another." The Comedy of ErrorsTalking about simple displays of equality, even if it’s just walking abreast of your friend or making sure you’re giving the same rights to everybody. You know- simple things.

 

 

 

 

 

311217 | Sonnet 74

"The worth of that is that which it contains, And that is this, and this with thee remains." Sonnet 74, Willy ShakespeareA salute and fairwell to 2017 on the last day of the year- to remind you all that people are remembered for many things. Including what they destroyed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

070118 | MacBeth

"Let every man be master of his time." MacbethPart of my take on the whole “New Year New Me” things, which just a reminder that we’re all in charge of our time. The real trick is using it efficiently- and in MacBeth’s case to cover the murder of his good friend.

 

 

 

 

 

140118 | Henry VI

"I am as vigilant as cat to steal cream" Henry VI, with a picture of a kitty catI just wanted to do things about cats. Nothing deep.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

210118 | Sonnet 98

"April hath put a spirit of youth in everything" from Sonnet 98 on the background of forest on a Spring morningThe follies of youth, or “before I realised how much heating cost”. I’ve started to shift my enjoyment of the seasons to the warmer ones with age.

 

 

 

 

 

 

280118 | King Lear

"How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!" King LearJust my butt hurt following our experiences at the cinema. I really don’t like kids.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

040218 | Much Ado About Nothing

"I would challenge you to a battle of wits, but I see you are unarmed!" Much Ado About NothingThere is something quintessentially English about being able to clap back with a line like this. I may or may not have used it liberally since.

 

 

 

 

110218 | Alls Well That Ends Well

"Ay, is it not a language I speak?" 'Alls Well That Ends Well' ShakespeareThinking about how curious life and language is that my American, and Irish colleagues and myself discuss in the same native language- but I still have to repeat themselves 😀

 

 

 

 

 

180218 | As You Like It

"If I be waspish, best beware of my sting." As You Like It by the BillThe Shakespearean equivalent of being sassy, but reminding people that there is something to be wary of. Great quote!
