“Thou knowest, winter tames man, woman, and beast” from Taming of the Shew by Shakespeare.
You’re reading this as we now emerging from the “Beast from the East”- after it hit Europe, the UK, and Ireland around Thursday. To be fair it is still winter after all at least for a few more weeks. I’m actually writing this a week ahead of time, looking at the forecast we’re not going to have a bad time of it in Cork. Possibly a dusting of snow (that never sticks) and some minus temperatures, it’ll be like it was in early January!
I do like Taming of the Shrew especially in the BBC’s Retold studded with amazing actresses and actors and comedians. It’s well worth a watch- it even got an 8.3/10 on IMDB. I think the only way to watch it now, as it was released back in 2005, is to buy the DVD set on Amazon. They have a wonderful version of MacBeth starring James MacAvoy as MacBeth- set in the world of celebrity chefs and restaurants rather than the monarchy of Scotland.
