“When the hurly-burly’s done, when the battle’s lost and won” quote from Macbeth.
Anyway I think it's a rather suitable for the first Shakespeare Sunday of the year. It's when we're putting those resolutions on ourselves, to better us in one way or another.
As we’re in December it’s a perfect time to do a round up of Shakespeare Sundays. A quick read through the last 12!
To find out more about why I call *looks both ways* Macbeth The Scottish Play have a read of Shakespeare Sunday 200817.
So Bill and I go back a while. My mother’s a big fan, there’s even a portrait of him hanging in the family dining room (looking snazzy on an oxblood coloured wall). English literature was one of my favourite classes, being able to go over his work and study it properly. It’s when I first realised that Shakespeare is better performed live.
By far my favourite play from the Bard. I read it, saw all film/tv variations of the time, and anything related to it during my time at school preparing for GCSEs. This wasn't a voluntary situation, my whole class were put through vigorous The Scottish Play study as my English teacher had broken her arm. It was a simple case of wheeling in the tv set and putting on the tape rather than having an actual English literature teacher in for the lesson.
