The reason I‘m reading Shakespeare is because I‘m taking a class on him this semester. But I did enjoy this one!

The Taming of the Shrew | William Shakespeare

Hate to admit Mr. Shakespeare did make me laugh a little.

Hamlet | William Shakespeare
Mehso-so

I had to read this for my Shakespeare class this semester. I honestly thought I would hate this class and everything I have to read for it, but i love my professor and honestly this play didn‘t suck too bad. It was a pretty fast and painless read. I will say hamlet was kinda funny but he was also a piss baby who needed to shut up at times. Also the lumineers hyped Ophelia up way too much.

1. I don‘t like waiting. Especially waiting for others to do things that only they can do, that will take them five minutes, and the absence of their task is preventing me from completing my task. I cope by venting and whining, and by finding other things to do.
2. Everyone should have the opportunity to visit a place that takes them out of their comfort zone.

It was really fun listening to The Two Gentlemen of Verona as my first #AuldLangSpine pick: audio voices and music brought it to life in a way that reading it from my heavy tome wouldn‘t have. A light story about BFFs pursuing the same woman, with one of them having abandoned his own partner very abruptly, prompting her to come after him dressed as a man. (Not so cool: things get patched up after a sexual assault.)

Years ago, one of our teen pages read this and emphatically told me not to - it was boring and nothing happens. I thought, “oh no, this poor high school kid - he doesn‘t get it, it supposedly a VERY BIG DEAL as far as plays go”. Well, friends, I read it. It IS boring and NOTHING happens and I should‘ve just listened to that student long ago. Lesson learned.

mdemanatee We specifically only watched this versus reading this in modern theatre history. I have friends that adore it. I was once asked to play it for a class when my professor was snowed in and hated it even when I didn‘t have to pay attention 😂 I understand it. I know I‘m supposed to be uncomfortable. That the inaction is the point. And I‘m still like “ nope.” (edited) 2w
Sarahreadstoomuch @mdemanatee I‘d like to think that seeing the play would be a bit better somehow than reading it - given the stage direction and such, there could be some funny parts. Maybe? But I don‘t think I‘m going to test that theory. Like ever. 2w

Such a fun chance to dip into the wildest Bennett sister‘s world. I love that we have a chance to see Lydia mature and learn to take some responsibility for her life. The audio was entertaining, but the music was obnoxious at times and really loud compared to the dialogue. Definitely worth a listen. (Litsy wouldn‘t recognize the correct book, so I tagged another great one.)

A strange assortment from the Book Sorting today. . . The Modern Library is Sixteen Famous American Plays. Let us just say that the fame here was in most cases of the fleeting variety. A.A. Milne was somewhat more fortunate with his play. 😄

LeahBergen I like that Milne! 2w
