This has #BeenOnYourTBRTooLong; 8 years, in fact. I started reading about 4 years ago, then other stuff got in the way and I have yet to pick it up again. Shapiro neatly dispenses with the contenders for the “who really wrote Shakespeare‘s plays?” question. I really must finish it soon.

From The Comedy of Errors, Adriana in response to being told “A man is master of his liberty”:

“Why should their liberty than ours be more?”

That‘s what I‘m saying, girl!

Lauraandherbooks I have it saved to my list but I haven‘t even seen a single episode yet 21h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics Some of the idiotic happenings ... 🤣 of course I‘m now alive in this era portrayed ..so I remember some of it in real time ... 21h
GingerAntics Oh wow that is a trip! Oh my god I need to hurry up and get paid!!! I need to see this! lol 21h
TheBookHippie @Lauraandherbooks ACK it is so well written the dialog ❤️❤️❤️❤️ then the filming is just phenomenal, actors are stunningly talented ! 21h
Lauraandherbooks I was afraid it would be cheesy or tacky , but I will definitely get started on it , thanks! 21h
TheBookHippie @GingerAntics I think the writing is even better in this one. 21h
TheBookHippie @Lauraandherbooks Some of it I was like WOE ...okay then 😳 a bit of nudity- but it proves it‘s point. It‘s really interesting. 21h
Lauraandherbooks I had watched some documentary about them that turned out to be very unsatisfactory- it showed them in a manner I definitely did not like and I hope they aren‘t really like that 21h
TheBookHippie @Lauraandherbooks I think taking this in as a whole I have come to admire them more for their humanness and I absolutely respect Elizabeth so much more, and appreciate how wounded Charles childhood affected him, the choices they had thrust upon them -their sense of duty and honor is remarkable. 21h
AmyG Oh, it‘s not cheesy at all. Great writing and yes @TheBookHippie I also think the writing is better. And I am thrilled to be in an era I remember. Yes...I can not begin to imagine the weight of being the King or Queen of England. Also what the family has to deal with. (edited) 21h
TheBookHippie @AmyG It‘s sooooo good 😭😭😭❤️ 21h
Hamlet The series is great... and so is this play! 9h
TheBookHippie @Hamlet two favorites !!! It‘s so much fun. 9h

Out of the mouth of the “mad” comes the truthes power doesn‘t want to hear. #shakespearereadalong @GingerAntics

GingerAntics The collection of mad men in this play do seem to get the best, most truthful lines. 1d
Graywacke What a rant, the whole of it! 1d
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Isn‘t it? Lear would be a fun role to play! 1d
Graywacke @Lcsmcat oh, that would be good fun. 1d
batsy Don't know what Shakespeare was tapping into there for inspiration but I love it. Lear's "mad" monologues are next level. 20h

I don‘t read a lot of plays and this one was good, though it was confusing at times. Ultimately, a great reveal at the end.

This book was an easy listen but Amy‘s overdramatic thoughts were kind of annoying throughout. I also don‘t have children yet (pregnant with twins though) so maybe that‘s why I didn‘t feel super connected.
