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.)

This Royal Shakespeare Company production sold out almost the moment it was released - here‘s hoping they do some love cinema screens too 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼

Cinfhen Oh wow!! This sounds fabulous 1mo
Mitch @Cinfhen I would have loved to have got tickets! Hopefully it‘s run will be extended. 🤞🏼 1mo
Cinfhen I hope so 🙏🏻 1mo
Chrissyreadit I‘ve not been sure I would like this - because it seems sad but the more I read about it the more intrigued I am by the historical fiction. 1mo

Mehso-so

This book was an interesting premise, but I didn‘t love reading it. At points I enjoyed it, but a lot I had to force my way through.

This book examines several of Shakespeare's plays in the context of the time and provides many interesting details about Elizabethan England.

Interesting and informative, this book wasn‘t what I expected. It‘s much more about Shakespeare‘s world than himself (naturally, as his life is so little known), so I learned a lot about the transition from Elizabethan to Jacobean times, the Gunpowder Plot, and some about the bubonic plague. Scattered throughout is info about the influences on the three plays most likely written this year: Lear, MacBeth, and Antony and Cleopatra. Accessible👇🏻

ravenlee to a relative newbie. I‘ve read just a few of the plays, some in high school and some on my own (but somehow none for undergrad literature degree and only one for MA in humanities…), but it did help that I just read King Lear a couple months ago. 2mo
