This piece of classic literature is a must-read for fans of robotics and scifi. R.U.R. is the origin of the term and concept of robot. In the case of this book, it was a commentary on slavery. #robot #robotorigin #robotics

TheSpineView I hadn't thought of Macbeth! Good choice! ❤❤ 2d
cleoh @TheSpineView I had to think for a moment before I remembered him, but ever since I read the play in high school he‘s been one of my favourites 2d

Twelfth Night | William Shakespeare
post image

Ian Doescher (of Shakespeare's Star Wars fame) helped develop a plan to read all of Shakespeare in 2020. It's mostly chronological but some of the plays align with the calendar (Twelfth Night on Twelfth Night, Julius Caear in mid-March, etc).
Info: https://shakespeareandbeyond.folger.edu/2019/12/06/shakespeare-2020-project-read...

The Glass Menagerie | Tennessee Williams

I'll call this a Pick because I found the autobiographical elements made the play even more compelling. I was a bit lost when it came to classifying this as a memory play, but overall it worked well even on paper. With the right cast, though, it could be electric on stage.

Lysistrata | Aristophanes

An Ancient Greek play that is a strong contender for one of the funniest, raunchiest things I‘ve ever read.

To end an endless war, the women of Athens and Sparta band together in the decision to refuse sex until the war is ended.

Thank you for the chance to read this, @SerialReader . I loved it!

Bookzombie I think I might read this for #Booked2019 . I read a YA a while back that was a retelling or used a similar premise. 2w
batsy I loved it too! So brilliant. 2w

Getting a head start on next semester's grad school work by starting to check off some of the novels I have to read. A reread for me since I read this in high school. Still just an okay play in my opinion, but it was nice to reacquaint myself with it again.
