comedy and tragedy

London – Day 2

Oh, boy, where to start. Got up about six this morning and made some coffee. TBG got up about fifteen minutes later, thanks to some garbage collectors. We made breakfast and then he went for a walk while I missed about on the computer.
We met up with Jeff at 9:40 and headed over to The Sloan House. He was a famous architect in London and, boy, did he love to travel and bring stuff home. The house was packed, quite literally from floor to ceiling with paintings, books, artifacts and just about everything else. What was lovely as that there was a Charlotte Bronte exhibit in one of the rooms, so I was able to spend a little time with one of my favorite authors. There was also a Shakespeare room where we got to see a first folio of his works. Tres cool.Collapse )
comedy and tragedy

(no subject)

1) What was the first Shakespeare play you read or seen preformed?
2) What is your favorite Shakespeare play?
3) What is your least favorite Shakespeare play?
4) Who do you think wrote Shakespeare; are you a Stratfordian or Oxfordian?
5) Which Shakespeare plays have you read or seen or seen preformed?

1. Hamlet

2. Hamlet (tragedy), Much Ado about Nothing (comedy)

3. Richard III

4. I guess I don't understand the question. I think Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare.

5. Much Ado, Hamlet, Midsummer, Twelfth Night, As You Like it, Taming of the Shrew, Richard III, Titus A, Macbeth, Henry Parts one and two, Merchant of Venice and Love's Labors Lost, I think there are more, but those are the ones that spring to mind.
