Wednesday, September 10th. William Shakespeare's Thought For The Day:


"Thou art like the harpy,
Which, to betray, dost with thine angel's face,
Seize with thine eagle's talons."

Pericles, Act IV, Scene 3, Lines 46-48.

6. I don't think Shakespeare was misogynist, but there is an awful lot of material
in his plays that can be levelled negatively at women. He goes after men, too, but usually as individuals. Women as a gender get slammed.

A product of his time, I guess...
