Hey, are there any Shakespeare types in here?
I need to write a long essay and was wondering if there's any other 'eareans in here.

1. I'm rather a fan of Shakespeare
I have even been known to mangle english in iambic pentameter.

2. What's your essay on?
Or have you already had to turn it in?

4. Sonnet 49
Against that time, if ever that time come,

When I shall see thee frown on my defects,

When as thy love hath cast his utmost sum,

Call'd to that audit by advised respects;

Against that time when thou shalt strangely pass

And scarcely greet me with that sun thine eye,

When love, converted from the thing it was,

Shall reasons find of settled gravity,--

Against that time do I ensconce me here

Within the knowledge of mine own desert,

And this my hand against myself uprear,

To guard the lawful reasons on thy part:

To leave poor me thou hast the strength of laws,

Since why to love I can allege no cause.

5. Big time, in case that isn't obvious.
Edited on Tue Aug-23-05 10:54 AM by Orsino
My father was a Shakespearean scholar and occasional amateur/collegiate actor. Seven years after he played Malvolio, I trod the same boards as Feste (because I'd written songs for the production; I had wanted the part of Orsino). My wife and I had our fist date at the Shakespeare Tavern, and occasionally return to the scene of the crime. My favorite movies are Branagh's adaptations.

I recently finshed this little burlesque. I'm trying to play a Shakesperean fool in a role-playing game, you see, and decided that the little bit of dialogue I had written as background info could easily be tweaked into play form.

7. I have a fairly decent knowledge of Shakespeare.
I'm no expert but if I know what your topic is I might be able to help you.

8. "Give me my Romeo; And when he shall die, Take him and cut
him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun."

Ah, for a love such as that.....
Will could capture a heart like no other

9. Me. I love Shakespeare.
I'm a little rusty, but I'm sure it'll come back to me. I took a couple of semesters back in college and see a performance whenever I can. I used to like the histories best. :-)

Rhiannon :hi:
