Shakespeare
Shakespeare: The Bard's Guide to Abuses and Affronts | William Shakespeare
16 posts | 2 read | 2 to read
Presenting a most civilized way to silence boors, deflect rudeness, and chide churlish lovers: Our mini book of insults culled from the dramatic works of English literature's most gifted wordsmith. Shakespeare's enduring putdowns include "Thou art a very ragged Wart" (Henry IV), "Thy kiss is as comfortless as frozen water to a starved snake" (Troilus and Cressida), and "In civility thou seem'st so empty" (As You Like It). Why resort to vulgarity when a high-brow literary epithet does the job so well?

So is anyone watching "Will" on TNT?!!? If you can check your Shakespeare scholarship and any nit picky-ness at the door and just enjoy the ride, it is so much fun!! This is not a scholarly endeavor, but it sure is a good time!!

Centique Sounds fabulous! I will have to dig around to see if it's available in NZ. 2y
sprainedbrain How did I not know about this? I see Jamie Campbell Bower. 😍 2y
Sydsavvy I've got it saved and can't wait to dive in!! 2y

Love this Secular Saints candle! "Patron Saint of cross-dressers, star-crossed lovers, and upstart crows." Walking into that bookshop in Litiz was such a good idea! Now I'm fighting with the lighting in this motel room. #bookster #bookish #booklover #bookworm #bookporn #shakespeare #williamshakespeare #secularsaints #candle #secularsaintscandles

A few #bookishgoods (that I haven't already shown) ... my bookshelf infinity scarf, Shakespeare socks and a book-shaped "Library" tape measure. #RiotGrams

Hollie That scarf is incredible! 3y
Melissa_J Where did you get that scarf? I want one 😊 3y
LeahBergen @Hollie Thanks! 🙂 3y

LeahBergen @Melissa_J I found it on Etsy but can't remember the name of the seller. It shipped from Turkey. 😀 3y
Hobbinol Too bad the book rule isn't titled Measure for Measure. Then it would go great with those socks: There's language in her eye, her cheek, her lip; Nay, her foot speaks. Do they come in different sizes, or only pentameter? 😉
3y
LeahBergen @Hobbinol Ooo, it TOTALLY should be titled that. You should go into bookish goods research and development! (edited) 3y

Halfway through what's been an amazing trip to France. Hit up the famous Shakespeare and Company on our last afternoon in Paris (post Cafe au lait along the Seine)! 🙌🏻☕️📚
