Pickpick

(Oops, forgot to review this here!) definitely enjoyed this, tho it‘s not without its flaws. I feel like it‘s almost a dramedy rather than comedy, there‘s some heavy stuff in here alongside the lighter things like the clown scenes, the lovers‘ laments, ladies-dressed-as-men trope. Also another one with just a bit too much crammed into a short play. Could‘ve done w/o one or two little side arcs. But still great & a quick, mostly light read. 4/5 ⭐️

Thou seest we are not all alone unhappy.
This wide and universal theater
Presents more woeful pageants than the scene
Wherein we play in.

And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

According to my Goodreads, I read this one at some long ago point in my life, because I had it on my vague “read before 2011” shelf (2011 being the year I started using Goodreads in earnest), but I have no memory of it at all. So technically a reread but one that‘ll feel new. 👌🏻🎭 #nowreading

#FebruaryFeels #FavePlay

Catching up from yesterday. In junior high we read The Crucible & then had a field trip to watch the play performed in Portland. While maybe not my all-time favorite play (that is probably Much Ado About Nothing or The Importance of Being Earnest or maybe Daddy Long Legs? 🤔), it made a big impression on me & is definitely a favorite.

I used random online photos for my collage.

wanderinglynn O, when she's angry, she is keen and shrewd.
She was a vixen when she went to school,
And though she be but little, she is fierce.
(Helena, Act 3 Scene 2)

Much Ado About Nothing became my #FavePlay when I saw it in 1990. It was also the start of my lifelong appreciation of Roger Allam.

#februaryfeels (Puck, Act 5 Scene 1)

It‘s hard to pick a favorite play, but this is one of my favorites because I love the language, the story, the characters. So imaginative and enchanting with the juxtaposition of the mortal world‘s problems with the fanciful faery realm and their collision.

Yoshi-and-a-book Must read all Shakespeare 📚 3d
Eggs I agree, it‘s one of my faves too❣️ 3d
