Happy Birthday to the world’s best selling author! William Shakespeare!
My favourite quote of ALL things Shakespeare is:
This above all: to thine own self be true,
What is yours?
I never really got into Romeo and Juliet, funnily enough. My favourite Shakespeare play is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream“
The most recent thing that I have learnt though. You can absolutely love Shakespeare, you can love his writings, his plays, his quotes. But don’t ever feel like you HAVE to sit down and watching a play. I recently read a really good “what not to do list”. One of them was, if you don’t want to see a Shakespeare, don’t. I was so happy to read that! I love watching my favourite actors and actresses do Shakespeare monologues. I have yet to see a whole Shakespeare play though.
Also, you HAVE to watch David Mitchells comedy show based on Shakespeare life. Upstart Crow
