|My Shakespearean page|
In my opinion, William Shakespeare is the most distinguished, accomplished poet of all time. I admire him greatly because his brilliant words captured my interest when I was in 6th grade; I did my book report on 'The Merchant of Venice'. From then on, Reading Shakespeare's has been one of my activities I do in my spare time.
And it's no wonder why so many people love reading and quoting those lines. Even D.H. Lawrence had something to say about Shakespeare:
"When I read Shakespeare I am struck with wonder
that such trivial people should muse and thunder in
such lovely language." --D.H. Lawrence
Even though my original idea of this page was to post my favorite Shakespeare's quotes, I felt obligated to post his brief chronology, otherwise the page would lack the essence of my tribute to his works.
|The Tempest --John Waterhouse|
|If music to be the food of love, play on;|
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall:
O, it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound,
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odour!
