Firethorn's Den

My Shakespearean page


Stay passenger, why goest thou by so fast?
Read if thou canst whom envious Death hath placed
Within this monument, Shakespeare,
With whom quick nature died:
Leaves living art but page to serve his wit....

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!
--Twelth Night
