The planets have aligned, and my muse whispers in my ear, urging me to write, and influencing my reading. The agenda encompasses Shakespeare’s works. It’s the season a return to school, learning, and the bard. I have been re-reading sonnets.
Conversations with friends revolve around who likes which play the best. My friend is partial to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. Chicago area lawns are hosting free performances of “The Comedy of Errors’ with Shakespeare in the Park events. I prefer either “Macbeth” or “Hamlet”, while others like “Othello” or “Taming of the Shrew”.
I am re-reading “Venus and Adonis”, Shakespeare’s first published work. They say Shakespeare based it on a story found in Ovid’s “Metamorphoses”. I am looking forward to it, as it is becoming a favorite.
Does your reading run in phases? What are you reading?
Keep on writing.
