Happy birthday to the Bard!
I have always genuinely loved Shakespeare. King Lear, Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Taming of the Shrew are some of my favourite plays. I still think that King Lear is my most favourite but I’ve been known to change my mind.
I do struggle with the language at times and I don’t always know what’s being said, I’m also not a huge fan on the ‘King’ plays, but one of my favourite things to do when I was in school was wait until there was nobody in the house and just boom it out. Reciting Shakespeare out loud and with conviction is ridiculously fun. It’s something I haven’t done in years and really should do again. Just blast it out like you know what you’re doing and it does start to come together in your mind or at least it did for me way back when! ♀️
I hope everyone is having a great start to your week. I’m still in a bit of a reading slump but I am reading a gorgeous work of poetry called Rocket Fantastic by @gabbat that’s a wonderful find and I’m savouring it. .
