  1. MidSummer Night's Dream:
    I'm little bit scared of Shakespeare. I only put 1 of his plays on spin # 8. His language is beautiful, mysterious…and far too big to handle for me without some preparation.
    I like what Homer said: "Avoid it; for this is the hardest month, wintry, hard for sheep and hard for men."

    1. Oh, yay! Another Shakespearian won over! I'm reading King Lear at the moment. It's still my favourite. Such anguish and malice and manipulation with so many common threads running through it. Fantastic!
