Procession_of_Characters_from_Shakespeare's_Plays_-_Google_Art_ProjectUntil two years ago, I had never seen a Shakespeare play on stage, and when I finally did, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. But something stuck, and I decided to learn more, so I started this blog to chart my way through the Bard’s plays. I’m reading them chronologically (according to Stanley Wells), as that seems as good a method as any, and will do a weekly play post every Saturday. I will also write opera and book reviews (I’ll draw a line on flower reviews), and about various other culture-related stuff. My background is in theology and music, and not in English lit, so this is a strictly non-academic blog, and all opinions are precisely that – I read some background on all the plays (three cheers to Arden Shakespeare), but mostly will write my own impressions.

My other blog is here: https://butterflyinthelibrary.wordpress.com/
