In love with Shakespeare
Posted: March 14, 2014

I’ve been thinking a lot about Shakespeare lately. This is not just because I think about Shakespeare at least once a week. My beloved Bard was the idol upon whom my entire current love of English literature is founded. If that sounds passé, I have no apologies to make.
