Tuesday: Shakespeare

Tonight at 7pm we will be reading aloud A Midsummer Night's Dream.

We met at 7pm with four people attending (one reader had to leave after Act II). Afterwards we agreed that this is probably the best play we have read so far. It's certainly the funniest, and there are no parts of it which seemed slack. Also the light wit of the earlier comedies seems to have given way to some more substantial stuff. Of course one feels like an idiot trying to say anything about Shakespeare, knowing that the way has been trod a thousand times by those more equipped to travel it.

Let everyone remember that "The course of true love never did run smooth" is NOT from Romeo and Juliet.
