This week, a poet's take on poets: "More strange than true. I never may believe/These antique fables, nor these fairy toys/Lovers and madmen have such seething brains..." -Theseus, in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" Fairies, Royals Shakespeare, Google Search, Moon Stars, Dreams Photo, Dreams Royals, A Midsummer Night Dreams Sets, Midsummer Nights Dream, Antiques
Things that are base and vile, and held in contempt, can be transformed by Love, and given form and dignity. Love functions through the mind, not sight: that's why winged cupid is always depicted as blind." (I.1.6-10)
Romeo & Juliet was 1st like most 13yr olds. My all time favorite written, acted on stage, and even the movie is A MidSummer Nights Dream. My Dad took me every 2wks to Cincinnati Shakespeare Festival where you could sit on the stage. Puck snuck up a ladder right next to me. I only wish Mr.S hadn't always name girl's names so similar.
