Shakespeare: Fourth Quarter

Four quarters don’t quite make a whole, as I still have Henry VIII, The Two Noble Kinsmen and Edward III to go. But I’ve got through 36 Shakespeare plays.

That last quarter included several of the best known ones, all of which I liked – The Tempest, The Winter’s Tale, Anthony and Cleopatra, Macbeth, King Lear. Of the less well known plays of this batch, the one that really grabbed me was Cymbeline, which I think deserves to be much better known. Coriolanus was not bad either, though the unpleasantness of the central character makes it tougher. Pericles is silly, and Timon of Athens simply not very good.

One thought on “Shakespeare: Fourth Quarter

  1. SNP stance is they’d want to get rid asap. What Scottish politicians proposing expensive policies will do without Trident (It only costs n/100th what Trident does!) is another question.
