Welcome to Lovers of Shakespeare

To be or not to be, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to — 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

Saw the Ralph Fiennes version of Coriolanus on TV over the New Year. A modern version that really is for our times. RF playing the lead and directing, it got to the heart of the play. Highly recommended.

Just watched the Anthony Hopkins "Titus". In my opinion a stunning film.

Hellen Mirren as Prospero! Hard to judge from a trailer but it looks like it could be an exiting and interesting film.

No problem, I grew up near Stratford, most people who live there are pretty nonplussed by his work, but it sure does bring in the tourists. Radio 4 (BBC) suckered me on the 1st April; they said a locket had been found at the house which proved he was actually French! I believed it, but it was an April Fool, D'oh!

I'm not all that familiar with Shakespeare, but I'm hoping to learn more.
