What an odd week. Almost no Shakespeare out there in the world. Well, not that I could see anyway. But quite a lot, closer to home.
From Davis and Frankforter’s The Shakespeare Name Dictionary:
- April, which will soon be upon us, comes from the Latin aperire, to open, and is mentioned in many of Shakespeare’s plays. It is also the month in which Shakespeare was born and died, although the Dictionary doesn’t tell us that.
- Aquilon is the north wind. In Troilus and Cressida Ajax tells the trumpeter to blow like Aquilon to summon Hector to battle.
- Not a single one this week! What’s the world coming to?
Further this week:
- Finished reading aloud with Hal: Troilus and Cressida
- Started reading: analyses of same.
- Started writing: text about same.
