"ALAS, POOR HAMLET!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

Sir, in my heart there was a kind of fighting,
That would not let me sleep: methought I lay
Worse than the mutines in the bilboes. Rashly,
And praised be rashness for it, let us know,
Our indiscretion sometimes serves us well,
When our deep plots do pall: and that should teach us
There's a divinity that shapes our ends,
Rough-hew them how we will,--

Act 5  Hamlet

 

Is that Conn playing Hamlet or is he Laertes?

Today's Quotes of the Day:

"Let me study so to know the thing I am forbid to know"

"I am 'a sort of'  haunted by the conviction that the divine William is the biggest and most successful fraud ever practiced on a patient world."                                                         - Henry James

"We are the Reasoning Race, and when we find a vague file of chipmunk tracks stringing through the dust of Stratford village, we know by our reasoning powers that Hercules has been along there.  I feel that our fetish is safe for three centuries yet."

Why is there a Shakespeare Authorship Question?

Until the modern schools of literary criticism took over, it was universally accepted that personal experience is the life-blood of fiction and an author’s works are – unavoidably – an expression of him or herself.  In other words, art grows out of life as naturally as plants grow from the soil.  As Samuel Butler wrote, “Every man’s work whether it be literature or music or pictures or architecture or anything else is always a portrait of himself, and the more he tries to conceal himself, the more clearly will his character appear.”  If this is true, it follows that an author’s life will illuminate his works, and vice-versa.

The Shakespeare authorship question exists because not only is there no correlation or kinship between the life of William Shakespeare of Stratford and the works ascribed to him, but the two directly contradict each other.  Dr. W.H. Furness, distinguished editor of the Variorum Shakespeare, wrote to Nathaniel Holmes in 1866, “I am one of the many who have never been able to bring the life of William Shakespeare and the plays of Shakespeare within planetary distance of each other.  Are there any two things in the world more incongruous?”  This incongruity is the crux: if the Shakespeare works do indeed belong to William of Stratford, why is there no relationship between the two?

It’s hardly surprising, then, that the biographies of Shakespeare that keep rolling off the presses fail as biographies, even if they succeed as engaging portraits of the age in general.  For all they can deliver is an uprooted Shakespeare, alienated from – and unnourished by – his works.  The creative core of the man is missing.  Abandoning their attempts to effect a marriage between the man and his art, Shakespeare scholars have long since retreated into arcane literary theories that remove the author from the equation altogether.  In so doing, they have left the field of Shakespeare studies wide open to amateurs and heretics – like you and me.

Let us make hay while the sun shines!         - Charles Beauclerk 2006

MEMORIZE A SONNET!

77 LOVE SONNETS BY GARRISON KEILLOR

From Garrison Keillor:

"When I was 16, Helen Fleischman assigned me to memorize Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 29, "When in disgrace with fortune and men's eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state" for English class, and fifty years later, that poem is still in my head. Algebra got washed away, and geometry and most of biology, but those lines about the redemptive power of love in the face of shame are still here behind my eyeballs, more permanent than my own teeth. The sonnet is a durable good. These 77 of mine include sonnets of praise, some erotic, some lamentations, some street sonnets and a 12-sonnet cycle of months. If anything here offends, I beg your pardon, I come in peace, I depart in gratitude."
