Sonnet #113 

Since I left you, mine eye is in my mind;

And that which governs me to go about

Doth part his function and is partly blind,

Seems seeing, but effectually is out;

For it no form delivers to the heart

Of bird of flower, or shape, which it doth latch:

Of his quick objects hath the mind no part,

Nor his own vision holds what it doth catch:

For if it see the rudest or gentlest sight,

The most sweet favour or deformed'st creature,

The mountain or the sea, the day or night,

The crow or dove, it shapes them to your feature:

Incapable of more, replete with you,

My most true mind thus makes mine eye untrue.

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

Sonnet #112

Your love and pity doth the impression fill

Which vulgar scandal stamp'd upon my brow;

For what care I who calls me well or ill,

So you o'er-green my bad, my good allow?

You are my all the world, and I must strive

To know my shames and praises from your tongue:

None else to me, nor I to none alive,

That my steel'd sense or changes right or wrong.

In so profound abysm I throw all care

Of others' voices, that my adder's sense

To critic and to flatterer stopped are.

Mark how with my neglect I do dispense:

You are so strongly in my purpose bred

That all the world besides methinks are dead.

Sonnet # 14
CXIV.

Or whether doth my mind, being crown'd with you,
Drink up the monarch's plague, this flattery?
Or whether shall I say, mine eye saith true,
And that your love taught it this alchemy,
To make of monsters and things indigest
Such cherubins as your sweet self resemble,
Creating every bad a perfect best,
As fast as objects to his beams assemble?
O,'tis the first; 'tis flattery in my seeing,
And my great mind most kingly drinks it up:
Mine eye well knows what with his gust is 'greeing,
And to his palate doth prepare the cup:
If it be poison'd, 'tis the lesser sin
That mine eye loves it and doth first begin.

Today's Quote of the Day:

It makes sense to make a map of places where you can get eaten by bears, or where there's a bottomless pit, but when you get into making maps of your mind, you're basically wasting your time.

Today's allusion:

sour grapes

Word of the Day:

oxymoron (ok-see-MOR-on, -mor-) noun, plural oxymora or oxymorons

A figure of speech in which two contradictory terms appear together for emphasis, for example, "deafening silence". [From Greek oxymoron, from neuter of oxymoros (sharp dull), from oxys (sharp) + moros (dull). The word moron comes from the same root.]

Today's word in Visual Thesaurus: http://visualthesaurus.com/?w1=oxymoron

"A man for whom the term 'business ethics' is not just a polite oxymoron, Edward is shocked when he discovers the secret behind his father's genius with investments. It's a bit like the classic shell game, onlywith quarterly earning statements."  Karen D'Souza; The Family That Cheats Together; Mercury News (San Jose, California); Mar 25, 2005.

Sonnet # 130

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
     And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
     As any she belied with false compare.
