Manny, thanks for this, in particular for your two selections, blank verse at once soaring & searing. I'd add, though, that the poetry & irony in this play can thwack you between the eyes in small doses, as well. Case in point: "Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows." (If you like, you could check my 5-star, here)

Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.
I'd forgotten that came from The Tempest! Yes, another great quote.

That is a good stage direction, but what about "Exit: pursued by a bear" ?? Clearly the best (not that I'm opinionated about this important subject or anything. :))

Well, that's my #2. I just happen to like chess and romance more than bears...

Well, I can understand that. Bears ARE godless killing machines:

LOL, my favorite part in this play was precisely when Prospero found Ferdinand and Miranda playing Chess.
