Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Still slowly making my way through the complete works. I'd read this a few times for school, but not recently. Happy to have re-read it.

Richard II by William Shakespeare

I enjoyed reading this one. I'm still thinking about the reasons for Richard's surrender and resignation.

Patience by Daniel Clowes

Excellent time travel story. I like how Clowes managed the typical paradoxes inherent in these things. As an object, the book is also beautiful.

I wasn't in the mood for it, the wordplay and whatnot--hard to get into.

The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare

Fun and light--I liked how it grounded the life-and-death stakes for the father at the start and end of the story.

King Edward III by William Shakespeare
Rate this book
Clear rating
A little dull after Richard III--the heroes and villains weren't as compelling. I suppose it's mainly about duty and honour, the heroes doing what they considered to be the right thing at the time, and the villains...not.

Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare

Clear rating
Epic sexy tragedy--after a first read, where I wasn't exactly sure what had happened in the poem, it helped to read along again with an audiobook performance of it, and then to watch a short film adaptation.

“But he instantly saw that it would be impossible for him to escape from the regiment. It inclosed him. And there were iron laws of tradition and law on four sides. He was in a moving box. As he perceived this fact it occurred to him that he had never wished to come to the war. He had not enlisted of his free will. He had been dragged by the merciless government. And now they were taking him out to be slaughtered.”
Oliver Ho, The Red Badge of Courage
