Not my favourite Shakespeare, but enjoyable nonetheless. Works well in the class room too.

Taught this a few times in the IB in Asia and in Queensland. Fantastic play! Students really like it and it gives them a lot of things to work with. Excellent!

William Shakespeare
“By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.”
William Shakespeare, Macbeth

David   Hunt
“The first colonial teenagers rejected their parents’ values, as teenagers have done ever since Cain and Abel decided to get away from all that hippy nature stuff. They were sober, industrious and, if truth be told, not much fun. They laboured uncomplainingly in the sun, exercised in the fresh air, swam in the sea and were, on average, six inches taller than the malnourished British stock from which they had sprung. Within a single generation, the Artful Dodger had transformed into Chesty Bond.”
David Hunt, Girt

“Climate change denialists are therefore engaged in intergenerational economic warfare on their own societies. They won’t witness the worst aspects of climate change—luckily for them they’ll die before they occur. But their children and grandchildren will be affected by them. The refusal of older people, and particularly old white males, to accept the need for climate action shifts costs that they themselves are causing onto their descendants, all of whom will pay higher prices, higher taxes and higher insurance premiums and enjoy poorer health, lower economic growth and fewer jobs because of climate change. Denialists are a form of economic parasite preying on their own offspring, running up a bill they’ll die before having to pay. And every year of delay increases the costs that future generations will have to bear.”
Bernard Keane, A Short History of Stupid: The Decline of Reason and Why Public Debate Makes Us Want to Scream

“Today's Republican Party...is an insurgent outlier. It has become ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence, and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition, all but declaring war on the government. The Democratic Party, while no paragon of civic virtue, is more ideologically centered and diverse, protective of the government's role as it developed over the course of the last century, open to incremental changes in policy fashioned through bargaining with the Republicans, and less disposed to or adept at take-no-prisoners conflict between the parties. This asymmetry between the parties, which journalists and scholars often brush aside or whitewash in a quest for "balance," constitutes a huge obstacle to effective governance.”
Thomas E. Mann, It's Even Worse Than It Looks: How the American Constitutional System Collided With the Politics of Extremism

John Connolly
“You want to know what’s on the other side?’
Walsh eyed the detective carefully, as if gauging the seriousness of the question.
‘Is it seventy-two virgins, like the Muslims believe?’
‘That’s the good news. The bad news is that they’re all guys. It’s like being at a boarding school.’
‘I knew there had to be a catch.”
John Connolly, A Song of Shadows
