READING: the long introduction to the Arden Shakespeare Complete Works. Watching THE WARS OF THE ROSES last month got me thinking about Shakespeare again for the first time in a while. I ended up watching CORIOLANUS, Branagh’s HENRY V and McKellen’s RICHARD III, and THE HOLLOW CROWN, and I’m having some thoughts about the Histories, which I never read. Many of my generation have an allergy to Shakespeare due to school, but I was of the lucky cohort who got to do MACBETH at school and HAMLET at A-level, and was only forced to read one of the comedies (AS YOU LIKE IT). But I never revisited him much, and this winter I think I might.
