Ladies and Gentlemen, that was a lot of Shakespeare during the last weeks.. maybe even a bit too much for my taste.
I have spent Christmas reading a lot of plays in which the protagonists in large part loose their minds and almost everyone dies in the end and I am happy to finally move on to reading something less depressing. Therefore I don’t want to go into detail here, so I give you the abbreviated version:
Macbeth (or should I say The Scottish Play) – great!
Julius Caesar – not so great..
Romeo and Juliet – quite good
Hamlet – I expected more
Othello – interesting and exciting
King Lear – that was a tough one
