"Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken..."

:D I love that one... Especially the way that Marianne reads it. :)

My favorite characters are Horatio from Hamlet. (One of my heroes)

and Portia from The Merchant of Venice. :)

I just did my first Shakespeare themed post and linked to your blog here. The link you gave under #5 is to an Elvis necklace so I wasn't sure if that was right or not. Let me know if I need to change the link.

My favorite lines from Shakespeare are... "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown." from Henry the fifth. I think it expresses well that earthly things are not going to satisfy us.

I absolutely LOVE Shakespeare. I had read all of his plays by the time I was 16 and am savoring all of the sonnets. Trying to pick a Fovorite Shakespeare play is very hard. I suppose I would have to say The Taming Of the Shrew. I love Katherine's speech at the very end.

I'll write a Shakespeareish themed post tomorrow or so, as I have the day off, and intend to finish reading Leithart on Hamlet. We never did get around to that part. *sigh*

Mentioned the giveaway... http://sierramackenzie.blogspot.com/2011/03/shakespeare-week-day-two.html

His Handmaiden said...

My favorite character would have to be Portia from Merchant of Venice, Helena from A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Goneril from King Lear. They're all hard parts to play, and very interesting characters in themselves!

"Nothing can be amiss when simpleness and duty tender it," from Midsummer Night's Dream has to be one of my favorites!

His Handmaiden said...

Post linked back..

From Ellacuz, either the Love of Life necklace or the All the World's a Stage necklace.

My favorite Shakespeare line is, "Parting is such a sweet sorrow."

Because I have often thought this is true, goodbyes will always be bittersweet.
