- Shakespeare is fun, although confusing sometime, haha. I waxed poetic on Shakespeare with my 'Li-Bai Badguy' devART photo with a verse from Antony and Cleopatra. See, everyone knows the first line but not many people know the full lines or where it comes from >w>
"Friends, romans, countrymen, lend me you ears!
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them; the good are oft interred with their bones.
So let it be with Caesar;
Noble Brutus has told you that Caesar was ambitious;
If so, it was a grievous fault and grievously did Caesar answer it."
AH I'm sure that's not from Antony and Cleopatra I'm pretty sure that's from Julius Caesar, (act 3 scene 2) and in my opinion one of Shakespeare's better plays. the Cassius soliloquy (act 1 scene 2) is awe inspiring. its interesting to note the structural forms used by Shakespeare in his plays as often it gives clues has to how to understand it. it's funny a lot of the interpretive techniques I was taught studying Shakespeare at school I'm applying at bible college for interpreting the bible. especially the understanding of literary form
