An Intense Thirty Pages Apiece

I might be on a Shakespeare kick right now.  These are both plays I read about fifteen years ago.  I certainly enjoyed them then.  I had great high school English teachers.  But with this reading, I'm finding a rich delight that I don't remember from before.  The language is exciting.  It makes my core zing.  And then there are the people.  With just letters, Shakespeare shades in character, conflicting motivations, and deep emotion.  He puts his finger on personhood and I forget that what I'm actually doing is looking at paper and ink.
