Talk Like Shakespeare
Dorito is ready to start "Antony & Cleopatra" for Sophomore Literature. I know he will want to read it aloud in parts/characters, like we did for "Julius Caesar" this month. He was Caesar and Brutus, while I was Cassius and Antony. (Does Candise sound like Cassius? I hope not!) The Bard's birthday was April 26 (this week!) and I just had to post a bit. I adolize him for a couple of extra reasons: he had twins (named Judith and Hamnet, in case you are wondering) and there is a great likelihood that he was Catholic during the time when that was a dirty word in Britain. Joseph Pearce wrote a book investigating the possibility of Shakespeare's Catholicity, and Pearce is speaking at the KC Homeschool Conference in June! Can't wait!
