Brush Up Your Shakespeare

Maybe it's just the winter of our discontent (thanks again to my wonderful husband for walking me down the hill today - only 15 minutes late to work!), but lots of folks on my blogroll have been talking about Shakespeare lately. Some good posts to check out are this one from Peter David talking about how he, Kath and Ariel are reading through The Tempest (movies are following suit; Forbidden Planet was on again the other day); "And I, like a woman...," or Shakespeare's Shadow from PinkDreamPoppies at Alas, A Blog (great comment section too, as ever); and two from Shakespeare wonk Lis Riba about a sequel to Taming of the Shrew (and, you guessed it, Kiss Me Kate was on TMC last night as well, as part of their Ann Miller tribute) and a follow-up wherein she passes along the link to the full text of this sequel. And speaking of full text, here's your handy online guide to Shakespeare's complete works.
