A Shakespearean Glance at the People and Issues of the Day.

Saturday, April 22, 2006


Dear Bardeye Viewers,

I will be taking a hiatus until this July for a very happy reason. Mrs. Bardseye is pregnant with a budding Shakespearean who is due in late August. Mrs. Bardseye is experiencing some morning sickness, and under the circumstances, it hardly seems fitting to be spinning odd conjectural webs across the centuries in order to recast Hamlet as Kerry, or Lady Macbeth as Hillary, or Bill Clinton as Falstaff, or Angelina Jolie as Cleopatra, when more monumental events are at hand right at home

But like MacArthur I shall return, and as a father no less.

In the meantime, there's over a hundred essays drawing hallucinatory Shakespearean parallels to the people and issues of today - just scroll down on the right and take your pick.

Best regards,

Jeremy (Bardseyeview).
