  2. Quite profound (maybe) on St George's Day

  3. A very special day indeed. In Catalunya today we celebrate the day of the book, both in honor of Cervantes and Shakespeare.

  4. And the English and Catalans also share Saint George.

    Do you think that Hamlet was suffering from early male pattern baldness,hence the hat? This might explain a lot of his existential angst, don't you think? Forget something rotten in the state of Denmark, methinks he was frightened that Ophelia would laugh at his shining pate.Obviously this is a subject dear to Will's heart, as we know. Inky you may have unraveled the mystery of the entire play. Thanks!

  6. Tis also the Bard's day of death. My favourite passage from all Shakespeare's masterpieces is his longest tirade every written (in King Lear): "A knave, a rascal, an eater of broken meats, a base, proud, shallow, beggarly, three-suited... action-taking knave, a whoreson, glass-gazing, super-seviceable finical rogue, one-trunk-inheriting slave, one that woudst be a bawd in way of good service, and art nothing but the composition of a knave, beggar, coward, pandar, and the son and heir on a mongrel bitch..."
