  Shakespeare
Posted by: DianaRing - 04-16-2020, 10:21 AM - Forum: Figures - No Replies

William Shakespeare was one of the greatest writers of all time.  His mind worked on so many different levels at once - writing poetically, metaphorically and historically to create some of mankind's greatest works of literature.

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Smile 1066 and All That

1066 was an important date in the history of England.  If it were not for the Battle of Hastings and the victory of Norman conquerors, perhaps today the form of English spoken in England, Australia and the Colonies  Big Grin would be quite different.
