Here lies the second installment of the one and only commonplace blog. Unless, of course, there is another commonplace blog.
Hold on to your seats, folks, you’re in for a wild second round. Unless, of course, this is the first time you are viewing this site, in which case you have not read the premier section. If this be so, I would suggest starting in the middle, down there with the entry entitled “Prologue.” Yes, the order of the blog is a mess. Please bear with me and, as previously stated in said “Prologue,” you can look through this in any dang order you want.
This, the subsequent component of the blog, deals with some real issues. Ghosts, children’s movies, cross-dressing, and magical islands. These are but a few of the topics we will discuss on this follow-up journey through the Bard’s mind.
I present you with four more plays in this, the division of the blog that proceeds the first. Between Hamlet and King Lear, there is enough tragedy to send one over the cuckoo’s nest. Therefore I do not dwell on such sadness for extended periods of time, but still deal with some other substantial issues in those plays.
Twelfth Night and The Tempest are also included in this, the ensuing half of the Shakespearean blog. These two plays should bring more lightheartedness to those that might get bogged down in the messiness of tragedy.
Please enjoy your perusal of part deux of this blog, as thus, being the sequel to the first.
