The Best, Bard-none

I've always loved Shakespeare. Or, at least, the idea of him. But, the truth is, I've always wanted to love Shakespeare and always wanted to get it. But, I can't even always understand actors on Acorn or Britbox. So, where does that leave me? Still, the rhythm and elegance of the sound always affects me. In fact, there've been some productions which transcend the timeframe of his work and the actors are so good that I need only listen to their intonation, cadence, and watch their body language to appreciate something of the intention. The Hollow Crown series on Acorn TV comes to mind. Maybe a couple of the Orson Welles films does it. Still, don't you just love the idea of Shakespeare? I still do. Forsooth.
