GUEST If you don't like ballads...... (252* d) RE: If you don't like ballads...... 07 May 19


I believe the red hot poker is in Shakespeare too, by the way. The interesting question is how Shakespeare came to be so venerated, Christopher Marlow is thought by many to have been a better writer; how to explain the Shakespeare phenomenon. Interestingly, Shakespeare's plays include allusions to popular culture, with the rude mechanicals' play in Midsummer Night being an example. Bottom says he will get his friend to write a ballad about his experiences.

It shall be called “Bottom’s Dream” because it hath no bottom. And I will sing it in the latter end of a play before the duke. Peradventure, to make it the more gracious, I shall sing it at her death.
