They’re at it again!

In honor of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, Calmgrove and I are partnering again, on a close reading of Cymbeline. We’re each reading this play for the first time, each starting this project with no idea of what to expect. Aiming for the unknown is part of the fun.

For the next few days, we’ll post something to our blogs about each of the five acts of this late play (ca. 1609-1610), with a sixth closing post to go up on the anniversary of WS’s baptism, April 26th. Our conversations will continue in each other’s Comments sections, and we hope you will join us. You can find a full text of the play, thanks to MIT, here.

    My copy of the play is in a collected edition from 1904, each of the three out of four volumes costing me the princely sum of ten pence each (about 20 cents). Even a score of years ago, which is when I got them to replace the paperback which was rapidly ungluing itself, they were a bargain.
