“The rest is silence.” - Hamlet . . . Went to see the original Ophelia by John Everett Millais at Tate Britain today. It is by far my favourite painting... such intense serenity and heavy in symbolism that gives goosebumps to any shakespearean-lover viewer. #shakespeare #ophelia #hamlet #tatebritain #tatebritainmuseum #shakespearequotes #shakespearelover #therestissilence #williamshakespeare #johneverettmillais #london #londonbound #londontown #londonmuseum #freemuseum #freeadmission #londonweekends
"Love me or hate me, both are in my favour. If you love me, I'll always be in your heart...

Beauty, wit, high birth, vigour of bone, desert in service, love, friendship, charity, are subjects all to envious and calumniating time.

Starting the weekend off with this quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet! Thanks @marziyahashmani for the awesome quote suggestion!! . If you swipey swipe 👉🏻 you’ll see a time lapse process video that goes through ALL of the hard copy drafts that I made for this piece. SPOILER ALERT: it’s a lot! I did a total of 9 (!) versions of this quote, and that’s NOT including the sketching I did on my iPad before hand!! . This just goes to show that if one thing doesn’t work out, just keep trying until it does! You might also notice that as the drafts progress, my pen control improves and my spacing gets more consistent. Even for someone who does pointed pen pretty much everyday it takes time for me to get back into the swing of things 👍🏻 DON’T GIVE UP!! . . #shakespearean #hamletquote #shakespearequotes #shakespeareplays #modernlettering #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy #dontgiveup #practicemakesprogress #keepgoing #getbackup
Act 2, Scene 1: Act Two is when the fairies come to play. Oberon is annoyed that his wife Titania won’t give him her new pet -- a human boy. Oberon plots to enchant her so that she falls in love with the first thing she sees, hoping to distract her so he can take the child. After planning his mischief, he overhears Demetrius and Helena arguing in the forest. Helena pines after Demetrius, but Demetrius wants nothing to do with her. Oberon tasks his trusty henchman Puck with using the same potion to bewitch Demetrius so that he and Helena can be happy together. 🧚‍♂️ 💗 This is where we start seeing some problematic areas when you look at the play through a modern lens: the fairies have a little boy as a pet/slave, a husband bewitches his wife so that he can get his way, and female desire is looked upon with disgust. Instagram really isn’t a place to hold a class discussion, so I’ll just leave you with the questions I would ask my kids: What do you think about these power and gender issues? Do we still see relationships like this today? Why? What do you think it means when the “classics” that make up our culture show such relationships? Discuss. . . . . #shakespeare #shakespearequotes #love #williamshakespeare #amidsummernightsdream #midsummer #summersolstice #reading #bookstagram #bookquotes #bookish #readersofinstagram #booklover #bookworm #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy #dippen #dippencalligraphy #pointedpen #pointedpencalligraphy #handwriting #cursive #handwritten #teachersofinstagram

Act 1, Scene 2: A subplot in this play is a play within the play, put on by a group of handimen, led by an idiot who thinks he’s clever. In Act 1, Scene 2, the men organize to put on “The most lamentable comedy and most cruel death of Pyramus and Thisbe” for Theseus and Hippolyta’s wedding. What says wedding more than “cruel death”? #redwedding ? #toosoon ? 😁 I usually advise my SWHE--Students Who Hate English--to read Sparknotes’ No Fear script when we read Shakespeare. But scenes like this one need to be read in the original text… it’s full of puns and jokes that only make sense if you read it in Shakespeare’s words. Otherwise, you’ll get this translation of today’s quote that totally loses Bottom’s pompousness: “We’ll be there, and there we’ll rehearse courageously and wonderfully, truly obscenely. Work hard, know your lines. Goodbye.” 😑 This is just Part 3 of a 10-part series on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream! Schools have been getting so practical about what we teach in English class lately that I’m not getting many opportunities to do what I love: talk about literature! I disagree with those who argue that the study of fiction is frivolous, or that a modern society has no place for older works. On the contrary, in our era of overinflated films and sequels ad nauseam, I think we're actually starving for that magic that made the classics last so long. I mean, just look at the success of A Fault in Our Stars (title taken from Julius Caesar) and Westworld (tagline courtesy of Romeo and Juliet) and Breaking Bad (Macbeth is now a teacher making meth). Nah, I think Shakespeare’s still alive. . . . . #shakespeare #shakespearequotes #comedy #williamshakespeare #amidsummernightsdream #midsummer #summersolstice #summer #reading #bookstagram #bookquotes #bookish #readersofinstagram #booklover #bookworm #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy #dippen #dippencalligraphy #handwriting #cursive #handwritten #teachersofinstagram #elateacher #englishlit #englishteacher

Act 1, Scene 1: Midsummer is a play about how foolish we act when love’s involved, and sometimes the comedy comes from the characters’ completely overdramatic actions. In the first scene, we have a classic dilemma: Hermia loves Lysander, but her father does not approve. He wants her to marry Demetrius instead--or else. Athenian law states that if Hermia does not accept her father’s choice, she can either die or “abjure forever the society of men.” 💀 Hermia and Lysander think the only way they can be together is by eloping, and they plan on meeting in the forest to run away together. When Helena hears of their plan, she runs to tell Demetrius… because telling your crush how to get his crush is totally the way to go. This feels like a 90s teen movie already. 💕 In honor of the summer solstice, I’m doing my Insta-notes version of the play. For the next week, I’ll letter one quotable quote from each scene + give a brief summary of that scene. 🧚‍♂️ I’ve wanted to do a series of classic works for a while now… not just because I love literature and sharing it, but because I’m not getting a chance to do that much anymore as an English teacher. There’s so much pressure to teach practical, work-related texts and writing skills that, with each passing school year, I get fewer opportunities to play with literature. I’m passionate about making the hard stuff in English class more accessible--and that includes the things that schools think aren’t very useful today, like Shakespeare and poetry. My Instagram gives me an outlet for that. Because I believe there's still a place for fiction and poetry and the art of writing in our modern world.

“And though she be but little, she is fierce”. This super cool toddler tee from @sweetpeaandco (also available in a onesie) just arrived and isn’t it the best?! The quote is from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Act 3, Scene 2, page 13) and we couldn’t love it more.

This is one of those Shakespearean plays with subplots and love triangles. Or, as my students like to say for this play, a love quadrilateral. Our main characters are four young lovers: Hermia and Lysander love each other, but her dad wants her to marry Demetrius. Demetrius is chasing Hermia, but he has history with Helena, who still wants to be with him. Off to the side are the bickering fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, and the engaged human rulers, Theseus and Hippolyta. If there wasn't a graphic, it would be hard to keep all those fantastical names straight! Oh, and those dotted lines are for a little magical interference .... 💗 🌌 I've wanted to do a lettering series on classic works for a while now, and what better opportunity than starting with this super short Shakespearean play around the summer solstice!? Over the next week, I'll letter one quote from each scene + give a quick summary of that scene. Come by for a flash review of this ridiculous summer play! . . . . . #shakespearequotes #shakespeare #amidsummernightsdream #williamshakespeare #bookstagram #booklover #lettering #handlettering #moderncalligraphy #calligraphy #handwriting #cursive #bookworm #bookish #studygram #englishlit #englishteacher #readersofinstagram
Love people for exactly who they are ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 [The most enduring message of all Shakespeare’s sonnets💫] . . . Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove. O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken; It is the star to every wand'ring bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken. Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come; Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom. If this be error and upon me prov'd, I never writ, nor no man ever lov'd.
Il 23 Aprile è un giorno importante per noi lettori, perché è la giornata mondiale del libro ma anche l'anniversario della nascita e della morte di William Shakespeare ❤ "Le gioie violente hanno violenta fine, e muoiono nel loro trionfo, come il fuoco e la polvere da sparo, che si distruggono al primo bacio. Il più squisito miele diviene stucchevole per la sua stessa dolcezza, e basta assaggiarlo per levarsene la voglia. Perciò ama moderatamente: l'amore che dura fa così."
