Shakespeare Was Here

*

Sharing the Bard’s Birthday has it’s ups and downs, travails and what-nots. Knowing that you will always walk in the shadows of the great poet and playwright is a daunting thing, but The Dude abides. He takes it as a ‘cosmic dare’, to use the parlance of our times.

The Dude had been working on “Hamlet II” for quite awhile when he was ‘totally taken aback’ by the release of “Hamlet 2” in 2008. No worries though, I remain confident in the fact that my “Hamlet II” will ‘stand on it’s own’ due to the Roman Numeral designation and what not.

Slick Willy stands alone as the pre-eminent English language master of modern poetry, to the consternation and indignation of the elites, who have tried to claim him as their own. Like the Bard, The Dude is a man of the people who exposes the ‘behind the scenes’ nefariousness of ‘the powers that be’ who try and control the paradigms of the geo-political scene.

Shakespeare’s works are a template which allows you to see the ‘man behind the curtain,’ who orchestrates this obtuse obfuscation of  the true beauty and nature of humanity/human-unity.

There are still some things we can learn from ‘dead white dudes.’ Lots of ins and outs.

This above all: to thine own self be true. – (Hamlet Act I, Scene III)

Though this be madness, yet there is method in ‘t. – (Hamlet Act II, Scene II).

The play ‘s the thing wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the king. – (Hamlet Act II, Scene II).

What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals! – (Hamlet Act II, Sc. II).
