'Shakespeare Notes. All's Well that Ends Well. The First Lord is worth attending to.... Hamlet: ...But I could write a thousand pages about Hamlet...Miranda and Juliet: To say that Juliet and Miranda might very well be one seems to me to show a lamentable want of perception... Romeo and Juliet ...When the old nurse cackles of leaning against the dove-house wall it's just as though a beam of sunlight struck through the curtains and discovered her sitting there in the warmth with a tiny staggerer...Twelfth Night...Oh, doesn't that reveal the thoughts of all those strange creatures who attend upon the lives of others! Antony and Cleopatra...Marvellous words!...A creature like Cleopatra always expects to be paid for things.'
