The subject was William Shakespeare and anything that inspired you from his life, his works or his many famous quotations. The closing date was 23rd April 2014. For the avoidance of doubt, my choice of closing date was always intended to be a celebration of the 450th anniversary of his birth on or around 23rd April 1564.
Thank you for the entries.
Janus was his dependable self, standing like a greyhound ‘in the slips, straining upon the start.’ (Henry V Act III Scene 1) He set the game afoot with two floral photos bearing apposite quotations.

Enter LW – ‘There is much care and valour in this Welshman’ (ibid Act VI Scene 1). An evocative photo of the epitaph and the ‘Venus and Adonis’ quote works so well.
He was pursued by Araminta, our own Portia. With her Henley on Thames photo, she stands ‘as fair as any comer I have look’d on yet for my affection.’ (Merchant of Venice Act II Scene 1). I know it’s HoT because I passed through there in 2008 and saw the shop concerned.
‘I speak of Africa and golden joys.’ (Henry IV Part II Act V Scene III). As ever, Soutie gave full value. It is clear from more recent posts that he is not the greatest fan of the ‘Bored’ but he has, at least, been there and done ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
Thanks again for the entries. Screwing my ‘courage to the sticking place’ (The Scottish Play Act 1 Scene VII), I have a clear winner.
Well done, LW. Over to you.
