Don't usually see Shakespeare discussed on /lit

O, full of scorpions is my mind
Robert Burton > William Shakespeare
Stoop, then, and wash. How many ages hence
Shall this our lofty scene be acted o’er,
In states unborn and accents yet unknown!
>Will all great Neptune's ocean wash this blood clean from my hand? No this my hand will rather the multitudinous seas incardine, making the green one red.
>All that is won and lost. Give me a kiss; even this repays me.
>No, 'tis not so deep as a well, nor so wide as a church door, but 'tis enough, 'twill serve. ask for me to-morrow, and you shall find me a grave man.

Jesus Christ. You STEM faggots never fucking leave, do you?
Exit, pursued by a bear
>Hell is empty and all the devils are here.
>The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
>First thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.

>the fuck is this anon talking about, I saw the movie in a theater two weeks ago

That's weird. Well, if you want some Macbeth right now, I warmly recommend the Polanski version.

seen it a few times, I wanna see the new movie but it's not in any theater where I live
>, I saw the movie in a theater two weeks ago

is the cast mostly european or did they diversify it with minorities?
My favorite quotes are the ones where some ass clown tries to attribute Shakespeares entire body of work to a minority or woman.

But how is it
That this lives in thy mind? What seest thou else
In the dark backward and abysm of time?
Definitely one of my favorite lines from the trailer.

Movie trailer transcripts are literature.
Aaron. Madam, though Venus govern your desires,
Saturn is dominator over mine:
What signifies my deadly-standing eye, 765
My silence and my cloudy melancholy,
My fleece of woolly hair that now uncurls
Even as an adder when she doth unroll
To do some fatal execution?
No, madam, these are no venereal signs: 770
Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand,
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.
Hark Tamora, the empress of my soul,
Which never hopes more heaven than rests in thee,
This is the day of doom for Bassianus: 775
His Philomel must lose her tongue to-day,
Thy sons make pillage of her chastity
And wash their hands in Bassianus' blood.
Seest thou this letter? take it up, I pray thee,
And give the king this fatal plotted scroll. 780
Now question me no more; we are espied;
Here comes a parcel of our hopeful booty,
Which dreads not yet their lives' destruction.

Titus andronicus act two scene three
Movie premiered at cannes in like april, released in europe in like july, didn't come out in america until november. I had to drive 5 hours to see it in a tiny arthouse theater. Wtf.
Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul
Of the wide world dreaming on things to come,
Can yet the lease of my true love control,
Supposed as forfeit to a confined doom.
The mortal moon hath her eclipse endured,
And the sad augurs mock their own presage;
Incertainties now crown themselves assured,
And peace proclaims olives of endless age.
Now with the drops of this most balmy time,
My love looks fresh, and Death to me subscribes,
Since, spite of him, I'll live in this poor rhyme,
While he insults o'er dull and speechless tribes:
And thou in this shalt find thy monument,
When tyrants' crests and tombs of brass are spent.
What's her name?
Nell, sir; but her name and three quarters, that's
an ell and three quarters, will not measure her from
hip to hip.
Then she bears some breadth?
No longer from head to foot than from hip to hip:
she is spherical, like a globe; I could find out
countries in her.
In what part of her body stands Ireland?
Marry, in her buttocks: I found it out by the bogs.
Where Scotland?
I found it by the barrenness; hard in the palm of the hand.
Where France?
In her forehead; armed and reverted, making war
against her heir.
Where England?
I looked for the chalky cliffs, but I could find no
whiteness in them; but I guess it stood in her chin,
by the salt rheum that ran between France and it.
Where Spain?
Faith, I saw it not; but I felt it hot in her breath.
Where America, the Indies?
Oh, sir, upon her nose all o'er embellished with
rubies, carbuncles, sapphires, declining their rich
aspect to the hot breath of Spain; who sent whole
armadoes of caracks to be ballast at her nose.
Where stood Belgia, the Netherlands?
Oh, sir, I did not look so low.

jesus anon what would shakespeare say?
Come, Antony, and young Octavius, come,
Revenge yourselves alone on Cassius,
For Cassius is aweary of the world;
Hated by one he loves; braved by his brother;
Cheque'd like a bondman; all his faults observed,
Set in a note-book, learn'd, and conn'd by rote,
To cast into my teeth. O, I could weep
My spirit from mine eyes! There is my dagger,
And here my naked breast; within, a heart
Dearer than Plutus' mine, richer than gold:
If that thou be'st a Roman, take it forth;
I, that denied thee gold, will give my heart:
Strike, as thou didst at Caesar; for, I know,
When thou didst hate him worst, thou lovedst him better
Than ever thou lovedst Cassius.

Saw this Macbeth in Summer, was fantastic, I recommend waiting for a high res blu-ray release rather than letting gorgeous cinematography and visual style go to waste in some shitty camera torrent.
Even if you're a native speaker there's still a bunch of stuff you need to look up
All of Antony's speech in Julius Caesar desu.

"Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.
I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them;
The good is oft interrèd with their bones.
So let it be with Caesar. The noble Brutus
Hath told you Caesar was ambitious.
If it were so, it was a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answered it.
Here, under leave of Brutus and the rest—
For Brutus is an honorable man;
So are they all, all honorable men—
Come I to speak in Caesar’s funeral.
He was my friend, faithful and just to me.
But Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honorable man.
He hath brought many captives home to Rome
Whose ransoms did the general coffers fill. Did this in Caesar seem ambitious?
When that the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And Brutus is an honorable man.
You all did see that on the Lupercal
I thrice presented him a kingly crown,
Which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition?
Yet Brutus says he was ambitious,
And, sure, he is an honorable man.
I speak not to disprove what Brutus spoke,
But here I am to speak what I do know.
You all did love him once, not without cause.
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him?
O judgment! Thou art fled to brutish beasts,
And men have lost their reason. Bear with me.
My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar,
And I must pause till it come back to me."
>"Woo her, Wed her, Bed her and then rid house of her!"
The Taming of the Shrew (Act I, I, 141)

I really enjoyed the new Macbeth. Fassbender really sold it for me. Also, because I'm edgy as fuck: 'It is a tale told by an idiot, fill of sound and fury, signifying nothing'.

Full thing:

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
All of Portia's speech on mercy.
A whiff of her fart
Twas like a wharf to her heart
>A horse! A horse! A kingdom for my horse!
Still get goosebumps when I imagine Richard shouting this out
>jesus anon what would shakespeare say?
He would probably be amazed movies exist.
Favorite Thomas Middleton quotes, you mean.
Now is the winter of our discontent
>Can't into stylometrics.
reason not the need! our basest beggars are in the poorest thing superfluous. allow not nature more than nature needs, man’s life’s as cheap as beast's


The breaking of so great a thing should make
A greater crack: the round world
Should have shook lions into civil streets,
And citizens to their dens: the death of Antony
Is not a single doom; in the name lay
A moiety of the world.
>Here comes a pair of very strange beasts, which in all tongues are called fools.
Made glorious summer by this sun of York;
And all the clouds that lour'd upon our house In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.
digression but recently after not reading shakespeare since high school i picked macbeth up again and after maybe 20 pages had a boner at full mast for this absolutely dank-beyond-dank prose. the end
"I never existed"
Now are our brows bound with victorious wreaths; Our bruised arms hung up for monuments;
Our stern alarums changed to merry meetings, Our dreadful marches to delightful measures.
Grim-visaged war hath smooth'd his wrinkled front;
And now, instead of mounting barded steeds
To fright the souls of fearful adversaries,
He capers nimbly in a lady's chamber
To the lascivious pleasing of a lute.
But I, that am not shaped for sportive tricks,
Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass;
I, that am rudely stamp'd, and want love's majesty
To strut before a wanton ambling nymph;
I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion,
Cheated of feature by dissembling nature,
Deformed, unfinish'd, sent before my time
Into this breathing world, scarce half made up,
There is special providence in
the fall of a sparrow. If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to
come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come—the
readiness is all. Since no man, of aught he leaves, knows what is't
to leave betimes, let be.

> I have of late—but wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises, and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air—look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire—why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors. What a piece of work is a 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. And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me. No, nor woman neither

>Would he were fatter! But I fear him not.
Yet if my name were liable to fear,
I do not know the man I should avoid
So soon as that spare Cassius. He reads much.
He is a great observer, and he looks
Quite through the deeds of men. He loves no plays,
As thou dost, Antony. He hears no music.
Seldom he smiles, and smiles in such a sort
As if he mocked himself and scorned his spirit
That could be moved to smile at anything.
Such men as he be never at heart’s ease
Whiles they behold a greater than themselves,
And therefore are they very dangerous.
I rather tell thee what is to be feared
Than what I fear, for always I am Caesar.
I liked his delivery of
"So foul and fair a day I have not seen."
Really sympathised with him there
