Something special for the valentines day
For those who read my blog frequently, you guys know my feelings towards Shakespeare; for those who don't, I never liked him.The reasons are that his language is archaic and I was forced to read him. If you are forced to read somebody whose language is archaic and where you need lots of translation just to understand him, its not likely one thinks of him as genius. Despite my personal feelings, Shakespeare's plays are famous, or at least the phrases are. Since I'm not willing to subject myself to Shakespeare torture, I will not cover his plays or anything of the kind. Instead, for the February, I will use these terms to mention fourteen stories, seven happy and seven unhappy that might have elements of that famous play. I can't cover everything, so I hope that you will enjoy my choices. To begin with, I will start with a Roman myth of Cupid and Psyche.
