Nice to see the camaraderie, and Eric quoting King Lear!

I don't remember any trawlers or seagulls in King Lear when we read it for 'A' Level English Lit.....

Must be this then:   "As flies to wanton boys we are for the gods, they kill us for their sport."


Then he went on -


Soon the science will not only be able to slow down the ageing of the cells, soon the science will fix the cells to the state and so we will become eternal."Only accidents, crimes, wars, will still kill us but unfortunately, crimes, wars, will multiply.....


We did 'Midsommer Night's Dream' and 'Twelfth Night'
much more fun

I remember the first quote, now you come to mention it.


The other Shakespeare work we covered was Measure For Measure. All quite a while ago now, sadly!
