Romeo and Juliet

by William Shakespeare

Man, people are too dumb to read shakespeare.

1) Shakespeare did indeed copy R&J from other texts. So did a lot of other writers before and after him (Bram Stoker off the top of my head). Deal with it.

2) It's not 'Old English', Beowulf or Chaucer are old english. This is middle english. If you can't read it, it's probably because of the literary/historical allusions, not because it isn't 'really' English.

Anyway it's spawned a dozen shitty movies but it's still one of the bard's best.

Chamber Music

by James Joyce

Joyce was a good writer and all, but his poetry was awful.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
