4.5 Hag-Seed
Your profanity, thinks Felix, has oft been your whoreson hag-born progenitor of literacy. When I learned that Margaret Atwood had written a book for the Hogarth Shakespeare series, I was both thrilled and hesitant to pick it up. I love Atwood’s work. I love Shakespeare. However, there are elements ...
