Reading progress update: I've read 1187 out of 1344 pages.
The Complete Works (Oxford Shakespeare) - William Shakespeare,John Jowett,Gary Taylor

The Folio edition of Lear represents the results of adaptation from the Quarto version, in response to performance, according to the editors, and is printed separately and in full. Overall it is shorter and the cuts had the effect of making Lear's descent into madness less convincing to me.

 

Cymbeline, next. Beginning to feel finishing line fever but there's still three whole plays to go!

The Bad Seed: A Vintage Movie Classic - William March

I just found this on a blog post about the movie and it made me giggle:

 

"If your daughter plays the piano, tap dances, and loses a penmanship competition ... lock her away, now."

 

Especially since my thoughts went along these lines while reading the novel: What would I do if I would be the mother of a child like Rhoda?

... I would lock her in the basement. Chilling child, indeed.

"It was mine," said Rhoda stubbornly. "The medal was mine." Her round, light-brown eyes were stretched and unyielding. "It was mine," she said. "The medal was mine."

 

Guys, meet Rhoda:

Btw, she didn´t win the medal for best penmanship.
