Antipholus of Syracuse. A trusty villain, sir, that very oft,
When I am dull with care and melancholy,
Lightens my humour with his merry jests.
Wow, those poems - V & A somewhat goofy but with a dark side, Lucrece a straight up tragedy - left this happy little blog reeling a little. It's been a little slow around here lately - so THIS is what happens when you have finals at school and try to move at the same time! - but with the delightful, farcical silliness of The Comedy of Errors we're back in the saddle again with something guaranteed to cheer us up. Mistaken identity! Twins! Reunions! Just as Antipholus' trusty servant Dromio "lightens [his master's] humour," Shakespeare's merry jests in this play lighten my spirits too!
