Shakespeare


"King Lear", Cascais Experimental Theater
 
This is my contribution to the City Daily Photo theme day:
National Days (3): Saint George's Day (England)
 
I could have chosen a photo of the São Jorge (St. George) Castle in Lisbon to post today, but instead I decided to make a tribute to England itself and what better than William?

I have to admit never caring much about his writings. Or seen any play. Oh, and in my area George is known as Sankt Göran.

Was there just one St. George?

Very cool shot, juxtaposing the poster with the kingly figure!

Dina said...

An interesting picture indeed. And did Shakespeare not die on St. George's Day, 23 April 1616?

Interesting juxtaposition!

Ah, my favourite bard although at my time of life I no longer appreciate a tragedy. Seen too many in real life.

I am developing a greater appreciation for Shakespeare through so much media attention being paid to him and his writings (and I need the explanations!)

Joan Elizabeth said...

Well done. I must confess the theme had me puzzled about how to be true my blog and yet make a post so I just gave up. Should have been more creative like you have been.

Beautiful! I love your interpretation of the theme!
