Shakespeare hoops...

We went through the Shakespeare hoops: iambic pentameter, sonnet form, imagery, figures of speech, cosmology, embodiment, breath and line-endings...and by the end of the week Juliet fell in love with Romeo and he waxed poetic in his adoration of her, Edmund laid bare the darkness of his soul within the sexiness of his body, Lear howled on the heath, Viola flirted with life's quiddity, Desdemona and Emilia struggled with the whole idea of men and Henry V (a gentle, charming mother of two) galvanized the room as she found her mid-resonators and belted the whole of 'Once more unto the breach.....' all the way to '...England, Harry and St. Geo-o-o-rge' at top volume. We were inspired! Gymnasium Shakespeare!
