Book Excerpt:

[He drops to his knee, amid praise, before the throne.]

SAUL [Darkening]

Forego this praise and stand Away from him; ’tis overmuch. [To David] Why have You dallied and delayed?


My lord, delayed?


Do not smile wonder, mocking!


Why, my lord, I do not mock. Only the birds have wings. Yet on the vales behind me I have left Haste and a swirling wonderment of air, And in the torrent’s troubled vein amaze, So swift I hurried hither at your urgence Out of the fields and folding the far sheep!

Don't you kind of hate how we've entered the decadent phase of Goodreads wherein perhaps fifty percent (or more) of the reviews written by non-teenagers and non-romancers are now naked and unabashed in their variously effective attempts at being arch, wry, meta, parodic, confessional, and/or snarky?

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

The book presents the story of a nobleman who entered the path of evil. Initially, he was still undecided. Nevertheless decided to murder the king. And thus, he fell into a vicious circle of crime, from which it is impossible to get out because "blood will have blood."

This play always holds a place in my heart and the top spot of most embarassing moments in my life.

عندما تتحرك الأشجار..و على يد رجل لم تلده امه هكذا سيتم قتلك يا ماكبث

عندما يتلاعب شكسبير بالألفاظ الي حدود تقنعني انني بلهاء حقا..لا اتقن الكتابة و لا حتى الكلام !!ا
الاخلاص و عدم الاخلاص ؛تظل ماكبث من افضل ما تم كتابته عن عواقبهما
