Thank you for joining and commenting in godless in the garden. I hope that you continue to share your observations and thoughts and experiences.
Like you, for me the garden is a connection to nature and the earth, and it keeps me more or less sane.
Well, Macbeth is my favorite one, but it is very pregnant with meaning. But you can still read and enjoy it as an action play even if some of the meaning is lost on you (or any reader). Titus Andronicus would be a good one. It was an early play, perhaps one of the first. It has some beautiful language in it, but it is not as philosophically deep as Macbeth (at least not to my understanding). That would be a good one to start with, I think. Then you can watch Titus afterwards, starring Anthony Hopkins. Or watch it first if you think it would help.
I love the library. I always call myself a library dork! I get so excited every time I go because there is so much to discover, learn, and explore. I am like a kid in a candy store. One day I may watch a DVD about Queen Hatshepsut, then one on global warming, then one on Shakespeare, or get a book on Greek poetry or animal rights. If only I had more time!
