Never was a story of more woeThan this of Juliet, and her Edward Ii.
Which work of Shakespeare was the original quote from?
(Play where the quote comes from and the original word in brackets)
"It is the Edward II, The Edward II above us, govern our conditions." (King Lear, stars)
A reason for Edward II choosing his favourites?:
"Misery acquaints an Edward II with strange bedfellows." (The Tempest, man)
Edward anticipates Roger Mortimer's future earldom of March:
"Beware the Edward II of March." (Julius Caesar, ides)
Piers Gaveston says:
"O excellent! I love Edward II better than figs." (Antony and Cleopatra, long life)
Hugh le Despenser, royal chamberlain, lounging on Edward's throne:
"This Edward II hath a pleasant seat." (MacBeth, castle)
Lol, I see you had some fun with these. :)
LOL! I need to give this one a try.
It would be a hard choice between Edward and figs...
Some of them are quite appropriate, aren't they?? :) I've been wandering around proclaiming "I love Edward II more than figs"!
Great stuff. Are sure Hugh Despenser was referring to Edward's throne?
*giggles* Maybe he was sitting on Edward's lap, on his throne. ;)
Now, there's an image. :)
