Shakespeare’s Deaths and Murders infographic, by Caitlin Griffin at Drown My Books.

This was sent to me this afternoon by my former English Lit. tutor. File under: classroom wall displays. 

I was always told that a Shakespearean tragedy basically boils down to “Everyone stab the person to your left.” This is a little more precise.

the winter’s tale tho

takemeinyourdream, sting-like-jelly, tamikaflynned, I guess whoever else /o/

I feel like whenever Megan wants to show me Shakespeare, we should have this pulled up so I don’t get mired down in confusion.

I just want this on a poster.

most classic novels are classics because they were written by old white men for other white men. so, like, don’t ever feel bad for not reading them

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

Oh no stand your ground for the homie right???? NO STAND YOUR GROUND FOR THE HOMIE RIGHT????!????!!!!

You walk into a dark room. You turn on the light. Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley begins to play. The music video is projected on all the walls. You begin to laugh. “Good prank, guys!” Nobody answers. The music goes on. You listen for the whole song. Then the music replays. You’ve had enough. You turn around to find the door has disappeared. You search for a way out. You never find it. The music never ends. You never die despite your mist desperate pleas. You’ve been rickrolled.

Let’s please stop this false competition about whether listening to a book counts the same as reading one the old-fashioned way on paper or the newfangled way on an electronic device. The more ways there are for people to read, the better.

Leigh Hallingby in a letter to the New York Times.
