BTW I only have like 2 irl weighs to deal with now, and come Friday like only 1 :3
I am like 'high on life' *biach* :D
I think I am reading in further than I should (or further than I should for English class XD) be about the Lord's sexuality, and his involvment with his Page >.>
[Introduction] Scene#01, Lines 105-112:
Lord: "Sirrah, go you to Barthol'mew my page And see him dressed in all suits like a lady. That done conduct him to the drunkard's chamber And call him "madam"; do him obeisance. Tell him from me---as he will win my love---*** He bear himself in honorable action Such as he hath observed in nobel ladies Unto their lords, by them accomplished.****"
***If he wishes to ****as ladies do to their lords
The Page then dresses-up like a lady, and pretends to be Sly's wife. He also says that he would bed with him, but the doctor fears that he would go back into maddness...but the way he said it made me giggle sooooo bad.
I still NEED ice-cream ;-; (I might just have to break-down and buy some later this week >.>)
William Shakespeare, despite how intellectualized he's become, was still writing popular entertainment.
And see him dressed in all suits like a lady.
Drag is apparently nothing new. Come to think of it, even Achilleus dressed as a female at one point.
Perhaps an even better example of a play that tends to be thought of as only interesting to intellectuals today, but in reality is full of bathroom humour, sex jokes, and crossdressing to amuse the people of the time, is Aristophanes' Ecclesiazusae.
