Dear me, 2013 have been a pretty bad year for me in the case of reading challenges and reading events. Like for the Let’s Read Plays event, I have only been able to read and review 5 plays out of the supposedly 12. Well, at least through this event I finally became acquainted with Shakespeare, along with some other playwrights. Reading plays is fun and I intend to squeeze more of them in my future reading lists.
So here are the plays I managed to read and review.
November ’12 – Shakespeare Tragedy: Julius Caesar
December ’12 – Shakespeare Comedy: Twelfth Night, or What You Will
January ’13 – Freebie: Our Town, by Thornton Wilder
March ’13 – Greek: Oedipus Rex, by Sophocles
June ’13 – Oscar Wilde: The Importance of Being Earnest
And here are the monthly memes I participated in:
January ’13 – Stage/Film Adaptation: Twelfth Night, or What You Will
May ’13 – Music: The Importance of Being Earnest
From all the plays I’ve read, it was Our Town that moved me the most. It made me think again about how I use time as long as I lived. Did I let it pass away so quickly without realizing a meaning of every moment that’s happened? And then there was also The Importance of Being Earnest, that made me fall in love with Oscar Wilde’s wit. I also loved the adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest so much.
Thanks to Fanda and Dessy for hosting this event, also to Listra who hosted the monthly memes!
