head in the books


6. Troilus and Cressida, Shakespeare


He eats nothing but doves, love, and that breeds hot blood, and hot blood begets hot thoughts, and hot thoughts beget hot deeds, and hot deeds is love.

What a mind. What a strange gift. There are times when I can totally get on board with Bloom's and everybody's wild overestimations of Shakespeare.
