My son and I are in the kitchen looking for something to eat. He finds a bag of Pepperidge Farm Verona cookies (I prefer the Raspberry Milanos myself), holds the bag up to my face, and says
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean
Two hours traffic on our stage blah blah blah
Then he eats the cookies.
So who says Shakespeare has no relevance for the modern student?
