It'sTuesday...Where are you?

Every Tuesday I'll post about where my reading is taking me. You can join the fun too. Visit An Adventure in Reading to find out more.

I'll be spending some time in Venice, Italy today as I follow Antonia, a merchant of Venice, in about the 1500s. The language is a challenge that is well worth the time taken to understand it.

"I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano: a stage, where every man must play a part, and mine a sad one."

The Merchant of Venice, a play by William Shakespeare

Mm, sounds nice. I saw this play at the Globe a few years back, and it was excellent. (Apart from the anti-Semitism which is quite unpleasant to watch or read.)
