Comments on "Reluctant romantics" - Faerye Net 2010-11-30T20:00:34+00:00 I love it too! 2010-11-30T20:00:34+00:00 2010-11-30T20:00:34+00:00 <p>I am showing the film to my Sophomore English students! And using it as my opportunity to tell them about Shakespeare’s ideas of comedy and tragedy. It’s all a mixed bag—both comedy and tragedy have heartache and betrayal, duels and love scenes, humor and remorse, death and passion—only the comedies suggest life goes on with weddings (the glass half full) and the tragedies—Oh, woe is I!—see everything going to hell (glass is half empty). But it’s the same glass. Better, I think, to enjoy.</p> Jan Priddy Re: Marriage 2010-11-29T12:02:02+00:00 2010-11-29T12:02:02+00:00 <p>Thank you, Emily.</p> Felicity Marriage 2010-11-29T07:41:48+00:00 2010-11-29T07:41:48+00:00 <p>I love how you marry these ideas together. I have moments of insight mumbling to a love in the night but I need to practise writing more coherently as you do. :-) Bon travail.</p> Emily
