Hallo Shakespeare, adiós Cervantes

Update zu Shorebound breezes shove the weary ship along!:

Iago. She that was ever fair and never proud,
Had tongue at will and yet was never loud,
Never lack’d gold and yet went never gay,
Fled from her wish and yet said ‘Now I may,’
She that being anger’d, her revenge being nigh,
Bade her wrong stay and her displeasure fly,
She that in wisdom never was so frail
To change the cod’s head for the salmon’s tail;
She that could think and ne’er disclose her mind,
See suitors following and not look behind,
She was a wight, if ever such wight were,—

Desdemona. To do what?

Iago. To suckle fools and chronicle small beer.

William Shakespeare: Othello II,1

Es ist der Tag des Buches (daher heute ohne Musik), des Urheberrechts (daher heute ohne Bilder), in Katalonien sogar der Verliebten (daher heute ohne Zeit), in Gesamtspanien Todestag von Cervantes (daher heute ohne… öh, Windmühlen), in England Geburtstag von Shakespeare (daher heute ohne nackte Weiber) und in Deutschland Tag des deutschen Bieres (daher heute ohne Sinn).

Danke an Wortfeilchen!
