This blog started out as Michael Doherty's Personal Library, and it was reviews of books that normally don't get reviewed: basically porn and those insane Scientology books. It was all just a bit of fun, you understand. But both porn and cult propaganda get dull rather quickly. And then I embarked on a three-year Shakespeare study. And Shakespeare has basically taken over, which is a good thing.

Shakespeare References in The Homecoming
Harold Pinter’s play The
Homecoming doesn’t contain Shakespeare references, but the book mentions
Shakespeare at the beginning: “The
Homecoming was first presented by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the
Aldwych Theatre on 3 June 1965.” And then: “The play was presented by the Royal
Shakespeare Company and Alexander H. Cohen at the Music Box Theatre, New York,
on 5 January 1967.”
was first published in 1965. The Faber And Faber edition that I read was
published in 1991.
