Things people do with Shakespeare.....
I'm reading 'Birthday Letters', the new book of poems by Ted Hughes. In
a poem called 'The 59th Bear' he describes how he and Sylvia Plath were
camping in Yellowstone National Park in the USA and during the night a
bear broke into their car and took all their food. He writes:
.......................He'd leaned in
And on claw hooks lifted out our larder.
He'd left matted hairs. I glued them in my Shakespeare.
