Just wordplay by a well-traveled trouper. Macbeth Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle. Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing. Oh I recognise all those qualities (although i wouldn't call his caustic commentary, subtle) but I don't see him as bragging . I'll probably never know what I did to upset the poor chap so badly, but he seems incapable of speaking rationally and calmly with me. Poor old Macbeth was a depressing character, but lets look a t Shakespeare. He is an example tha t our words can live on and have effects hundreds of years after we die His words don't "signify nothing" They mean a lot to many people, even today. This is also true of most great literature. Edited February 7, 2022 by Mr Walker Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
