Art Attack!


Definitely having art attack at the moment.  This, I will prove by sharing with you two favorite art piece of mine:

Sonnet 18 by none-other-than William Shakespeare (1609)

and

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (1920)

***

~ Sonnet 18 by William Shakespeare ~

Sonnet 18 is the most known and loved sonnet in the sum of 154 sonnet.

The author, William Shakespeare needs no introduction forhis masterpiece is well-known and treasured till this very moment.

In fact, every now and then, people would do remakes of his work to re-live this playwright/poet/actor’s remarkable talent.

His other works include:

  • the world phenomenon : Romeo and Juliet
  • Hamlet
  • Julius Caesar
  • Macbeth
  • Othello
  • my personal favorite, The Taming of the Shrew

  • ***

~ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost ~

Robert Lee Frost, American poet and playwright had won (not one, not two, not three but) four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry during his career.

  • 1924 for New Hampshire: A Poem With Notes and Grace Notes
  • 1931 for Collected Poems
  • 1937 for A Further Range
  • 1943 for A Witness Tree

Despite having to relate more to rural-based writing, Frost grew up in the city.

He published his first poem in his high school magazine.

I reckon one’s passion starts early, ey?

Frost quoted:

“One stanza of ‘The Road Not Taken’ was written while I was sitting on a sofa in the middle of England: was found three or four years later, and I couldn’t bear not to finish it. I wasn’t thinking about myself there, but about a friend who had gone off to war, a person who, whichever road he went, would be sorry he didn’t go the other. He was hard on himself that way.”
~ Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference August 1953
