Paperback: $8.50

This is an easy-to-read retelling of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," whose major theme is love and the silly things it makes us do: 1) Love can make us see a... More > distinction where no real distinction exists. 2) Love can make us desire someone who is totally unsuitable for us. 3) Love can make us blind to the loved one’s faults. 4) Love can make us jealous. 5) Love can make friends enemies. 6) Love can make us quarrelsome. 7) Love can make us fickle. 8) If we are rejected, love can make us have low self-esteem (e.g., Helena). 9) Love can make us chase after someone who hates us. 10) Love can make us attempt to use reason to explain love although love is a nonrational emotion. (Lysander does this.) 11) Love is not irrational, although it can make people act in silly ways. Love is nonrational. 12) One of the best comments on the nonrationality of love is made by Bottom: “And yet, to say the truth, reason / and love keep little company together nowadays.”< Less

One does wish to comment, if one may, on the statement by a descendant of Russian Jews (not of Isaac Babel), "Energetic as [Stendhal] is, he cannot match Balzac and Victor Hugo, preternatural... More > demiurges of creativity, and his art is precisely the reverse of Flaubert's painstaking mastery," that the statement can be with equal wisdom, "Energetic as [Shakespeare] is in his 39 plays, he cannot match Lope, preternatural demiurge of creativity who wrote 1,800 plays, and his art is precisely the reverse of Joyce's painstaking mastery." Neither Stendhal nor Shakespeare would have pointed out as one writer does, that the CIA smacks (futile attempt of Cheney that "I'd" do it again, when this thing started much earlier and notwithstanding the implied "Cheney Administration" (Putin to pres. Medvedev)) of the Gestapo and the former employer of Putin, the umbrellaed KGB. And neither has Volterra. His works published from 2013 onwards are essentially tributes to Rimitto chiyan.
