The History Buffs Guide to World War II by Thomas R. Flagel

This book was well written... if it were a comedy.

Using a multitude of big words to fill in the gaps of information such as some dates, places, and other important facts, its almost a joke. A literal joke with a few snide remarks at mainly the Axis and a few unliked Allies, it is almost in reverse with how it is written. Going from the most interesting or most relevant in a crescendo of awkwardness, you lose interest after a few lists. It mentions a few items, one being The White Cliffs of Dover by Vera Lynn, but never mentioned her name at all. While this does inspire you to learn more, it shouldnt be necessary to have to research her name.

However, this book is good for starters that are interested in the Second World War. It does give the basics of the big names in the war such as the generals, gives great military information (speeches, battles, and key locations), but shouldnt qualify as a History Buffs book. The timeline at the end gives insight and is slightly helpful to you as you follow along the lists.

If it were to include necessary information, be formatted properly, a bit more care and research poured into, it would be a better book overall. Nonetheless, it has redeemable qualities and is a great start to learning about World War 2!

The Romeo and Juliet Prologue: A Sonnet

How wrong I was! To begin with, he looked at the history of plays before Shakespeare, when at one time all plays were written in rhyme. Reading the plays in chronological order the jangling couplets made difficult reading, and Patrick explained his relief when he got to plays that moved away from them. The first blank verse play was Gorboduc , a tragic drama dating from , and Supposes, a comedy, was written in prose. By the time Shakespeare came along, writers like Marlowe had made blank verse plays the norm, though rhyme was certainly not dead. Throughout his career Shakespeare experimented with poetic forms, and he does this with rhyme as much as he does with blank verse. In The Two Gentlemen of Verona the womanising Proteus speaks in rhyme, the virtuous and rather dull Valentine in blank verse.
