    Summary

    When old age shall this generation waste,
    Thou shalt remain, in midst of other woe
    Than ours, a friend to man, to whom thou say'st,
    'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
    Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.'

    Plato's Symposium has a few holes in it.

    Summary

    There is no god, for he is just a humble man of his city. There is no blood, except his own, to this tenet he holds true. This story has no beginning, and it has no end. That is how you hold onto power. That is what you must create.

    Summary

    Ink stained fingers and ale left untouched. The cheapest paper left to rot and cuffs stained with little spots of black. A life shared but never quite lived together. A boy who wanted to be a poet, remembered as a playwright, and a boy who wanted to stage, remembered for his blood on a dagger held by no one.

    In this play, the play of life, we do not always get what we want.

    Summary

    Six months later, after summer was over, after Harfleur, she was by the window of her favorite sitting room, looking out at the last leaves and the grey-brown earth, when abruptly the wind crept around the glazing and into her ears, whispering of mud and death and screaming horses.

    Summary

    Welcome to the Caro-verse! In a nutshell, the Caro-verse is a large, sprawling AU of Romeo and Juliet. It's built off of two major departures from the original play. The first departure is that Mercutio survives his Act III duel with Tybalt. The second departure is that Benvolio and Mercutio become lovers, and they spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to approach life in late-sixteenth-century Italy from that perspective.

    Bash’s face is drained of all hope when his eyes finally meet Mary’s. There’s nothing for them to do but reach for each other’s arms, and as they grasp at each other, the fear in their hearts is a book of prophecy.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.

    If you fall in love with one of the damned, should you join him in his damnation?

    "As a child hearing the song of his beloved mother is woken from deep sleep, so I felt myself drawn back from my darkness by the stern sound of my master's voice."

    Summary

    All the awkwardness of seeking a volunteer for an attempt, which every soldier was convinced was as good as asking a man to cast away his life to no purpose, naturally recommended Colonel Hamilton's offer; in any case, Washington allow'd himself to be persuaded, and the operation was carried out an hour later, in a deserted and fallow field some half a mile from the encampment.
