365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

205. History’s Original Cougar

leave a comment »

No, I’m not talking about Anne Hathaway (though she did have a couple of years on her hubby). I’m talking about Venus – of Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis.

According to this article, Lindy Madrid (easily one of the greatest names I’ve ever come across) has dubbed Venus as the “original cougar”, due to her desperate pursuit of the less-fiery – and rather younger – Adonis.

Brilliant. I am dying to read a transcript of Madrid’s presentation!
