1 Reminiscence of Michal to an Absent David I think the poem explains it well enough, but just in case, Michal is King David's wife like, from the Old Testament . I was reading in that area and came upon this story, which I didn't know... and it hit a few cords within me.

Hamlet and King Lear: Whom to Blame for the Catast Whom to Blame for the Catastrophes is how it should read I ran out of room. My only essay not counting the Final for my second semester of Shakespeare English 332. Considerably longer than the other two. Once again, I didn't like the topic choices.
