18.6.12

Wherefore?

We've been singing the Shakespeare song from Horrible Histories all weekend and the twelve year old can now quote more Shakespeare than most undergraduates.  And he correctly answered the skill-testing question about the meaning of "wherefore art thou Romeo?"  He says he learned it from an old Peanuts strip.  Linus tells Lucy that wherefore means why and Lucy says: "Now that I know that, what do I do?"

Now I am off to look for this book to add to our already extensive collection of  Horrible Histories.    You can find a complete list of titles here.
