Greetings in the Mars-day ... not the day of the War ... but the day of Tyr God ... the day of the One who knows where is going.

     And add Shakespeare to the Soup of 2012 ... it is a Well addition. It gives and add an important Peaceful ingredient ...

    Love's Labour's Lost' is a Shakespearian Play ... regarding Marriage and Love ... Of course it is very funny.

    In past times ... Write a Letter to the Lover ... and when I say 'Lover' ... I understood a Romantic Love ... or a Love with someone you love ... because you see ... or on the Streets, or in some place ... TV/Mucis Show/Web ... not understood in nowadays terms ... where 'Lover' means ... someone who have several sexual affairs ... and you are just but one ...

    My sense is a Romantic sense of the Word.

    In past ages, may be in Spain ... or Europe ... Write a Letter to a Lover (Romantic) were an Art ... still a Rare Art of Cupid coinage.

    Love's Labour's Lost has been translated in Italian like Pene d'amor perdute ... but they are not Perdute because there are a Happy End ... in Spanish ... Trabajos de Amor Perdidos ... in French ... Peines d'amour perdues ... and in German Verlorene Liebesmüh.

    Like you see ... German loose less time in Love ... and this is a Blessing. 

    This lesson is NOT Ironic ... but about English ... 

    In fact the personages or actors/actress are ...

FERDINAND, king of Navarre.
DUMAIN      lords attending on the King.
MERCADE      lords attending on the Princess of France.
DON ADRIANO DE ARMADO, a fantastical Spaniard.
SIR NATHANIEL, a curate.
HOLOFERNES, a schoolmaster.
DULL, a constable.
COSTARD, a clown.
MOTH, page to Armado.
A Forester.
The PRINCESS of France.
KATHARINE      ladies attending on the Princess.
JAQUENETTA, a country wench.
Lords, Attendants, &c.


     Now ... my question and Invitation is ... What role would you play in Shakespearean 'Love's Labour's Lost' ?

    Would Thou be ... the King of Navarre ? ... speaking a fabulous English ... with Charm, Tact and Beauty? ...

      Or ... the Tonto ... unable to give the right Love Letter ... from the right Lord to the right Lady? ...

       Or ... Longaville ... one of the King's man ... with great and clear words ...

      Or ... Don Adriano de Armando ... unable to declare his Love to his maid ...

      Or Dumain ... another of the Lords ... attending the King.


      ... Or the best speakers with the Highest Words ... Lord Biron ...


       Have you heard ??? ... 'To fast, to study and to see no women' ... Jajajaja ...

       And because, I Giovanni (John) modestly consider thy words ... the best in the Play ... I resume for Thee ... here ...

BIRON    'Tis more than need.
Have at you, then, affection's men at arms.
Consider what you first did swear unto,
To fast, to study, and to see no woman;
Flat treason 'gainst the kingly state of youth.
Say, can you fast? your stomachs are too young;
And abstinence engenders maladies.
And where that you have vow'd to study, lords,
In that each of you have forsworn his book,
Can you still dream and pore and thereon look?
For when would you, my lord, or you, or you,
Have found the ground of study's excellence
Without the beauty of a woman's face?
From women's eyes this doctrine I derive; They are the ground, the books, the academes From whence doth spring the true Promethean fire
Why, universal plodding poisons up
The nimble spirits in the arteries,
As motion and long-during action tires
The sinewy vigour of the traveller.
Now, for not looking on a woman's face,
You have in that forsworn the use of eyes
And study too, the causer of your vow;
For where is any author in the world
Teaches such beauty as a woman's eye?
Learning is but an adjunct to ourself
And where we are our learning likewise is:
Then when ourselves we see in ladies' eyes,
Do we not likewise see our learning there?
O, we have made a vow to study, lords,
And in that vow we have forsworn our books.
For when would you, my liege, or you, or you,
In leaden contemplation have found out
Such fiery numbers as the prompting eyes
Of beauty's tutors have enrich'd you with?
Other slow arts entirely keep the brain;
And therefore, finding barren practisers,
Scarce show a harvest of their heavy toil:
But love, first learned in a lady's eyes,
Lives not alone immured in the brain;
But, with the motion of all elements,
Courses as swift as thought in every power,
And gives to every power a double power,
Above their functions and their offices.
It adds a precious seeing to the eye;
A lover's eyes will gaze an eagle blind;
A lover's ear will hear the lowest sound,
When the suspicious head of theft is stopp'd:
Love's feeling is more soft and sensible
Than are the tender horns of cockl'd snails;
Love's tongue proves dainty Bacchus gross in taste:
For valour, is not Love a Hercules,
Still climbing trees in the Hesperides?
Subtle as Sphinx; as sweet and musical
As bright Apollo's lute, strung with his hair:
And when Love speaks, the voice of all the gods
Makes heaven drowsy with the harmony.
Never durst poet touch a pen to write
Until his ink were temper'd with Love's sighs;
O, then his lines would ravish savage ears
And plant in tyrants mild humility.
From women's eyes this doctrine I derive:
They sparkle still the right Promethean fire;
They are the books, the arts, the academes,
That show, contain and nourish all the world:
Else none at all in ought proves excellent.
Then fools you were these women to forswear,
Or keeping what is sworn, you will prove fools.
For wisdom's sake, a word that all men love,
Or for love's sake, a word that loves all men,
Or for men's sake, the authors of these women,
Or women's sake, by whom we men are men,
Let us once lose our oaths to find ourselves,
Or else we lose ourselves to keep our oaths.
It is religion to be thus forsworn,
For charity itself fulfills the law,
And who can sever love from charity?

FERDINAND    Saint Cupid, then! and, soldiers, to the field!


 Or Lord Beyot ... or the Queen if the case you are a Lady ...

  And in the case you are a Lady ... What Lady would Thou Shall Be?


  I consider ... the Watch, the study ... not ... 'the Fast, the Study and see no Women' ... No ... The Watch and the Study of the Shakespearian Plays a CURATIVE and VERY IMPORTANT COMPONENT of the HEALING OF THE SOUL AND THE MIND.

  Yes ... Shakespeare is CURATIVE ... because like Lovely Words of a Lovely Doctor (Francis Bacon, the Author) we get in tone with the Universe.

The Shakespearian Plays ... ARE A BLESSINGS ... because they ARE WORDS ... HEALING WORDS ... that ALIGN the HUMAN DNA.

And the Align of HUMAN DNA ... is what People Need ... Align with WHAT ? ... Align with the Cosmic Lattice ...

This is a Great Healing.

There are hundred of representation of Love's Labour's Lost ... and honestly ... THERE ARE NOTHING LOST ... because Each Men and each WOMEN ... got their ... Lover (not romantic ... this time, but REAL!).


Blessed are Thee,

Giovanni A. Orlando


PS. Disturb NOT the Thunder ... because the Thunder is Powerful ... than You.
