After we finished I put on the St. Crispin's Day Speech by Branagh (again), and pointed out that it was the guy who played Benedick. They tolerated it with me explaining what was actually happening, ("They're all scared because the French have a lot more soldiers, but the King is saying they're all lucky to be fighting together...") I keep force feeding them poetry and good books. I also keep thinking about the basic position we're trying to communicate by example: everything is interesting. The world is marvelous and complicated and weird and full of beauty. And you have to love Dylan Thomas and T. S. Eliot or Mommy will disown you.
