Going To Kill Yourself?

Are you thinking about committing suicide? If you are, hold off, at least if you're doing it because someone is in a coma. An unlucky guy in Italy decided to kill himself after watching his wife in a coma for four months, she woke up less than a day later. Reuters carries the story.

    Do you think they read Romeo and Juliet in high school over in Italy?

    Wow, that is a really sad story. Especially like the whole timing on everything, I wonder what they told his wife.

    I'm sure they read Shakespeare everywhere.

    By everywhere you must mean everywhere they speak English.

    I'm guessing they would have translations or else maybe they saw the Romeo & Juliet movie, I'm sure that would have been translated into their language.

    Well, Romeo and Juliet is based on the collected sonnets of the famous Italian poet Petrarch. That, combined with the fact that it is probably one of the world's most famous plays and that English-originating literature tends to dominate that of other languages, I'd say that there is probably some interest in Italy.

    I learned something in Semmens's class.

    I do remember having to memorize something from Romeo and Juliet in Semmen's class, I don't have any idea what it is now, however, I do still remember my poem that I had to memorize. "He's the twistable, turnable, squeezeable, stretchable, foldable man....."

    I was not a big fan of Semmens' class.
