Picturing a World

Twelfth Night, or what you Will

I don’t much like 19th C caricatures, but I love the punch drinker’s salute to William Shakespeare’s bust here. As you probably know, the play Twelfth Night was written by Shakespeare in the winter of 1601–1602 (the first recorded performance was on Candlemas Night, February 2, 1602). In my own work, I now need to invent a Yuletide play. Maybe this picture will supply a hint (though hardly an Epiphany!).

Happy Twelfth Night.
