Shakespeare at Large

Mandela, Shakespeare, Goosebumps

Incredible piece on Julius Caesar: Shakespeare’s African Play, including details about Nelson Mandela's embrace of Shakespeare while in prison. Here's the passage he marked:

Cowards die many times before their deaths:

The valiant never taste of death but once.

Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,

It seems to me most strange that men

Should fear…
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.
