I'm a postgrad student studying for an MA in Renaissance and Early Modern Studies. It's an interdisciplinary course stealing modules from, well, every discipline possible. This blog is dedicated to all things related to the 15th-17th centuries, and anything else I can justify as relevant. Some of it will be funny things I find on the internet, or reblogs of interesting things. Hopefully a fair amount of it will be my own comments, thoughts and things I've found interesting while studying. My background is in English and history, so literature and history will probably dominate.

May contain dick jokes.

"They say best men are molded out of faults,
And, for the most, become much more the better
For being a little bad."

William Shakespeare  (via alltherestarejustdetails) (via saynotocosmo)

This is Mariana speaking in ‘Measure for Measure’ act 5, scene 1 lines 440-2. She is begging Isabella to help her plead for Angelo’s life, despite the wrong he has done her. Isabella agrees.

I always get suspicious when I see context-less Shakespeare quotes around as when they are a character’s lines, they will often reflect how the character was written, not Shakespeare himself. It’s useful therefore to know the play, character and situation.

It is a beautiful quote though.
