Eagle Archive: A New Windsor summer made glorious by William Shakespeare

Eagle Archive: A New Windsor summer made glorious by William Shakespeare

By Kevin Dayhoff, August 26, 2012: On the morning of Aug. 22, in 1485, a defining moment in English history took place with the death of Richard III in the Battle of Bosworth Field.

This of course, leads us directly to the summer of 1938 at Blue Ridge College in New Windsor.

Well, sorta-kinda.

I'll explain … after I wax poetic with William Shakespeare: "Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by this son of York…"

Many will recognize that these lines appear in Shakespeare's "Richard III" — the last play of a study in history of the Wars of Roses by Shakespeare, which includes, "Henry VI, parts 1, 2 and 3," "Richard II" and "Henry V." Of all of Shakespeare's work, "Richard III" remains my favorite (followed by, on any given day, "As You Like It").
