Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die."
I wanted to re-read "Twelfth Night" because I'm going to see it again this weekend (this time in the Globe Theatre version with Mark Rylance's Olivia and Stephen Fry's Malvolio). This play, like most if not all of Shakespeare's masterpieces, gets better and better with every reading. This was also the first time I've read one of his plays in a no-frills free Kindle version and I really loved the experience. When I read a version of the plays with introductions and footnotes and marginalia, I feel my eye inevitably drawn to all those distractions. Reading the play quickly and with more immediacy from beginning to end without detours was much easier in this stripped-down electronic version.
