Love high resolution promotional pictures? And also The Hollow Crown? A bunch of hi-res promo shots have just popped up on Tumblr -- or rather, someone started posting Hotspur pictures I didn't recognize, and all of a sudden I knew where so many of the other images I'd seen over the last year came from.

Also, sign-ups are closed, but if you want to follow [livejournal.com profile] thisengland, the Shakespeare histories ficathon, on DW, [syndicated profile] thisengland_feed is available for your delectation.

If, like me, you've been keening for Hollow Crown icons, [personal profile] meganbmoore has us covered with 133 icons from all four plays with a pretty good spread of characters.

Have you seen any other Shakespeare-related icon posts? Have you made some? Feel free to post 'em here.

A few quick news-ish pieces!
  • If you missed The Hollow Crown for whatever reason, each episode is lurking around on YouTube. Get 'em while they're hot.
  • If you poke around in the DeviantArt gallery of Rod Espinosa, you can find neat comic-style illustrations for a couple of plays, including Cymbeline, Romeo & Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. I haven't been able to find a set-up that's more ordered, but if I do, it'll go up here.
  • Via shakespearean, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre plays set to screen in movie theaters in the UK, USA, Australia, and New Zealand, including All's Well That Ends Well, Much Ado About Nothing and, for Dr. Who fans, the production of Marlowe's Doctor Faustus featuring Arthur Darvill. Trailer and poster here.

    I spent most of last week mainlining Henry IV - I got my hands on the Globe's production of parts 1 and 2 from 2010, which were released on DVD a while ago, and then of course there was The Hollow Crown. After I'd watched them all I had lots of thoughts, and our lovely [personal profile] newredshoes asked me if I'd be willing to post them here. (And I tried to kill my darlings and cut this shorter, I did, but I think I accidentally wrote even more than I did before. I'm sorry.) So, if you're interested there are lots of thoughts and assorted video clips from the Globe under the cut!

    If there's a particular scene from the Globe you'd like to see, let me know and I'll see if I can get it up.

    I have not seen it yet, despite the best efforts of my Tumblr dash to make .gifsets of the entire episode. Tonight! But as for you, how did you feel about the final installment of The Hollow Crown?

    Well, okay, that's it. I am totally and completely undone.

    How did you cope with Henry IV Part 2? Reactions of all sorts (links, .gifs, flailing, feelings, keysmashing, essays, &c) all very much welcome.
