Shakespeare Wrote a play called Esprit


Just this past and last week Shakespearean scholars in the UK discovered a first draft of HAMLET…


The hero was originally named ESPRIT, and he said (at one point):




Vee Queue, Eh, or not Vee Queue, Eh - that is the question:

    Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

    The slings and arrows of outrageous wineries

    Or to take arms against a sea of rotting grapes,

    And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep-

    No more; and by a sleep to say we end

    The wine wars, and the thousand natural shocks

    That palate is heir to. 'Tis a consummation 

    Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.

    To pass out- perchance to dream: ay, there's the vino!
