And yet another version in our Magic Theatre 3:52pm

Act 5, scene 5
Macbeth had to reject a very attractive translation for lack of time. In an aside, he reflects sadly on his predicament but in the end he sees a new light of reason and hope.

"They should have called hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a job.
Translations, and translations, and translations,
Creeps in this busy life from day to day
With the last syllable almost on deadline,
And all my yesterdays have the CAT tools
Processed all the work that I can handle!
Life's but an endless job, no time for pleasure.
This has to change, I have too cheap a rate!
I shall complain no more: I’ll change my fate
I’ll stop this madness, to work in such a hurry,
getting next to nothing. "

Lovely! Are there more of these buried in the forum? Mar 24, 2004

I always wanted to do one on Felix Krull. Now I'm inspired but in the same predicament as MacBeth (lack of time).

Thank you very much!
Terry

Hi Terry, thanks for your kind words. You can find more Shakespeare-inspired digressions in http://www.proz.com/topic/18622.

You should go for your Felix Krull. We all deserve some time for ourselves.

Cheers,
Enrique
