Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who wrote “Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds, . . .:?
2. Who wrote the poem How Do I Love Thee? and what is its first line?
3. Who composed the wedding march known as here Comes the Bride and for which Sakespeare play was it written?
3b – Is that enough questions about love and marriage?
4. When did Don Brash become an MP?
5. At which university did Rodney Hide teach?
Points for answers: (allowing both Wagner and Mendelssohn for #3 becaue I got the question wrong. Mendelssohn composed the march from Midsummer Night’s Dream but it’s Wagner’s bridal chorus which is known as Here Comes the Bride).
Andrei got 3 1/2 (you got the composer but missed the play).
Gravedoger earned a large slice of electronic wedding cake for a clean sweep and a bonus for supporting love and marriage.
Bearhunter also earned a large slice of electornic wedding cake for a clean sweep- and yes Wagner’s music was for Lohengrin.
David got 3 1/2.
Rob got 3 1/2 with a bonus for extra information.
Adam got 4 1/2.
Answers follow the break:
1. William Shakespeare.
2. Elizabeth Barrett Browning. How Do I love thee? Let me count the ways?
3. Mendelssohn, Misdsummer Nights Dream.
3b – That’s very much a matter of opinion.
4. July 2002.
