April 23: "If You Have Poison for Me, I Will Drink It" (Vol. 46, pp. 293-303)
On this day in 1616, William Shakespeare died, so we get this slice of "King Lear." Again, while this Shakespeare, words on the page don't do this stuff justice. Plays have to be performed, not read, to get the full punch.
