Passing on Culture

Andree Seu describes her effort to prepare her son to see Shakespeare's "Pericles, Prince of Tyre:"

In spite of the ponderous Greek name it’s called a “comedy,” not a “tragedy.” Of course “comedy,” for the Bard, is not Lucille Ball stuffing chocolates into her maw on a runaway assembly line; it just means the stage isn’t covered with dead bodies at the end of Act V. My son was disappointed when I told him. He wanted to see the bodies.
