1/2 pint of Shakespeare

The Recipe

Let’s start our mix with a pitcher of Sexy from the peerless Kate Beaton, who provides us with these ‘sexy tudors‘ , while Kate claims to have been inspired by HBO’s ‘The Tudors’, I would argue this is poor sourcing. Surely this is the epitome of sexed up Tudor ingredients:

Having added our pitcher of sex, you must now add the pinch of violence. In this case, two posts that show us that however much the Restoration can be considered the dawn of Enlightenment and the birth of Science they still insisted on these shenanigans:

As such add to the recipe  a pinch of witches in Scotland via Rag Linen: here & a smidge of restoration execution at Executed Today: here.

.

Two fine slabs of domestic debate, one from my own fair hand and another from Dainty Ballerina: here.

Perhaps an argumentative  illustration would help?

The dough should be coming along nicely now, and so to the exotic. Our trading friends from the Dutch Republic have brought some ingredients in from Japan. Make up your qrt. with some Edo period recycling from Quirky Japan Blog : here (translated from here) and what the Pokemon would look like in Edo art from Got Medieval here (via here for more).

.

.

And finally, the staple ingredients of any good history blogger,  Two litres of Pepys and half a pint of Shakespeare.  Sourcing ingredients is very important and I would suggest 1 litre of Pepys from Mercurius Politicus: here and 1 litre from Georgian London: here. And for your 1/2 pint of Shakespeare your best to go to Dainty Ballerina: here.

Final preparation as illustrated here:
