Oh, this is too good to be true :shock:

But, I will assume it is, and request the monologues below.

My very first role on stage was Lorenzo in the Merchant of Venice, and parts of that monologue are still stuck in my head, so it would be a dream to do it for this LibriVox project. Of course, the Shakespearean part I would most like to play is Shylock, so I'd love to add some of his great lines. King Lear is a close second.

Merchant of Venice:
Lorenzo - How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank
Shylock - To bait fish withal, if it will feed nothing else,it will feed my revenge.
Shylock - I have possess'd your grace of what I purpose
Shylock - Signior Antonio, many a time and oft

King Lear
Lear - Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!

(And, this is my post 7777 in the LV forums, so I think that is auspicious) :mrgreen:

Can do Julia's monologue in 'Two Gentlemen of Verona'

O hateful hands, to tear such loving words!
Injurious wasps, to feed on such sweet honey
And kill the bees that yield it with your stings!
I'll kiss each several paper for amends.
Look, here is writ 'kind Julia.' Unkind Julia!
As in revenge of thy ingratitude,
I throw thy name against the bruising stones,
Trampling contemptuously on thy disdain.
And here is writ 'love-wounded Proteus.'
Poor wounded name! my bosom as a bed
Shall lodge thee till thy wound be thoroughly heal'd;
And thus I search it with a sovereign kiss.
But twice or thrice was 'Proteus' written down.
Be calm, good wind, blow not a word away
Till I have found each letter in the letter,
Except mine own name: that some whirlwind bear
Unto a ragged fearful-hanging rock
And throw it thence into the raging sea!
Lo, here in one line is his name twice writ,
'Poor forlorn Proteus, passionate Proteus,
To the sweet Julia:' that I'll tear away.
And yet I will not, sith so prettily
He couples it to his complaining names.
Thus will I fold them one on another:
Now kiss, embrace, contend, do what you will.
