Did anyone else catch the second part of Michael Wood's PBS specials?

Very keen. I'm going to have to go over to the PBS web site to see if I can
find the text of any of the Queen's Player's plays they featured.

The Medici documentary that followed totally ignored the Medici family's
patronage of the Neoplatonist poets and writers. Pout. Oh, well -- I guess
Pico Della Mirandola isn't as visual as a Botecelli.

Still, it would have be nice if they'd pointed out that Lorenzo and his
fellow Neoplatonist poets and writers were the persons who had inspired
Sandro's "vivid imagination". I think it left a lot to be desired as
history, but it was lovely ~!

BTW, I have to mention this -- that fabulous picture of Lorenzo carrying the
bloodied body of his brother from the church? Didn't happen. But it looked
great ~! Sigh....
