Over the next several days I’ll be pointing out some of the new features of the website. Having yesterday given an account of State of the Union, the group blog your eyes are taking in this very moment, now I direct your attention to what might be called the site’s Easter egg, Millman’s Shakesblog. This is a project Noah Millman had quietly pursued for some time; today it has a home at TAC, helping to anchor and augment our cultural coverage. (You can find a feed of the Shakesblog on our Arts and Letters page, which also presents book reviews and cultural pieces from the magazine and elsewhere on the site.)
Noah’s latest addition to the Shakesblog — which, as the name suggests, often recurs to the Bard, but isn’t exclusively about him — is a review of “Time Stands Still,” Donald Margulies’s play about emotional as well as physical “collateral damage” from the Iraq War.
