Greene Reads: A Bright Ray of Darkness

Now Reading (Listening): A Bright Ray of Darkness (2021) by Ethan Hawke

“We would rather be ruined than changed.

We would rather die in our dread

Than climb the cross of the moment

And let our illusions die.” — W.H. Auden

From the moment we learn how to read, society, through the education system, is preparing us for the words of William Shakespeare.
