"Paradox" merits a link just for the magnitude of the task she's set herself (as an independent study, no less). She's writing a Shakespearean style play about the Bard's life, based on the connections between his life and his works. She's got the dynamics of his marriage from Richard III, and now she's on Merchant of Venice having seen a book entitled "Shylock and Shakespeare."
She then launches into a comparison of Portia to women in the church of Latter Day Saints, and a lengthy discussion of her own thoughts on her (someday) LDS marriage. Quite an intriguing post.
