Royal 890, circa 1967
I am in blood
Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,
Returning were as tedious as go o’er.
Oooh this is a sinister moment. Lady Macbeth, questioning Macbeth’s suspicion of Macduff (the play’s hero), suggests to her husband that maybe he’s acting just a little needlessly paranoid. This quote is his response. Strap in, kids: bloodlust ensues.
What could be more 60’s than a white typewriter with black keys? I chose this Royal because it was manufactured smack in the middle of the Vietnam War, a year when the reasons to keep wading through blood made about as much sense as Macbeth does in this quote.
