    It all ended so fast I feel like it s just January, but look at the calendar it s December You surely remember earlier in the year when I said I had put a challenge for myself This was the Shakespeare Challenge, in which I had to read all the works known by William Shakespeare Guess what I finally read them all It started in January I was bored and I didn t know what to read One day I went to the library and checked out a book that contained 4 of Shakespeare s best plays I read it and soon after I told myself I needed to read of his works Thus, I got another book The Complete Works of William Shakespeare 11 months after, I finally managed to read them all.The task of reading Shakespeare s works was not as difficult or tedious as it seems to be It took me long because I was most of the time busy and didn t have time to read, so I read them in between classes and studying To my surprise, I loved some of the plays, others disturbed me, and others made me laugh out loud.The first plays I read were the most popular ones, and were the ones I enjoyes the most The tragedies...

    I understand now why I have such a hard time reading Shakespeare It s not that it s hard to understand There are enough translations and self help guides to get you through the plot of any of the plays And once I started reading and translating, I started to get the hang of it, and had fewer words and phrases that I had to look up No, it s not that Simply put, it s a play, and not meant to be read I know there are some who might disagree with me, however, that s my opinion I revel in the complacency of description and plays don t have it It is just dialogue There is nothing to tell you infinitely how a character is feeling or what they re thinking There s nothing to tell you how the set looks besides a sometimes small minimalist description There is nothing to tell how a character looks, are they beautiful Are they old Yes, I understand you can infer many of these things from the dialogue which is what you re supposed to do, but to me, there is great room for interpretation, unlike a book, which will describe it for you Also, after doing a little reading on Shakespeare and the republishing of his works, it seems there are many different conflicting sources of original text, which is why you often find various works with different scripts I truly believe that Shakespeare meant these to be seen on stage, not read from a page It s where his genius is best seen and appreciated That being said, I plan to read each play, then watch a movie rendition of e...

    19 10 I ve just started a course on Shakespeare through FutureLearn and the first play that we are studying is The Merry Wives of Windsor, which is one I know absolutely nothing about So far, I ve read about three pages, or to the end of scene one and what I understand is that while I can barely understand the language, I can get the general gist of what s going on or at least I think I can There are many instances where God is Got, better is petter, brings is prings, very is fery, good is goot, and w is left off the beginning of a couple of words, all of which makes for confusing and slow reading I think I understand what was being discussed in scene one Shallow has accused Falstaff of assault, breaking and entering and poaching of his deer but it was a little difficult to pull that information out of all those difficult and misspelt words Professor Bate s who is the scholar running the course comment that Elizabethan s weren t concerned with spelling is certainly proven correct by the writing in The Merry Wives of Windsor To be continuedAt the end of act I, scene III I don t understand why Falstaff is trying to woo a pair of married women Is he just being spiteful Or is he delusional enough to really believe that they gave him good eyes To be continued26 10 Well I finished it, mostly thanks to I really had trouble with the language throughout the ...

    Please note, this is a review of this particular edition of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare from 1923 For reviews of various individual plays by Shakespeare, please see my shelves This edition was published by The Literary Press, London on fine paper, to traditional standards, with each section sewn into the spine rather than glued The top edge of the volume is gilt edged It has a soft cover with a burgundy leatherette finish, and gold lettering, plus a gold embossed design of the Shakespeare Coat of Arms Not many people know that William Shakespeare received a Coat of Arms from the English Government, to signify that he and his family were now a part of the upper class Unfortunately, since he did not have a son to carry on the honour, the Coat of Arms was not carried on through the family name Here is a copy of the Shakespeare Coat of Arms The motto is in medieval French Non sanz droict translating to English as, Not without right .This volume is clearly intended to be a useful compact volume of Shakespeare s complete works It is subtitled, Containing the Plays and Poems with special Introductory matter, Index of Characters Glossary o...

    What an exquisite edition of one of the greatest works in the Western canon Armed with an authoritative editorial team, Professor Jonathan Bate has reworked all of Shakespeare s plays, as well as his poems The footnotes are extensive and cover all meanings of words including the salacious ones that many school texts leave out , while also providing informative historical and contextual information.This edition seeks to give us every word attributed to Shakespeare although, as it points out at length, we can t really know what he wrote all of our current versions come from a variety of sources typeset in his later years, and primarily from the First Folio printed after his death Any work of the Bard s is distorted in some way With appendices and footnotes, notable textual errors or areas of debate are highlighted.There is so much to love here Epic tragedies Antony and Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, Hamlet, King Lear joined by their lesser, but poetically affecting counterparts like Othello, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet and Titus Andronicus Shakespeare plays with and shuffles around comic tropes in his wide variety of comedies peaks include The Comedy of Errors, Love s Labour s Lost, A Midsummer Night s Dream and Much Ado About Nothing.In his subdued romances, Shakespeare often seem...
