Shakespeare Season 2012


Shakespeare unlocked


Have you watched or listened to any of the Shakespeare season on the BBC this month?  I have had a long and intimate relationship with some of Shakespeare’s work: Macbeth, Othello, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Anthony and Cleopatra and Coriolanus. However, there are huge gaps in my knowledge, not least King Lear and Henry IV part 1 and 2. As I am in my late twenties and consider myself well-read these oversights are somewhat embarrassing. Therefore, to correct this grievous wrong, I will be setting myself a challenge this year to read one new Shakespeare play each month for the rest of the year. I am also going to go to Stratford upon Avon to get to know the Bard better. So stay tuned for more on Shakespeare and undoubtably what I will learn about myself in the process.
