I want to start reading Shakespeare, no idea where to begin? by Anonymous Q: Read Romeo & Juliet and Macbeth both many years ago, would now like to read all of Shakespeare's work (including probably reading those two again since it has been such a long time). Is there a specific order they should be read in, a recommended order? Any other tips on reading Shakespeare?

A: Start by rereading the ones you already know - just to get used to the iambic pentameter and the language. His comedies are probably easier to get into than his tragedies - or you might want to mix them up. You've got some great reading ahead of you!

How does Shakespeare depict Gertrude and Ophelia as weaker and less influential then the male characters? by IDK Q: In Shakespeare's Hamlet how does he make the women seem less important than the men and why do you think he did?

A: Hamlet is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written between 1599 and 1601. The play, set in Denmark, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlet's father, the King, and then taken the throne and married Hamlet's mother. The play vividly charts the course of real and feigned madness—from overwhelming grief to seething rage—and explores themes of treachery, revenge, incest, and moral corruption. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamlet http://www.sparknotes.com/shakespeare/ha... http://www.cliffsnotes.com/WileyCDA/LitN... http://www.novelguide.com/hamlet/index.h... http://www.campusnut.com/book.cfm?articl... http://www.pinkmonkey.com/booknotes/monk... http://www.gradesaver.com/ClassicNotes/T... http://www.pinkmonkey.com/booknotes/barr... http://www.bookwolf.com/Free_Booknotes/H... http://www.awerty.com/hamlet2.html

What Shakespeare play is most easily adapted to modern times in a modern setting? by Olive Q: What Shakespeare play can be applied to issues going on today or easily accessible to a young audience?

A: I give my vote to Comedy of Errors. If it's for a young audience, it will be engaging through humour and witty dialogue (assuming they know what's going on). I've actually seen Merchant of Venice acted in modern times (well, as close as it can get, around the 1930's) and it was done quite well. It's a fantastic play, but if you're going to be showing this to a young audience, it does have some very heavy material which I'm not sure they would fully comprehend or appreciate. (Depends on how old they are, I guess.) Hope this helps. Cheers.

Is shakespeare correct to group lovers in with lunatics and poets? by LEANNE M Q: Is shakespeare (via Theseus) correct to group lovers in with lunatics and poets? Anybody please comment on the treatment of love and lovers in A Midsummers Night's Dream.

A: It is observed, happening quite often that way. So there is hardly any good reason to dispute it with Shakespeare. That is based on my experience.

Is understanding Shakespeare a matter of intelligence? by JenniferMarsh Q: A lot of people complain that the works of Shakespeare are incomprehensible to them. They frequently make the excuse that Elizabethan English is unfamiliar to them, or that "shakespeare cant speak english lol!" I've personally never found a significant problem in understanding Shakespeare. Some phrases and references he uses I'm sure are lost in time, but the bulk of his work is easy for me to understand. Are those who can't understand Shakespeare just stupid?

A: I don't think it's a matter of intelligence. I've always believed it being a matter of language. We don't understand some of the Elizabethan English - it doesn't mean you're stupid. If it was 'tranlated' to modern English it would be easier to understand. The plot/story is basic human emotions - love, hate, revenge, etc. Just the delivery is unfamiliar.

What Shakespeare poem would you recommend me to read? by Nayney Q: I am planning on writing a book report on a biography of the poet William Shakespeare. For the report, I need to state my favorite poem written by that poet. But, unfortunately, there are so many poems written by him, and I am unable to comprehend and read them all. Are there any Shakespeare fans out there? Could you recommend a few poems for me? I like poems about loss, death, or some sort of sorrow. I feel they are most favorable.

A: I suggest you go with one of the sonnets. They are short and to the point. Sonnet #30 is a good one. I interpret as someone thinking about all the bad things that have happened to them, sinking more and more into a depression, but then at the end he remembers a dear friend and feels better. Or, you could go with Sonnet #150. It seems to be saying "Why do I love you? You are such a b*stard. Where do you get this power over me? Since you are so nasty, and I am better than you, you should really love me. Why don't you?" The sonnets can mean a lot of different things depending on how you interpret them, which is fun.

SHAKESPEARE??????????? by GuitarPrincess94 Q: ok, i have to do an english essay due and i'm clueless on what to write. so here's my topic, "why do we still read Shakespeare? and what makes Romeo and Juliet so timeless?"

A: we still read shakspeare because his words are great noone can compare his love for writing. he was passionate about every story he wrote especially Romeo and Juliet. what makes them so timeless is their love and their story, how they were so deeply in love with each other that they would die if one of them was killed, and they did. their love is what we now call love at first sight

SHAKESPEARe??? by Caro Q: for school, i need to find a "sonnet" by shakespeare to recite at this poetry thing tomorrow... i dont really know shakespeare, but can you think of any of his sonnets that are easy to read, or are short? THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! links would help too please!!!!

A: Romeo and Juliet, Act 2 on the balcony 3 paragraphs of lines. hope I helped.

shakespeare? by live4literature Q: From the play 'much to do about nothing' what does HEY NONNY-NONNY mean. i have been wondering and have been looking it up on the internet. but it is not much help. any one that can answer this thanks, and please try, it is one of those questions that stays at the back of your mind poping up in the middle of class when the teacher is putting you to sleep. LOL thanks again

A: There's a very, very good chance this is an old Druidic incantation (like Eenie Meenie Miny Moe or Fee Fie Fo Fum) or a chant that is supposed to be sung. I think its a nonsense phrase and the whole ditty is a SONG that is SUNG in the play: Sigh no more, ladies, sigh nor more; Men were deceivers ever; One foot in sea and one on shore, To one thing constant never; Then sigh not so, But let them go, And be you blithe and bonny; Converting all your sounds of woe Into. Hey nonny, nonny. Sing no more ditties, sing no mo, Or dumps so dull and heavy; The fraud of men was ever so, Since summer first was leavy. Then sigh not so, But let them go, And be you blithe and bonny, Converting all your sounds of woe Into. Hey, nonny, nonny. Shakespeare was full of word tricks like this.

Shakespeare? by dessy199213 Q: I need help on my homework... 1)What was the name of shakespeare's new theatre in Southwark? 2)Why did shakespeare retire? 3)Where did shakespeare probably first see plays, jousting, and entertainment on a grand (and royal) scale? 4)How did other playwrights, especially Robert Greene, react to Shakespeare's plays? 5)What probably drove Shakespeare tp write so many plays in 20 years? -if you know any of these answers or know where i can get the answers, please help!

A: I need help on my homework... 1)What was the name of shakespeare's new theatre in Southwark? It was a little tavern called Willy's Watering Hole. They sold drinks in the front and had a tiny black box theatre in the back. One of the rooms was painted red, because it was where the patrons could hire hookers. But the agents of the Queen discovered it, so they quickly repainted the room green. It became known as the Green Room. 2)Why did shakespeare retire? He wrote in his diary that he got tired of all the auditions, and there were women coming him pretending to be boys and wanting to act. It was a lot of trouble. He just got sick of it. But he was also running away from gambling debts. See below. 3)Where did shakespeare probably first see plays, jousting, and entertainment on a grand (and royal) scale? Very likely at Monte Carlo. It was a big vacation spot even back then, and Shakespeare was a notorious gambler. He once put up the entire Globe Theatre against one throw of the dice, in a bet with another Venetian gambler called Cilocchi. The resulting negotiations and their denouement formed the basis of his play, "The Merchant of Venice." Cilocchi was a member of the Mafia, and to avoid the vendetta, Shakespeare changed his name to Shylock and produced the play. 4)How did other playwrights, especially Robert Greene, react to Shakespeare's plays? Robert Greene was famous for his comments on the plays. He was not only a playwright, but a critic for the Elizabethan Post. In his review of Hamlet, Greene wrote: "Tis ludicrous in the extreme. The hero, we are told, can barely make up his mind. At times, his thought retardeth his actions. And the lad who plays Ophelia hath hair upon his lip and on his legs. Disgusting." 5)What probably drove Shakespeare tp write so many plays in 20 years? Shakespeare was a compulsive gambler. He wrote plays to pay his debts, especially to the Cilocchi Crew in Venice, who had strongarms in England. They killed Christopher Marlowe in a tavern over money. Plus Shakespeare hated to work with his hands. In his diary, he wrote revealingly, "How it doth make me laugh to think of all the work I ha' scaped, and all for the writing of so paltry a thing as a play. Hath it a body? No. Can it be seen? No, but only when it is enacted. Can a man take it with him? No. Can he digest it? No. It giveth nothing but idle joy, but so much more to he that writeth it, for he that writeth it never worketh a dayeth in his lifeth."
