    About "William Shakespeare"

      • William Shakespeare

        William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

    2. Oh well, Shakespeare! What do you expect me to make of this, Sir? Me, being a Kate, but not starved, tortured, and humiliated into obedience, submission, complete surrender?How shall I read this play, that made me literally feel a knot in my stomach, that filled me with nausea, anger, and sadness? My first reaction was to think: “Thank you, Sir, that’s enough. I’ll have none of this anymore, you may be my literary hero, but this is TOO MUCH!”Then all those other authors came to mind, tho [...]

I also have a violent streak and beat up my sister all the time because s [...]


    4. Re-reading the play this time, I liked it a little better than I thought I would. I predicted that the brutal treatment of Katharine by Petruchio would ruin the play for me, but it didn't. From the induction involving Christopher Sly, the text of "The Taming of the Shrew" is full of so many transformations (tinker to lord, page to lady, servant to rich young man, rich young man to teacher of grammar, rich suitor to music teacher, wandering scholar to prosperous merchant, etc.) as well as so many [...]


    5. I really don’t buy the irony. Here is a play by a very young Shakespeare trying to appeal to the masses; here is a play that purposely appeals to the misogynistic beliefs of its early audiences, and I really don’t like it. This is what should have happened at the end: Katherine:I’m a Shrew; I’m a woman who stands upFor herself and for her sisters alikeI have a voice; I will not be tamed byMen who think themselves overlords! Instead we have a rather meek speech in which a broken woman who [...]


    6. Book ReviewThe Taming of the Shrew is one of William Shakespeare's earliest plays and comedies, produced in the mid-1590s. We read this play in 8th or 9th grade as one of the introductions to Shakespeare in an English course. I'd rank this somewhere in the middle in terms of his comedies as well as works in general. It's got several funny moments (ironic humor) but it's also a bit weaker in terms of style and hidden meanings among all the words and characters. The plot is strong, and copied by m [...]


    7. Taming of the Shrew was, I think, one of Shakespeare’s better comedies, though not one of his better plays. In fairness, I think I’d like to see this performed and I may enjoy it much more, and a wiser person than I has observed that plays are meant to be seen, not just read. I would perhaps amend that observation that to be fully appreciated, a play should be seen AND read. A clever producer could have fun with this antiquated misogyny.This explores betrothal and arranged marriages more tha [...]


    8. A practical joke can be carried to the extreme, in the northern Italian city of Padua, in the time of the glorious Renaissance, a poor intoxicated man ( a tramp in fact), strangely named Christopher Sly, is found by an amused nobleman, outside a filthy tavern, sleeping on the dirt, in the street, people walking by, ignoring the unfortunate human. Until this Lord has an idea, take him to his impressive mansion and pretend that the lush, is really the owner, exchange identities, the nobleman becom [...]


    9. I was curious about the controversy generated by the dynamics between genders that academics and readers have discussed for years in this early romantic comedy, which brought some memorable moments that hilariously reminded me of Much ado about nothing.Sarcasm, bickering and jocular scenes abound in this play, but there is an extra dose of provocative innuendo. Even the title is condemnable for its lack of political correctness, as it implies that Kate, the female protagonist and eldest daughter [...]


    10. They say TV and video games are a bad influence, well, this play has been corrupting minds since 1590!It's crap like this that makes people think that playing mind games with one another is the correct path to true love. It says that lying about who you are and what your intentions are, as well as flat out pretending to be something you're not, that is the way, says The Taming of the Shrew, to win love and warp a person into who you want them to be. Poppycock, I say! Hold on pleasejust give me a [...]


    11. As with all of Shakespeare's plays, there's always a different interpretation always handy at foot, be it a woman's duty to place her hand under her husband's foot or not.As it is, though, I can both be supremely annoyed with a society that demands that women be always so obedient, culturally, and be wickedly satisfied that Kate and Petruchio have worked out a true meeting of the minds and wills in such a way as to transcend all other's expectations.There's a little something for everyone in thi [...]

    13. I’m not even kidding. This play is more violent than King Lear. True, nobody dies in it—after all, it is a comedy (although whether you find it funny or not is a different matter)—but it is violent nonetheless. You know that sick feeling that manifests itself in the pit of your stomach when watching scenes of domestic violence or otherwise abusive relationships in movies or on TV? Isn’t it funny then how dormant that feeling seems to be when watching instead scenes of bloodbath-laden hom [...]


    14. It makes some people feel better to believe that the rampant misogyny in this play is supposed to be ironic. Well, whatever. I still don't much enjoy watching a woman having her spirit broken down until she's nothing but a shell of what she once was.


    15. "I am ashamed that women are so simpleTo offer war where they should kneel for peace,Or seek for rule, supremacy, and sway,When they are bound to serve, love, and obey."-- William Shakespeare, Taming of the Shrew, Act V, 2The second play in my First Folio journey is 'The Taming of the Shrew'. The obvious discussion surrounding this play has to be Shakespeare's views, as expressed in this play, of women. I think any defense of Shakespeare's attitudes are silly. Shakespeare was a contradiction, es [...]

    17. The Taming of the Shrew is definitely not the late 16th century proto-feminist masterpiece you’ve been hankering for, but what it lacks in positive portrayals of the “fairer sex,” is overshadowed by the bounding leaps of comic gusto on display in every line of verse. Simply put, TTotS is a caustic farce of the war between the sexes (the “merry war” that, due to inbreeding and lack of imagination, would eventually devolve into the barely functioning aborted mutant that is the modern day [...]


    18. I think it can go undisputed how misogynistic this is, but in a way, its ability to anger me was impressing? Idk. The content sucked, but I think it sucked for a reason. I don't think Shakespeare hates women and thinks they're inferior to men, yet I wish this had more of a comeback arc. I loved when Katharina was sassy and angry and at the end of the book she ended up so subdued, and I was waiting for her to snap back, but she never did. I'm disappointed.


    19. This is a deeply troubling and often frankly misogynistic play, and I'm not here to defend those aspects of it. However I saw a version of it years ago that turned the misogyny on its head in a way that I thought was interesting, and perhaps truer to the many levels on which Shakespeare worked. It was a "Shakespeare in the Park" production, in New York, starring Morgan Freeman and Tracey Ullman, and you can imagine how fantastic that was. The best part was how they did the end of the play--that [...]


    20. Шекспировите комедии най-вероятно представляват ситкомите на Ренесанса. На фона на поставяните мистерии и морални пиеси – примерно днешните новинарски емисии и предавания за политика – те са били нещо като шарената кръпка в Елизабетинския театър. В комедиите на „добрия [...]


    21. I can see why this play is little appreciated nowadays - it runs so completely counter to the modern notions of "gender equality" and feminism. I freely confess that Petruchio's methods with Katharina are rough (in an indirect manner; from passionate reviews I expected him to beat her every day before breakfast, but in fact he uses crazier, more shrewish means). On the other hand, she frankly deserves what she gets. She was not "strong-minded" - she was downright nasty, and the way Petruchio bri [...]


    22. The feminist issues can be answered with the simplest argument that there is no knowing Shakespeare's intentions. The best of his characters are always doing most villianious things - Shylock Othello, Caliban, Brutus, Iago etc. The fact that they come to a bad end might only show Shakespeare's realism. But amid all prejudice that other characters show to them, the dislikable things they do and bad end they meet; they are still the ones that one feels most attracted towards. Kate is no different [...]


    23. Thank goodness that’s overThe Taming of the Shrew starts off purely as a noble man playing a prank on a drunkard in a bar. It’s a mean joke, making out this drunkard has always been a noble man his entire life, making out as though nothing has ever changed. It seems funny at first and has made me laugh plenty of times – although some of that may be down to my own humour of finding the way Shakespeare writes (phrases such as Sir! Give him head!) – but it is enjoyable.Quickly, a play arise [...]


    24. Talk not to me. I shall go sit and weepTill I can find occasion of revenge.Like The Merchant of Venice, whose anti-Semitism makes us squirm, this play presents a sticky problem to modern audiences: was Shakespeare a misogynist? And it must be said that the misogyny present in this play is more difficult to excuse than the prejudice against poor Shylock, since Shakespeare is not clearly in sympathy with the titular shrew, Katherine, as he is with the Venetian merchant. So just as bardolaters have [...]


    25. To celebrate William Shakespeare on his birthday in April, my plan is to locate a staging of six plays. I'll listen to and watch these on my MacBook, following along to as much of the original text as is incorporated by the production. Later, I'll read the entire play in the modern English version. A good friend I've had since high school recommended this system to me and it's been a very good system for delighting the mind in Shakespeare.Next up, The Taming of the Shrew. Because none of Shakesp [...]


    26. There was a reason why I chose not to post that many updates with this play. Because they all would have included some F bombs. This play is super messed up and I cannot believe that anyone watches this and thinks, hey this is funny and so romantic. It is not. Well something nice first. I am very happy that I had the Folger's version which included notes on what certain words or phrases meant, and an explanation prior to certain scenes to explain them to me. Now onto something not so nice.This w [...]


    27. The Taming of the Shrew has to be one of the most difficult of Shakespeare’s plays for a modern woman to appreciate. I don’t know about you, but I found it difficult to watch an independent young woman being “tamed” into a Stepford wife. I went to the cinema to see a version filmed at Stratford, Ontario (Canada’s Shakespeare capitol) and I have to say that they did it extremely well. The drunken tinker at the beginning of the play became a drunken blogger, being belligerent in the audi [...]


    28. "Why, there's a wench. Kiss me, Kate."This is terribly sexist and I should have been appalled but I absolutely loved it! It was really funny.


    29. It was okay.I know the basic story, as many people do. I've seen the famous movie with Richard Burton and Liz Taylor. I 'studied' this particular play in college, too, and overall I am not overly impressed.It's the story of a young man who wants a rich wife, but the wife he wants has an older sister who must be 'married off' first. (Typical trope, seen in many a story, movie, etc and this was already a well-known trope in Shakespeare's time, too.) So clever machinations ensue in which another ma [...]
