About "William Shakespeare"

  1. 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. Don t you kind of hate how we ve entered the decadent phase of wherein perhaps fifty percent or of the reviews written by non teenagers and non romancers are now naked and unabashed in their variously effective attempts at being arch, wry, meta, parodic, confessional, and or snarky Don t you kind of pine secretly, in the marrow of your gut s merry druthers for the good ol days of known then as GodFearingGoodlyReading when all reviews were uniformly plainspoken, merely utilitarian, unpretentious [...]

  4. Macbeth is Shakespeare s darkest play not only because of the restricted palette of its images shades of black varied with bright red blood but also because, in the play s world of warfare and witchcraft, its hero is half damned from the start Inured to violence, prone to superstition, Macbeth struggles with the hags predictions in the depth of his soul But his wife, fiercely ambitious, never struggles When he is haunted by his imagination, she is steadfast preparing everything, looking after th [...]

  5. Over the past year, I have branched out in my reading, attempting authors and genres that I had not discovered before Recently, I read Serena by Ron Rash in which the title character is compared to Lady Macbeth While Serena may be ruthless, I had never read the play so I could not contrast the two heroines Another of my reading goals this year is increasing my reading of classics Up until now, I had predominantly read modern classics, and found a worthy reason to read an older masterpiece So it [...]

Told by an idiot, full of sound and furySignifying nothing 1 To morrow, and to morrow, and to morrow , Creeps in this petty pace from day to day , To the last syllable of recorded time And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to dusty death Out, out, brief candle Life s but a walking shadow, a poor player , That struts and frets his hour upon the stage , And then is heard no It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and fury , Signifying nothing

  7. There are two reasons to love this play.The first reason is Lady Macbeth Man, that girl has got it goin on Have you ever found yourself in the running for, say, a new position that s opened up at your company, a position for which you along with one of your equally worthy colleagues, perhaps might qualify You may not have given much thought to your professional advancement before, but now that this promotion has been dangled before you, it has ignited a spark of ambitious desire Imagine the poss [...]

By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes Shakespeare s shortest tragedy is also one of his most powerful Macbeth s lust for power is compulsory, when confronted with the witches prophesy he is drawn into the tragedy as if he were a runaway train on tracks He must fulfill his ambition To morrow, and to morrow, and to morrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to dusty death Macbeth is [...]

  10. Be bloody, bold, and resolute Laugh to scornThe power of man, for none of woman bornShall harm Macbeth.Poor old Macbeth You were doomed from the very first act Your mistake was believing in hearsay, prophecy and half truths You were an excellent Thane, noble and strong But you were never meant to be King You should never have told your wife about the witches, that way the fires of your ambition would never have been fanned You only committed in halves to the witches advice You needed to go the f [...]

  13. 3.5 starsSo I listened to the Playaway audio version, and it was good Instead of someone reading the story, this one has a whole cast reading it like a play There s even sound effects insert booming thunder I know, right So, yeah, that was very cool Now, as far as the actual play goes Eh It was ok.Wait, wait, wait Before you tell me I m an idiot debatable , and that this was the best thing since sliced cheese, let me remind you that I was listening to this sucker, so it s not like I could study [...]

  14. My Macbeth s second read.Written in an economy prodigy, one of Shakespeare s shorter pieces, based on accounts of wars between noble lineages in England, Scotland and Ireland, Macbeth is one of the author s bloodiest tragedies Of the protagonists only two survive, it is the tragedy par excellence of human ambition The tragedy in Scotland tells the story of Macbeth, one of King Duncan s generals, successful in his fight with the rebels He is visited by three witches who predict their fate as futu [...]

  16. While nature remains an impassive witness that blossoms with wounded beauty and treacherous storms in King Lear , it embodies a mystic underworld rich with esoteric tradition and almost sacrilegious imagery in Macbeth.Apparitions, ghosts and witches dance at the tune of lyrical prophecies and besiege the open plains of Scotland during nighttime Only Macbeth hears their infantile incantations The weyward sisters, hand in hand,Posters of the sea and land,Thus go do about, about.Thrice to thine and [...]

  17. A reread, a one that disappointed me a freaking lot Once again I really want to believe that humans are better than this Or have been at some historical point Then, bam , and this arrives on my reading stack and proves to me that people have always been fucked up in their respective heads Thanks a freaking lot And here I was building my dreamcastle and getting ready to wear some rose glasses This is not about a good marriage This is about how some people can instigate each other to do weird shit [...]

  18. Book ReviewAh Macbeth good old, dark and devious Macbeth We read this as part of a 10th grade AP English course and watched a movie to compare the differences between the two versions Everyone has his or her own take on Macbeth I rather enjoyed the play back in high school and then again in college during my English major It s nearly 500 years old Even by today s standards, it has some of the most fun drama you could imagine It s sort of like a reality TV show, don t you think Witches Devious wi [...]

  20. Witches, superstition and mysticism create one of the Bard s fantastical of plays Add to it the very real, human elements of self doubt, manipulation, betrayal and soul tormenting regret and you get one of the most enjoyable, poignant pieces of literature of all time.Perhaps only Hamlet reaches a higher level of human suffering encapsulated Yes, Lear comes close I love the hell out Shakespeare s most popular, most well known play, but Hamlet s interminable introspection tends to mire the spirit [...]

  21. rereading this in preparation for my next WIP Macbeth is my all time favorite of Shakespeare s plays which, to be clear, isn t that high of a compliment considering I ve only read five in total and didn t enjoy most of those BUUUUT I swear I am not exaggerating, this one is really fucking fantastic There s something about the eerie atmosphere of magic, prophecy, greed, and violence that sets it apart from the others It s dramatic, intriguing, and mysterious, and reads almost like a fantasy nove [...]

  22. Still my favourite Shakespeare play I think so.Language wise, Shakespeare is always a master He invented many a word and phrase that we all use even today, centuries later But some of the stories and characters are better than others Macbeth, in my opinion, sits near the top of the pile The witches and their fateful prophecies, the bloody betrayals, the madness of Lady Macbeth, and the tragedy of Macbeth himself Bringing about his own prophesised downfall, step by step Nothing short of genius.

  23. This was really interesting, and the audiobook I listened to was GREAT, but it wasn t my favorite Shakespeare Maybe I m just not a fan of some tragedies In Macbeth, everyone is just the worst, but it s very interesting to read about them even if I don t love it.I want to try reading it again seeing it, but reading it so spread out and not actually seeing it played out probably hurt my rating.

  24. Stars, hide your fires Let not light see my black and deep desires William Shakespeare, MacbethI haven t read this since I was in HS Loved it Probably my biggest complaint is how slim it is But, Shakespeare is at the top of his game Based on an account of the reigns of Duncan and Makbeth in the Chronicals of Scotland in Raphael Holinshed s Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland, it also spins into myth and alludes a bit to Seneca s tragedies This is an efficient play It is a sword, a knife [...]

  26. After a discussion of this play that went over 100 comments, a review seems at once superfluous and necessary to give greater exposure to an excellent conversation One of the best things about is that it provides a forum to hash out discrepancies of opinion thoughtfully and passionately, so that our own feelings and understandings can be challenged by and challenging for others I think what you ll find below is a perfect example of this, enacted by people who care deeply about Shakespeare and ab [...]
