Abigail, oh, you're absolutely right. Knowing the background and personality of one who dabbles in the arts is crucial when attempting to recreate their works. I agree that, with this thinking, you're on the right path. ^^ Although, I had no idea how many pieces Shakespeare had actually written! Ohmygosh there are so many!! You certainly have your work cut out for you. :u

Michi, it really is! So far we've read my favorite two plays (Taming of the Shrew and Titus Adronicus, though Merry Wives of Windsor is running up there now) and starting next week we're starting a modern rewrite of Merry Wives. I'm so excited! I think learning so much about Shakespeare and how to read him will let me really learn how to perform/showcase him.

Abigail, that's incredible! I bet that will be fascinating, one heck of an adventure. c:

Tackling an Advance Shakespeare class this semester for my English degree and am hoping to do a Shakespeare play in the next couple of years when I start my theater degree. Gotta love the Bard <3

"Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves that we are underlings.
Brutus and Caesar: what should be in that 'Caesar'?
Why should that name be sounded more than yours?
Write them together, yours is as fair a name;
Sound them, it doth become the mouth as well;
Weigh them, it is as heavy; conjure with 'em,
'Brutus' will start a spirit as soon as 'Caesar.'"
