I am trying to get a handle on how to read Shakespeare because I want to. When I read Shakespeare, I start to Shakespeare speak. I ordered a book this morning to help me figure out how to read the lesser known plays. I suppose this is Karin giving herself a crash course in Shakespeare, even if it takes a year. I can't even remember the name of the play I am reading now....pause to check. I think it is called "Two Gentleman" and now I am currently getting lost in what is going on.
I am sure this is too lofty a goal to try to work on right now but hey, I am tired of being ignorant of all things Shakespeare. I only know a little. My high school English teacher, who I loved and sadly can't remember her name, was awesome at helping us understand what we were reading. I have carried that reading with me to other books read and I also get to understand some of the more subtle jokes in movies etc. That seems like a fun reason to read the plays right? Hopefully I don't look back at this post months from now and realize I forgot to keep reading them. Here goes!
