  • @MacMcDonald Thank you Mac, for your participation in the course, and for your contribution to make it better. Indeed, in this piece (and also in the two other pieces to be shown in module 3 and 4, all of them by Prof. Fred Carden), the mechanism used to subtitle has been particular. It's not the usual transcription, as we do in other pieces originally in...

  • Dear Husyairi, thank you very much for your kind words. We are sure it will be a very enriching experience for all of us, and will help to build international networks and cooperation. Welcome to the course.

  • First Shakespeare Birthplace Trust visitor book is the object I'd like to chose, despite the enormous value of the rest. For me, it looks like a meeting point for shakesperian pilgrims, and I am one of those. It's like this very course: lovely designed to meet with peers all over the world, so exciting experience!

  • I'm a Spanish speaker, and I must confess that the matter of translation had not been an issue for me, until 6 or 7 years ago. In that moment, nothing particular happened, but I decided to make a research on the quality of translations into spanish made so far. I then realized that it has been a deep and long discussion to chose which translation (what...

  • I love the First Folio: it's mythical, it's powerful, it's strategic, it's art & work. Everything is condensed in that historical effort. Thank you guys, four hundred years after.

  • Caliban has one name and many senses: madness, evil, slavery... but also freedom, dignity, citizenship... Originally created by WS, the character has acquired many profiles and trends all through the ages. That's magic: from Shakespeare, to Renan, to Rodó, this name has named so strong and contradictory visions, it's really astonishing to verify the richness...

  • I would love to read Crudities by Thomas Croyat. Indeed, I've looked for it and I've found it in Google books "Reprinted from the Edition of 1611". Astonishing!

  • I would like to express my acknowledgement and gratitude to various peer learners, for their high quality observations and comments. Indeed, having read the last 6 or 7 comments, it seems to me that we are in the same boat, with equal concerns. The tragedy of Othello was written back in 1600s, but it's still nowadays so astonishing real... we should be worried...

  • I guess WS may have identified himself with main parts of every character. He was wise enough to know that we are a melting pot of human condition, and he would not be scared about it. Indeed, we may imagine Shakespeare in all those different profiles.

  • The image of Sir Irving playing Shylock seems very powerful to me: it introduces a counterculture style of peaceful and no prejudice coexistance. If today is so difficult to build these values, I can imagine 200 years ago. Good for you, Irving!

  • I like the First Folio: it's an image that comes to me from the very first days of my interest for Shakespeare's work, long long ago. Now this course have shown it to me: the mythical First Folio has become real to me.

  • WS may have changed some Holinshed facts in order to show what he wanted to show or the reflection he want to inspire. He surely would not be the echo of Holinshed in stage, but using historic facts to base the description of some aspects of human condition. Very well done indeed: his work still calls our attention and inspires us.

  • The same happens to me! Glad to come to know the real pronounciation, never too late. Thanks, Prof.

  • I admire the creative resources used by WS to cope with material limits, it has always been astonishing to me. The chorus asking the audience to free its imagination in order to recreate a huge war scenario on a 16 square mts. spot is a blessing of dramaturgia.

  • Lily's Grammar, but not being an aesthetic preference, it is rather a surprising example of the turbulences that should have moved children's learning experiences in XVI century.

  • The merry wives are so close that they seem "twins", both in ideas, temperament and visions of what they want and what they deserve.
    In deep contrast, the three daughters of King Lear are a very rich and diverse picture of human condition.
    I love both "models": the Windsor women more light & entertainment, the Lear women more depth and complexity.

  • From my very early years, I've known about Holinshed Chronicles, and this time I've seen them! It's quite curious to have a first hand link with that kind of mythical book, thanks to this course. Obviously, my favourite: it brings back my youth!

  • I was eager to enter this chapter: Macbeth is one of my favourites plays, and next Saturday will be performed here in Montevideo, in English, by "The Company". See: So, I wanted to know something else about it, and the contents you offered have been wonderful. Thank you.
    Something has...

  • Dear Jacqueline, I agree with you: today we have a deeper understanding of the complex origin of mental disease, anxiety or melancholy. But, on the other side, it is highly challenging to explore it. I have got a beautiful post-card on my desk, with a thought atributed to Vincent Van Gogh, saying (in french): "Il est difficile de se connaître soi-même" (it's...

  • Thank you Gail for your reference. Excellent!

  • My favourite quotation comes from "As you like": "All the world's a stage", and is my presentation in my Skype profile...

  • Thank you for this very enlightning bio. What shocked me most is the regular presence of some kind of trouble/tragedy: plague, legal affairs, family prosecution, childrens' death, theatre disasters... in that environment he saved himself from ignorance, poverty, isolation. And. in the meantime, he wrote the most wonderful pages about human condition, raised...

  • A really touching video, thank you! With my wife we visited the Birthplace in 2015: it was a joyful journey for us, but specially for me. I had never been there, although I always dreamt about it. I'm from Uruguay, very far away and very close to Stratford, and can tell that Shakespeare has been with me most of my life. When I was 16 I registered in a TV...
