I am not, nor do I have any intention of becoming, a Shakespeare scholar. I wasn’t even an English major. I am just a person who appreciates Shakespeare, who thinks his works are often misrepresented (at least in the US) as High Culture when they are really entertainment meant for the masses. Anything written here is purely my opinion, and while I may consult (and cite) experts from time to time, I do not intend this to be a scholarly interpretation of anything. It’s just a venue for my opinions.
ETA Please read this.
I would be delighted to have thoughtful, reasonable comments. Please don’t flame me. I don’t care if you disagree with me; just defend it. If I have made a mistake about something or you feel I have reached an erroneous conclusion, please tell me (politely). And very occasional fangirling (or fanboying) is okay, but I would like to try to keep that to a minimum.
That’s Not Me
After I began this blog, I discovered that there was another blog on blogspot with the same name written by someone who called herself TSC. I am not that person, nor am I trying to represent or impersonate that person in this blog or in any other media platform. As that blog has not been updated since 2008, I’m going to stick with this name. I will deal with any objections if and when they arise.
Really? These plays are 400 years old; I think the statute of limitations on spoilers has run out. If you REALLY do not want to be spoiled by anything I write, read the play or seek out a performance or movie. Or just Google it. I will provide links when I can.
