Description

The girls were excited to revisit passages from plays we've studied, but since we've only read ten of his plays together, there were many passages that they didn't have any context for. Wisdom, wit and wonder and the full richness of the English language to chime with the seasons and enjoy throughout the year. The format really allows Shakespeare to be a lot more digestible to people who aren't the biggest readers of Shakespeare a bit like myself. Ma non mi aspettavo di innamorarmi anche dei commenti e delle idee di Allie Eisiri, esperta redattrice e, appunto, commentatrice delle opere: analisi semplici, incisive al punto giusto e che, insieme alle belle parole di William Shakespeare, aggiungevano dettagli e curiosità, facendo solo sempre più entrare nella mente di una tale produzione artistica, che ha toccato ogni livello, dal sociale, al culturale, al familiare all’economico, tutto in linea ma anche anti-convenzionale all’epoca.
