I`m a retired high school English teacher from central Wisconsin. I taught Shakespeare for years and am very familiar with his writing style, his themes, his sonnets, and most of his plays. I taught Julius Caesar, King Lear, Richard the Third, and A Midsummer Night`s Dream for years. I`ve memorized many of the lines from these plays and I know many sonnets by heart. I`d be glad to respond to questions regarding Shakespeare`s life, works, and times if anyone desired such information.
I have a master's degree in education and I take most pride in having ENJOYED teaching for over 30 years. Not everyone can honestly say that. I coached undefeated high school soccer teams for fun too. I like public relations work and have served on P.R. committees for most of my professional life. I continue to do so in retirement.
Shakespeare was a master at creating life-like characters. He could have written a textbook on philosophy and psychology;instead he wrote plays to accomplish the same thing.
I continue to both teach and learn by serving as an "Allexpert" volunteer. I thrill at knowing that people are studying to enjoy the great works of literature as I did at one time. I want to help them "find the joy---AND the truth."
I suspect that lines from Shakespeare's works have generated more book and movie titles than any other writer's lines. It may not be so.
Scholors attempt to prove that Shakespeare's works were actually achievements of OTHER writers of the Elizabethan period. I admit that there are reasons to suspect that this is true, yet I don't WANT to believe it. A highly perceptive person COULD teach himself what Shakespeare learned and put this knowledge into his diverse works.
