I Feel Sorry for English Teachers
Is there anything you would change about this book?
Maybe change the name to "The Beginner's Guide to Advanced Shakespearean Scholarship and a Brief History of Printing in the Elizabethan Era." It would be more accurate a title, if harder to remember.
Which character – as performed by Robert Meldrum – was your favorite?
There are no characters to perform, but the material is presented about as clearly and concisely as one could hope.
Was Shakespeare: Bolinda Beginner Guides worth the listening time?
To anyone that wants a peek behind the curtain as to why the average English professor only thinks they know what they know about the Bard, this is a worthy read. It's a complex look at an already difficult subject, and it turns it inside out, explaining some things you never thought you'd need to know. But when you're done reading it, you definitely come away with a greater appreciation for the Bard and his work. It's best absorbed in small chunks so it can be processed.
