    About "William Shakespeare"

    1. William Shakespeare

      William Shakespeare baptised 26 April 1564 was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world s pre eminent dramatist He is often called England s national poet and the Bard of Avon or simply The Bard His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed often than those of any other playwright.Shakespeare was born and raised in Stratford upon Avon Scholars believe that he died on his fifty second birthday, coinciding with St George s Day.At the age of 18 he married Anne Hathaway, who bore him three children Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith Between 1585 and 1592 he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of the playing company the Lord Chamberlain s Men, later known as the King s Men He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later Few records of Shakespeare s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his sexuality, religious beliefs, and whether the works attributed to him were written by others.Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1590 and 1613 His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the sixteenth century Next he wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest examples in the English language In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights Many of his plays were published in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime, and in 1623, two of his former theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare s.Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day, but his reputation did not rise to its present heights until the nineteenth century The Romantics, in particular, acclaimed Shakespeare s genius, and the Victorians hero worshipped Shakespeare with a reverence that George Bernard Shaw called bardolatry In the twentieth century, his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship and performance His plays remain highly popular today and are consistently performed and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the world.According to historians, Shakespeare wrote 37 plays and 154 sonnets throughout the span of his life Shakespeare s writing average was 1.5 plays a year since he first started writing in 1589 There have been plays and sonnets attributed to Shakespeare that were not authentically written by the great master of language and literature.

    2. The Comedy of Errors is perfect, but it is perfection of a low order In this early play, Shakespeare sets out to master the complex mechanisms and simple humor of farce, and succeeds completely It is enjoyable and well crafted like a really good episode of The Beverly Hillbillies or Three s Company and represents an important early step on Shakespeare s journey as an absolute master of drama in all its forms.

    3. This play is so light it practically floats, a marvelous, silly absurdity of mistaken identity that will put a smile on your face even the cranky y laugh The plot was old when Shakespeare wrote it back in the 1590 s Still not just a set of twins in this comedy but two, the writer wanted to double the amusement in the convoluted story Antipholus born in the Greek settled city of Syracuse in Sicily, in ancient times no specific year stated but somewhere between the start of the Christian era and t [...]

    4. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to The Comedy of Errors, a comedy seriously, did you think with that title it was one of his tragedies oh my published in 1594 by William Shakespeare So who knew Shakespeare invented the humor of mistaken identity Wow Think of this as a cross between any daytime television soap opera, Dumb and Dumber and Dude, Where s My Car And if you don t know what that clip is from, you have no watched the right kinds of movies So go figure it out and come back to chat That said t [...]

    5. If she lives till doomsday, she ll burn a week longer than the whole world William Shakespeare, The Comedy of Errors, Act III.2Look It isn t brilliant Shakespeare, but it is worth the price of admission for just the banter, puns, etc There really isn t a major character that jumps out Perhaps, that is due to the constraints of the premise, but anyway It was 80 pages of drama and I rather enjoyed it I m just not sure how much of it will stick Like Hamlet, Othello, etc years from now If you are lo [...]

    6. Love it.Twins Comedy in every scene was flawless and Hilarious Extravagant comic Drama by The Legend.Words were enough to set up the drama.Beauty of writing comprehensively has seen as well the tempo of the drama.I ve enjoyed it thoroughly.

    7. After the brilliance of The Taming of the Shrew with its pitch perfect comedy of cruelty, The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare s likely follow up, is a let down that will probably appeal to uncouth readers with puritanical leanings so than to enlightened and cultured readers, such as myself TCoE is a slapstick farce involving a pair of twins as in an actual pair of twins separated at birth and the zaniness that ensues when the two sets each sporting a nobleman and a bawdy servant paths cross in Ep [...]

    8. So I was having dinner with Garry Kasparov and there was a check tablecloth It took him two hours to pass me the salt So I said Do you want a game of Darts , he said OK then , I said Nearest to bull starts He said Baa , I said Moo , he said You re closest So I went down the local supermarket, I said I want to make a complaint, this vinegar s got lumps in it , he said Those are pickled onions I saw this bloke chatting up a cheetah, I thought he s trying to pull a fast one But I m in great mood to [...]

    9. Bug n ikinci defa okudum ve bir defa daha ok e lenerek keyif alarak okudum Baz sahnelerde kahkaha atmamak i in kendimi zor tuttum Hi izlemedim ama okurken bu kadar keyif al n yorsa izlemesine doyum olmamal.Esinlendi i tiyatro olan Plautus un eserini de okumu tum fakat kesinlikle Shakespeare kendine zg bir dokunu katm.

    10. A story about two pair of twins 4 people in total and mistaken identities So, it s a comedy about the errors of not distinguishing between them hence the title This is not one of Shakespeare s best, but I enjoyed some parts It made me laugh out loud at some points, which I guess is a good thing because this is than 4 centuries old The plot itself is ridiculous, but I don t think Shakespeare was going for something complex here.

    11. This play relies on a good deal of violence for its humor, which upon reflection kind of makes me uncomfortable Particularly because Shakespeare s timing coupled with the absurdity of the scenario twin brothers separated at birth with the same name each have a twin slave separated at birth with the same name is actually pretty funny At least I think it is, but I also grew up laughing every time Bud Abbot slapped Lou Costello, so I m probably conditioned to enjoy this stuff That is, provided I do [...]

    12. Read this as the first out of ten Shakespeare plays for my class And I can already tell it s going to be rough, because my professor provides very little on topic discussion about what we re reading, so it s pretty much going to be up to me to read and analyze these on my own.Honestly, reading Shakespeare is a lot easier than I remember, so this play was actually pretty simple to understand The only issue, however, is that this play s plot is about mistaken identities, which made the characters [...]

    13. I read this play again for The Bard of the Month group on I enjoyed it, but appreciated the comedic timing and overall confusion by watching the BBC version with Roger Daltrey as Dromio Also noticeable with the dramatization was the roles of the various women I was particularly struck by the Abbess s admonition of Adriana.

    15. Click here for William Shakespeare Disclaimer The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare was a horrendous and bastardized version of a typical Shakespearean comedy So many errors of mistaken identity that made the circumstances confused and dispositions ill toward characters that didn t get resolved until the end of the play made it most excruciating to read It s almost as if Shakespeare had to churn out a play in a short period of time and he took A Midsummer Night s Dream and Much Ado About N [...]

    16. What a wonderful play this was And undoubtedly my quickest read ever It was hilarious and I was laughing aloud all along The key theme was estrangement of twin brothers and chaos that arise in their mistaken identity It looks like Shakespeare loved the theme of mistaken identity which he later used in his comedy, Twelfth Night All in all it was a wonderful read and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    17. Egeon, a traveler from Syracuse, travels to Ephesus in search of his missing twin son who he hasn t seen since the boy was an infant However, since the cities of Syracuse and Ephesus are having a HUGE quarrel, anyone traveling to Ephesus from Syracuse is either 1 sentenced to death, or 2 must pay a thousand mark fine At the start of the play Egeon, has accepted his fate death but tells the Duke, or ruler of Ephesus, what he s doing there in the first place The Duke, a compassionate man, yet one [...]

    18. Two years ago I gave this 3 stars and called it confusing I am giving 5 Stars to this particular audio version the Arkangel recording with David Tennant, Brendan Coyle, and Sorcha Cusack and her sister Niamh This is a truly delightful version of this play The Arkangel music annoyed me in The Two Gentlemen of Verona but in this play the same composer captures the inanity of the play in the music This is the second book in this particular Shakespearean canon and as always I find that Shakespeare b [...]

    19. So funny So many stories today seem to be based off this good original set up of twins being mixed up, not to mention funny representatives of family interactions I listened to a BBC recording of this and despite initial misgivings, it was totally understandable.

    20. A Comedy of Errors holds a special place in Shakespeare s oeuvre It is believed to be his first play it is one of two Shakespeare plays that observe the classical unities and it is Shakespeare s shortest play You can add to this list, Shakespeare s silliest play, since A Comedy of Errors amply merits this superlative.To enjoy this work, the viewer must be an expert in suspending disbelief That there be two sets of twins, bestowed with the same names, who happened to be dressed in the same clothe [...]

    22. I to the world am like a drop of water That in the ocean seeks another drop of water Who, falling there to find his fellow forth, Unseen, Inquisitive, Confounds himself.

    23. When I was firt introduced to this play I was waiting for the play to start during the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland I was excited to finally be able to see a play of Shakespeare s that wasn t all tragedy not to say that those plays aren t bad, but a person can only have so much tragedy on their mind When the lights came up and a hispanic guitarest started blabbering on in spanish, I couldn t help but smile Obviously Shakespeare hadn t written this play in spanish, so I couldn t help bu [...]

    24. Teach me, dear creature, how to think and speak Lay open to my earthy gross conceit, Smother d in errors, feeble, shallow, weak, The folded meaning of your words deceit.

    25. In my quest to read the complete works of William Shakespeare, I found this to be most enjoyable It was such an amusing farce which I read with a smile on my face at times I also found this play a bit easier to understand compared to some of the others Story wise, there s not that much plot or action but I still think this is a pretty good play.4.25 stars.

    26. A farcical case of mistaken identity19 April 2014 Fortunately I ended up seeing this play performed last year by one of the few Australian Shakespearian companies so I have a better understanding of what is going on than if I had just read the play outright However, it is also fortunate that Youtube has all of the BBC editions of Shakespeare s plays along with quite a few other plays , however when I typed in Comedy of Errors into the Youtube search engine I discovered that I hit on a huge numbe [...]
