I studied English as an A' Level and until then did not understand it. I did A'Level and watched Othello and cried my eyes out, well I'm of women flesh what do you expect! My husband being the son of the head of English at a secondary school, I must point out that my farther in law is very highly intelligent but useless at domestic chores. He and my hubby think you can be rehearsed in Shakespeare before the play and understand it yet I think you need lots of education before.

What is your thoughts.

The language has changed with time, which is why some Shakespeare is difficult.

Don't forget that it was written as much for the masses at the time as it was for the educated classes.

Depends on the interpretation. David Tennant did a superb version of Hamlet (set in the 1930s IIRC) on the BBC a few years ago. I'm not generally a big fan of the Bard, but this was genuinely good viewing.

The way it was taught in schools but pretty rubbish - but pottering through our English Dept the other day some of the work the students have done (cartoon strips, power points and websites) show they're really into it.

MacBeth's awesome..
