Approach to Shakespeare
A&C Black, 2015 M04 10 - 104 pages
For teachers, this handbook provides a means of introducing Shakespeare to students who are not yet ready to tackle a whole play and, at the same time, uses Shakespeare as a source for understanding the history of language. Each of the scenes in this collection (encompassing romance, battle, slapstick and horror) is a short, independent drama, and is followed by a set of questions about issues raised and the language used. The work offers suggestions for literary and theatrical practical work.

Page 86 - By the apostle Paul, shadows to-night Have struck more terror to the soul of Richard, Than can the substance of ten thousand soldiers, Armed in proof, and led by shallow Richmond.
Page 85 - My conscience hath a thousand several tongues, And every tongue brings in a several tale, And every tale condemns me for a villain. Perjury, perjury, in the high'st degree; Murder, stern murder in the dir'st degree; All several sins, all us'd in each degree, Throng to the bar, crying all, 'Guilty, guilty!
Page 30 - A merry note, While greasy Joan doth keel the pot. When all aloud the wind doth blow, And coughing drowns the parson's saw, And birds sit brooding in the snow, And Marian's nose looks red and raw, When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl, Then nightly sings the staring owl...
