Everyone knows of Shakespeare…right?

Do we really need an introduction to Shakespeare?

Shakespeare is the world’s most famous playwright!

However, as his plays are written in Elizabethan English and in verse, most people find it rather tricky to overcome that barrier of language and discover the treasures within all his writings. It’s not easy to get the hang of all the ‘forsooths’ and ‘wherefores’ without a bit of help. That’s why an introduction to Shakespeare for kids of all ages is vital. These classics are captivating and create an interest in classics at a young age.

Shakespeare made me seriously fall in love with words and poetry when I first read Romeo and Juliet, and Hamlet as a teenager in high school.

One of my favorites is Hamlet. I loved moody Hamlet and his dilemma about whether to calmly accept his ‘the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’ or whether to ‘take arms’ and fight his fate. Anyone would admired the jesters, speaking the truth and poking fun at hypocrites as much as I did. Without doubt, I adored the fierce, romantic language and philosophies about life.

Did you know?

Shakespeare invented over 1,700 words that we still use today – ‘moonbeam’, ‘amazement’, ‘lonely’, ‘bloodstained’ and ‘gloomy’ being a few. He has phrases too – ‘wearing your heart on your sleeve’, being as ‘dead as a doornail’, or a ‘sorry sight’ – these were all penned by him first.
