Inspired by Melissa at Avid Reader’s Musings and also, embarrassed by my complete lack of progress for my 2014 Shakespeare Challenge, I have decided to launch a new project for myself! As if, I needed another, right?
My Shakespeare Project is my attempt to read through all of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. And I’m giving myself no time limit, so there will be no pressure …….. well, maybe just a little bit of pressure. This project will also help me to check some books off my Classics Club list, which is always welcome.
I really like how Melissa has challenged herself to read a play, see a performance and watch a movie of the play. It gives you a much richer experience, and I hope to do this as well. You can check out my list here.
So wish me luck as I embark on an Elizabethan voyage with the Bard. Bon voyage!
As Sophia mentions in her post, she likes the Folger editons, which I’ve realized that I like more than I had indicated in a below comment, but I still prefer the RSC (Royal Shakespeare Company) editions if you have some experience with Shakespeare. For beginners I recommend the No Fear Shakespeare books. These have a limited number of plays available, but they do contain Elizabethan English on one side and modern English on the other which is very helpful for beginners.
