Meet the Bard
Kick back with Shakespeare and get to know who he is, where he came from, and why, exactly, we think heâ€™s so cool. Topics covered include a brief history of Shakespeare and his use of language (including the basics of scansion and meter), how his works relate to modern day, and more. If thereâ€™s a specific play youâ€™d like us to focus on, just let us know!
