Well, it’s school time again. My 8 and 6yr old daughters went off this morning, their 4yr old brother heads off to preschool next week.
I am hoping that we’ll have some students (of whatever age) stop by to talk about Shakespeare, even if it’s just to get help with their homework. Sometimes our discussions end up with a fairly high barrier to entry, like you’ve got to be an experienced Shakespeare geek before you can play, and I want to make sure random visitors know that this is not the case.
I think that we should spend some more time on the basics – plot summaries, character sketches, that sort of thing. I suppose I can do whatever I want, it’s my site :), but I want to put up content that will appeal to a wide audience.
So, I’m casting for ideas. If you’re a student (and by that I mean high school, college, or what have you), what would you like to talk about? If you’re already a Shakespearean of whatever flavor, what do you think we should spend some time talking about? I’d like to strike a balance between content that is useful and welcoming to folks who are hesitant to dive into Shakespeare, without boring those that would much rather dig deeply into the trickier questions.
