Challenge Sign-Up Post: Shakespeare Reading Challenge

Shakespeare Reading Challenge 2011

1. All plays must be read between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011. Anything begun before that cannot be included.
2. Audio versions are also acceptable but all plays must be unabridged.
3. You don't need to list your plays ahead of time but you may, if you'd like.

I’m going for level 1 Puck, that’s 4 plays. I make lists so here is mine:

The Tempest

Henry VIII

Hamlet

Much Ado About Nothing

The Tempest is currently being performed at the Royal Theatre in Stockholm so I might go see that as well (it ends its run in February). I will still probably read it and compare, especially since the play will be in Swedish.

Hi Zee,

Welcome to the challenge! I'm curious about how Shakespeare does in translation--please keep me posted!

Looks like fun! I just finished Hamlet and intend to review it soon. It's a stick-with-you story, definitely!

I've never read Henry VIII, but as someone who's read a lot of Shakespeare (I teach high school English), I really enjoy Henry IV Part I and Henry IV Part II. Just a thought! :)
