Twisted Tales from Shakespeare

Having blown a fuse together with introductions uestions appendices and other critical apparatus inte. In brief Shakespeare s greatest hits told by an English major who s only sort of paid attention and never leaves a pun unturnedThoughts This is pretty relentlessly silly but it still gets at the crux of the plays or at least makes good points about traditional interpretations of them It s not something I d recommend to a Shakespeare newbie unless I m pairing it with the plays in uestion simply because the stories don t uite line up some of the jokes will fly over the head of someone who doesn t know the stories already and I m a bit of a Shakespeare purist But it s still fun and entertaining and holds up surprisingly well considering it s sixty something years oldThe humour and satire here are a mix of pithy uips puns and deliberate misunderstandings of Shakespeare s words and modernisations of some of the scenes So you get Juliet withdraws her lips and comments about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern being completely interchangeable and Lysander has an aunt who lives in a town some distance away where the marriage laws are lax than Athens The town isn t named but it s probably in Nevada Taken a bit at a time they re worthy of a snort or an eye roll but reading the whole book with a joke every line or two got wearingAnother note I think I ve read this before actually It s from my dad s library and he loaned it to me over Christmas and I have vague memories of reading a book like this in high school If I did I think I found it funnier then so slightly bored teenage book nerd is probably the perfect audience On the other hand I have a good memory as a rule and the fact that I m not sure if I ve read this or not well That says something tooIn sum this lasted me an amusing few days but I m probably going to find it pretty forgettable in the long run I d rec it if you re interested or you happen to like Shakespeare and see it secondhand somewhere but it s not really something to rush out and get English teachers will probably find a winner though610To bear in mind The humour is very 1950s so not every joke lands well on 21st century ears Especially some of the jokes about the women
