Shakespeare Challenge

This challenge is about William Shakespeare. Your challenge (if you choose to accept it) is to read 4 (four) books about Shakespeare. Not just the plays but anything about him.

You can read fiction, non-fiction, anything that supports his being the author, anything that does not support him being the author. If you want to read the plays and/or the sonnets, that's fine too.

This challenge will run for 6 months, from January 1st to June 30th, 2008. Crossovers are acceptable.


If anyone wants to join this blog, please email Historia with your email address, and I will send you an invite.

One new book to try is "The Shakespeare Diaries: A Fictional Autobiography," that is actually a mixture of fact and fiction with fascinating insights and conjectures.

I'm in! I was just thinking it was time to read some plays, a sonnet or two....and the book 1599 (? not sure of the title....came out in the past 2 years) about the most important year in Shakespeare's life....thanks for this, a way to prod me into reading him! I'll let you know my list when I have it ready....thanks! Susan

I backtracked a search from my blog to here, which is odd, as I can't find any reference to my blog here.

I'm the author of a new book, THE MASTER OF VERONA, which combines the characters from Shakespeare's Italian plays with the real people of Dante's Italy. I was wondering if it fell within your rules.

I'd love to chat some more - about where the book came from, the sequel, etc. But I don't want to take up space. Drop me a line if you're interested - greyhoundverona@aol.com.

Cheers, and have fun with the challenge!

Count me in. I've already got many more than 4 books, and this gives me the impetus to actually read them!

John Mutford said...

Count me in. Thanks for the sidebar.

Did anyone see the announcement that the BBC will be filming all of Shakespeare's plays (again)?

I'm undecided on what exactly I will read, but I think I'd like to read at least a couple of plays by him that I've not yet read. And then maybe 2 other books, not by him, but concerning him. Great challenge!
