  • This is a really nice way of easing students gently into Shakespeare, thank you. As the holder of a Literature MA specialising in Marlowe (a contemporary of Shakespeare) I always enjoying bringing a little snippet of this into the classroom - this constitutes a great framework for laying a few foundations before engaging with some actual chunks of texts.
