Chances are good that youve used one of the following expressions in your everyday conversations: Eaten me out of house and home, Give the devil his due, Done to death, or The green-eyed monster. But did you know William Shakespeare authored each of these phrases, along with many other English phrases in common use? For the Love of Shakespeare celebrates these and other common sayings that appear in our daily conversations and correctly attributes them to their true author, William Shakespeare. K. B. Chandra Raj showcases these expressions, now over 400 years old, in their original plays and poems to explain how they have changed in meaning and context. In addition, Chandra Raj studies the influence of Shakespeares words and their remarkable staying power. His thoughtful commentary reveals how the originality and pure genius of Shakespeares works have led them not only to enter the public lexicon, but also to continue to be performed on screen and stage. Full of the beautiful language of Shakespeare, For the Love of Shakespeare celebrates the English playwrights incredible talent, and definitively shows how his works transcend time. Lovers of Shakespeare rejoice: Alls well that ends well!

When in love, our heart overflows. Whether love is requited or remains a hope and dream, love compels us to express ourselves. This original collection, culled from William Shakespeare's works, testifies to the essential link between love and language, between the experience of falling in love and the urge to express this unique feeling with our beloved and the world. Shakespeare's inventiveness and facility with words is such that even brief lines seem to contain whole galaxies of meaning. This allows us to read the brilliant passages gathered in this book without needing the whole context-the way we can marvel at a gem mined from a vast mountain without accounting for all that compressed it into a spark of beauty. Since their first publication more than four hundred years ago, Shakespeare's lines describe the pangs, pains, and pleasure of love like no other writer before or after him.

Having given the evidence for William Shakespeare's Catholicism in two previous books, literary biographer Joseph Pearce turns his attention in this work to the Bard's most famous play, Romeo and Juliet. "Star-crossed" Romeo and Juliet are Shakespeare'smost famous lovers and perhaps the most well-known lovers in literary history. Though the young pair has been held up as a romantic ideal, the play is a tragedy, ending in death. What then, asks Pearce, is Shakespeare saying about his protagonists? Are they the hapless victims of fate, or are they partly to blame for their deaths? Is their love the "real thing", or is it self-indulgent passion? And what about the adults in their lives? Did they give the young people the example and guidance that they needed? The Catholic understanding of sexual desire, and its need to be ruled by reason, is on display in Romeo and Juliet, argues Pearce. The play is not a paean to romance but a cautionary tale about the naivete and folly of youthful infatuation and the disastrous consequences of poor parenting. The well-known characters and their oft-quoted lines are rich in symbolic meaning that points us in the direction of the age-old wisdom of the Church. Although such a reading of Romeo and Juliet is countercultural in an age that glorifies the heedless and headless heart of young love, Pearce makes his case through a meticulous engagement with Shakespeare and his age and with the text of the play itself -- provided by publisher.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 3,0, http: //www.uni-jena.de/ (Anglistisch/Amerikanistisches Institut), course: Proseminar: Shakepearean plays and their literarary reception in the Restoration Period, language: English, abstract: John Dryden was one of the most famous writers of the 17th century and one of the most brilliant drama theorists. Therefore this paper wants to show the concepts of drama by John Dryden and Aristotle on the examples of Dryden's All for Love and Shakespeare's play Antony and Cleopatra as the adaptation original. The theory of the drama concept is based mainly on Aristotle, which is the fundament of all tragedy and comedy and especially for John Dryden's concept. Dryden used the theory of Aristotle very strictly and therefore shaped the tragedy writing of his time and after it will be the thesis of this paper. To prove this thesis the classical drama concept of Aristotle, which is the fundament of Shakespeare's and Dryden's theory, must be explained. Secondly Dryden's theory will be demonstrated as well as the concept of theatre in his time. Dryden lived in the Restoration era, so his thinking and his works are shaped by this time. Therefore Dryden's theory and concept of drama will be analyzed in its historical context. After this discussion there will be an analyses of Dryden's way to adapt Shakespeare and his purpose by writing All for Love, which is the mostly read adaptation of Shakespeare. There will be a discussion of the character conception, the language of Dryden and the Restoration period and the so called three unities based on Aristotle's theory. The story of this play will be explained and the characters within this story. There will also be an analyses of the very special and typical scene of All for Love when Cleopatra and Octavia, the two rivals, speak to each other, and of other scenes as well. Afterwards follows a discussion of the themes love and duty, which are very typi

First published in 1987. This study removes some of the critical puzzles that Shakespeare's comedies of love have posed in the past. The author shows that what distinguishes the comedies is not their similarity but their variety - the way in which each play is a new combination of essentially similar ingredients, so that, for example, the boy/girl changes in The Merchant of Venice are seen to have a quite different significance from those in As You Like It.

First published in 1961. This study analyses Shakespeare's treatment of the universal themes of Beauty, Love and Time. He compares Shakespeare with other great poets and sonnet writers - Pindar, Horace and Ovid, with Petrarch, Tasso and Ronsart, with Shakespeare's own English predecessors and contemporaries, notably Spenser, Daniel and Drayton and with John Donne. By discussing their resemblances and differences, a not altogether orthodox picture of Shakespeare's attitude to life is presented, which suggests that he was not as phlegmatic and equable a person as critics have often supposed.
