This is a slightly overrated Shakespeare play. It's title which is a play on slang for female genitalia also catches the fact that the play isn't really about anything. That's not necessarily a problem of course romantic comedies can all be about being light as a souffle, but this one is merely mi...

Entre todas las comedias románticas, Much Ado About Nothing queda como una de los clásicos del género, no por su innovación (sería imposible decir si Shakespeare inventó temas centrales de la obra, y por lo que conocemos de él, sería incorrecto) sino por ejecutar a la perfección los temas (y clichés...

Published 1989. NB: Read in tandem with the Branagh, Whedon and BBC’s versions. This review draws extensively from my reading of the three movies, as well as from my re-reading of the play. Let’s get this out of the way first. “Much Ado about Nothing” is one of my favourite Shakespeare’s plays...

Like Neil Gaiman, Shakespeare's drama is best seen and heard rather than read. There were a realm of dramatic wonders and non-verbal interpretations that didn't exist in the text form. Considering the last time I read anything by Shakespeare was high school, its been long overdue for me. Granted, I ...

Shakespeare, despite it's dated language, forgotten words, and belabored teaching in high school classrooms will seemingly never go out of fashion. I disagree whole-heartedly with Mr. Ramsy's assertion that "The very stone that one kicks with one's boot will outlast Shakespeare," in Virginia Woolf's...
