Shakespeare cartoonified – The Merchant of Venice: Part 1
I know many people hate Shakespeare and that they have had bad experiences with it in school. But, you know, Shakespeare really isn’t all that bad. I’m very fond of Shakespearian plays myself, and as I have to write a paper on Shakespearian comedy at the moment, I thought I’d turn work into play and cartoonify The Merchant of Venice. (The cartoon isn’t part of the paper. That would have been a wonderful opportunity though! I’m studying the devices used in the play.)
So here is my retelling of Merchant. I hope you like it and that I can share my enjoyment of the comedy with you in this series of cartoons. (Also, I did not mean for Lorenzo to come out having Draco Malfoy hair. That kind of just happened.)
“Soon” means “probably two weeks”. I’d like to post another book review next week, as I haven’t done one in months. My only problem is I don’t know what book to review. Things that I have read recently include A Game of Thrones, American Gods and the entire The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-series. I’m fine with reviewing any of those, but they are all so popular and have been reviewed so many times, I’m not sure if people want another review. Unless you want my take on any/all of them? Let me know in the comments! You can check out the little floaty shelf in the sidebar to see other things I’ve read recently, if there is a review you’d like to request.
Now, it’s very late, I have class on Shakespeare’s Richard II tomorrow and I am also hungry for no reason. So that means I have to go now. Have a great rest-of-the-week!
