Shakespeare cartoonified: Romeo and Juliet — Introduction

Cover

Following in the (long-past) wake of The Merchant of Venice cartoonified, I am very excited to present Romeo and Juliet in the same format. I hope to improve on the previous series: less disorganisation, more analysis and, in particular, deal with the issue of R&J as a Shakespearean comedy. (more…)


Books read in July

July

I should never ever say when I intend to publish my next post. Because every time I do something happens like magic to prevent me from doing that. When I say nothing everything is fine and I can post whenever I want. So, here are the books that I read in July, almost a week later than I said it would be. Nothing come up until I have finished typing this. (more…)


Shakespeare cartoonified – The Merchant of Venice: part 4

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.)
