I’m sorry that I almost missed Cesario’s blog post entitled “Ten Unpopular Opinions : The Shakespeare Edition.” She posted it a few days ago and I am very behind. The list is funny — Titus Andronicus as a farce that should be played like a Monty Python skit? “Claudio and Hero — so doomed.” But it also shows a deep understanding of Shakespeare, making leaps that many people would not dare make because they’re simply not the common thinking (hence unpopular opinions, I suppose). “The Macbeths have the best marriage in all Shakespeare.” “Shylock is not the hero of Merchant of Venice.” “Lear’s Fool is a subject relative experienced only by Lear himself.” I mean, you can pick any of them and have discussion all night long. Great stuff.
