Who's afraid of William Shakespeare? Just about everyone. He wrote too much and what he did write is inaccessible and elitist. Right? Wrong. "Shakespeare on Toast" knocks the stuffing from the staid old myth of Shakespeare, revealing the man and his plays for what they really are: modern, thrilling and uplifting drama. Actor and author Ben Crystal brings the bright words and colourful characters of the world's greatest hack writer brilliantly to life, handing over the key to Shakespeare's plays, unlocking the so called difficult bits and, astonishingly, finding Shakespeare's own voice amid the poetry. Told in five fascinating Acts, "Shakespeare on Toast" sweeps the cobwebs from the Bard - from his language, his life, his time - revealing both the man and his work to be relevant, accessible and full of beans.… (mais)

A useful breezy breakdown of the way Shakespeare writes to try to make it less intimidating but too basic really beyond high school or the complete newcomer. Maybe I was expecting too much. ( )

Shakespeare, dont we all love him - though this was a bit much for me, more technical that I would want, so it's toast! ( )

After reading “The Shakespeare Wars” by Ron Rosenbaum (review here), I sunk into a lethargic stupor. What can I read that will topple Rosenbaum’s book? I’d “Shakespeare on Toast” on my TBR Pile for a while. It went there just when it came out, but I thought it’d be something of a pastiche on Shakespeare's works, and I was not in the mood for that. What finally made the decision for me was my subconscious. I wanted something that could be used as a counterpoint to the Rosenbaum’s book. At least that was what I thought, but the book is nothing of the sort. It’s instead a nice complement to the Rosenbaum’s book. It didn’t exactly rock my socks off, ie, it didn’t revolutionize the way I see Shakespeare, but it gave me a fresh, zingy insight into his work.


You can read the rest of this review on my blog. ( )

I really enjoyed this. It definitely lives up to the title and shows Shakespeare in context as something to be performed and watched rather than read in a classroom.

The language is laid bare and clearly explained in a way that I found easy to absorb. I particularly like the explanation of how Shakespeare used metre to give stage directions and show emotion. It probably helps that I've only recently finished an undergraduate creative writing course a few months ago. So now I get poetry in a way I didn't a year ago. That said this book explains it much better than my dry academic texts did, which is really the whole premise.

Ignore the academics, snobs and critics.
Instead listen to him, see him in person
before reading a single line of Shakespeare.

"Never, never, never, never, never." King Lear, Act 5, Scene 3, line 306

That quote is one of the most stunning lines in Shakespeare, and after reading this book you'll be able to give a number of very good reasons why this is true.
