This book tells the story of the Royal Shakespeare Company's acclaimed and influential project to transform the teaching of Shakespeare in schools. It examines their approaches to making his plays more accessible, enjoyable and relevant to young people, describing the innovative classroom practices that the Company has pioneered and locating these within a clearly articulated theory of learning. It also provides evidence of their impact on children and young people's experience of Shakespeare, drawing upon original research as well as research commissioned by the RSC itself. Authoritative but highly readable, the book is relevant to anyone with an interest in the teaching of Shakespeare, and in how a major cultural organisation can have a real impact on the education of young people from a wide range of social backgrounds. It benefits from interviews with key policy makers and practitioners from within the RSC, including their legendary voice coach, Cicely Berry, and with internationally renowned figures such as the writer and academic, Jonathan Bate; the previous artistic director of the RSC, Michael Boyd; and the celebrated playwright, Tim Crouch.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: keine, University of Leipzig, course: Shakespeare Goes Hollywood, language: English, abstract: William Shakespeare surely is one of the most important English authors - although he lived 500 years ago, his works are still read and discussed. Since 1897, well over 200 films and countless television programmes adapted from Shakespeare's plays were produced . Especially his comedies enjoy great popularity. Because this paper will deal with one of Shakespeare's comedies, it is necessary to clarify the term "comedy." In Shakespeare's century, a comedy was everything that was not a tragedy or a historical play - so the term was as neutral as our German 'Schauspiel' is. The intended effect of a comedy was to "frame your mind to mirth and merriment, which bars a thousand harms and lengthens life," so to evoke laughter and entertainment with a therapeutic intention. In addition to that, comedies had a didactic function: they should show general mistakes like thoughtlessness, quarrelsomeness and meanness in the form of exaggeration. The main theme of the Shakespearean comedy is love. This paper will deal with "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (written in 1595 or 1596) with a special attention to the play's couples. Their state of relationship and the language the lovers use will be in the foreground. Does it differ from normal language use? If so, do the couples all speak in the same way? Does the language differ from couple to couple, in dependency of their quality of relationship? Firstly, it will be explained how the Elizabethan concept of love works. Secondly, it is demonstrated how a crush is revealed in terms of language and how a lover's language develops in Shakespeare's play. To conclude, the film version of Michael Hoffmann from 1999 will be looked at with special regards to a comparison of play and film.
