World Cinema Series ~ Celebrating Shakespeare

Here is a riddle from Shakespeare: “The more I give to thee, the more I have.” Who speaks these words and what do they mean? Shakespeare’s plays, more than any other author’s works in world literature, have been adapted on screen since the birth of cinema.


Shakespeare
David Turshyan, November 30, 2016

“All my best is dressing old words new,” writes William Shakespeare in one of his sonnets. Let’s consider an expression –  “to kiss away” – from the play Antony and Cleopatra –  “We have kissed away kingdoms and provinces.” (Act 3, scene 10).


David Turshyan, March 14, 2014

Daffodils,

That come before the swallow dares, and take

The winds of March with beauty...

O, these I lack,

To make you garlands of… my sweet friend.

 - Perdita, Winter’s Tale (IV, 4)
