Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Shakespeare DVD 2PK:

While the show was produced for an adult audience, it set the stage nicely (no pun intended) for my Shakespeare class.

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Shakespeare DVD 2PK:

I use the first episode and a half of this DVD as an introduction to Shakespeare in my 8th Grade Language Arts class, then show the remainder throughout our Sonnet unit and "Romeo and Juliet." Gives a great background/ builds schema for students who know nothing about THE BARD. As interesting as it gets for Shakespearean documentaries!

Shoud be longer

By TomNichols

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Shakespeare DVD 2PK:

Great story, great history, but like any great work should have been longer.
Specifically I must have hoped for more discussion about Wood's feelings, play by play, as are discussed by Clare Asquith in her book Shadowplay.
I just hope he also did a book with FOOTNOTES, a responsiblity of any scholar! I can't as yet find it on PBS.
Still, wonderful and so well done!

Michael Wood does it again

By R J duffer

Comments about PBS Michael Wood: In Search of Shakespeare DVD 2PK:

Michael Wood has given us another view into the world of William Shakespeare using 16th and 17th century documents and government records to trace Shakespeare's life in Tudor London. Will's time growing up in Stratford on Avon his families history, his education and courtship of Anne Hathaway plus his time spent as a young man in London. Michael Wood is an excellent presenter. I have personally enjoyed Wood's previous series, "In the Footsteps of Alexander the Great", "Legacy" and others. Anyone that enjoys the plays are interested in the Tudor and early Stewart era of English Monarchy, the English language or English history should see this series.
