PBS Documentary "Last Will And Testament" More Convincing

By Win

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

The PBS documentary "Last Will and Testament" which promotes Edward Devere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, as the true author of the "Shakespeare" works is far more convincing. It seems to me there is very little reason to believe in the Shakespeare authorship and many reasons to believe that Devere was the true author.Win

this was a hit with my 4th grade class

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.

Great for middle school!

By Peg

Verified Reviewer

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

from Houston, TX

Verified Buyer

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!
