Greetings Students! If you are having problems reading and understanding Shakespeare and want to become a more penetrating, sophisticated Critical Reader, please acquire copies of these two essential guides: HAMLET MADE SIMPLE by David P. Gontar, New English Review Press, 2013 ISBN: 978-0-9854394, and UNREADING SHAKESPEARE, by David P. Gontar, New English Review Press, ISBN: 978-0-9854394-9-1. Remember that tackling Shakespeare requires a bit of patience and a dictionary, but you can do it. When you are pursuing a certain play also try to see the film version at the same time, especially the BBC films of the plays from the 1980's. Ask your librarian to get these for you! Read with patience and don't give up. Make a special place in your heart for Shakespeare, like planting a seed of happiness. You'll see!
