The plays written by English poet, playwright, and actor William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) have the reputation of being among the greatest in the English language and in Western literature. Traditionally, the plays are divided into the genres of tragedy, history, and comedy; they have been translated into every major living language, in addition to being continually performed all around the world.

Challenge: You love the plays of Shakespeare and want to read them all! Here you can track your progress. Did you read it last year? Just copy the list into your comment and date when read! Hope you enjoy this ongoing challenge!

Serian (mamapata) | 14 comments I've been trying to see all of Shakespeare's plays for a few years now and I'm now stuck with Troillus and Cressida and Henry VI. But nobody does Henry VI because it's three plays! Grrrr! (If anyone knows of a production of either of these in the UK (or maybe Europe) please let me know! I will travel!)

I'm not sure I particularly want to read them all, but we'll see...

Pillsonista | 161 comments Oh, count me in...

My on-going Shakespeare Challenge: Jan. 1, 2018 - Dec. 31(?), 2018

I'm going to add a bit of a personal twist and attempt to read the Bard's works in chronological order (including the Sonnets and longer poems).

During the time period that Shakespeare wrote the four High Tragedies (Hamlet, Othello, King Lear, and Macbeth), he also wrote several of the so-call "problem plays", like Measure, and he would go on to write such masterpieces like Coriolanus and The Tempest, but he would never write an "out-and-out" comedy, such as Twelfth Night, ever again. I want to try to understand why that was, beyond what can simply be inferred or suspected by a cursory knowledge of the tragedies.

I'm going to attempt to read one play a week, but that is only tentative at best and I will list the completion dates as I go. And for the sake of coherence, I will read the plays of Henry VI in their intended order rather than chronologically.

So onto the list:

Henry VI, Part II (1590-91)
Henry VI, Part III (1590-91)
Henry VI, Part I (1591-92)
The Sonnets and A Lover's Complaint (1592)
Richard III (1592-93)
The Comedy of Errors (1592-93)
Venus and Adonis (1593)
Titus Andronicus (1593-94)
The Taming of the Shrew (1593-94)
The Rape of Lucrece (1594)
The Two Gentlemen of Verona (1594-95)
Love's Labour's Lost (1594-95)
Romeo and Juliet (1594-95)
Richard II (1595-96)
A Midsummer Night's Dream (1595-96)
King John (1596-97)
The Merchant of Venice (1596-97)
Henry IV, Part I (1597-98)
Henry IV, Part II (1597-98)
Much Ado About Nothing (1598-99)
Henry V (1598-99)
The Passionate Pilgrim (1599)
Julius Caesar (1599-1600)
As You Like It (1599-1600)
Twelfth Night (1599-1600)
Hamlet (1600-01)
The Merry Wives of Windsor (1600-01)
The Phoenix and Turtle (1601)
Troilus and Cressida (1601-02)
All's Well That Ends Well (1602-03)
Measure for Mearsure (1604-05)
Othello (1604-05)
King Lear (1605-06)
Macbeth (1605-06)
Antony and Cleopatra (1606-07)
Coriolanus (1607-08)
Timon of Athens (1607-08)
Pericles (1608-09)
Cymbeline (1609-10)
The Winter's Tale (1610-11)
The Tempest (1611-12)
Henry VIII (1612-13)
The Two Noble Kinsmen (1612-13)

Pillsonista, that is quite a challenge you have laid out for yourself!
Best wishes!


message 16: by Pillsonista (new)

Pillsonista | 161 comments Cheers, Lesle! I'm going to need them.

I don't necessarily expect that I will succeed, let alone succeed within the year. But there's no such thing as too much Shakespeare, so I'll just try to take it in easy stages.

That is a Challenge for one year for sure!

You can always change if need be to 'On-Going' as the title says! when life gets in the way! but let's hope for the best!

Happy Reading Pillsonista!

message 22: by Catherine (new)

Catherine Habbie Twice! That is really commendable RieRie.


message 23: by Inkspill (new)

Inkspill (runinkspill) this is a helpful incentive, I always wanted to read all these plays, 2 so far:

Much Ado - finished reading 13 April 2018
Midsummer Night's - finished reading 17 May 2018

so many does that leave? hmmmm, ouch!!!


message 24: by Rosemarie, Northern Roaming Scholar (new)

Rosemarie | 8295 comments Mod
Good beginning, Inkspell. I really enjoyed Twelfth Night, if you are looking for ideas. There are a lot of great works to choose from.


message 25: by Inkspill (new)

Inkspill (runinkspill) a good suggestion, for the next one I was thinking something with less comedy, like Hamlet / one of the Henries, but these look very long compared to Macbeth and Lear, and then return to something more light-hearted 🙂


message 26: by Rosemarie, Northern Roaming Scholar (new)

Rosemarie | 8295 comments Mod
Hamlet is worth the effort. I have never read any of the Henry's, but have read Richard III, which was excellent, and King John, which was disjointed and confusing. Another favourite is The Winter's Tale, which is technically a comedy but has a very serious side as well.


message 27: by Blueberry (new)

Blueberry (blueberry1) | 773 comments I just watched this on C-Span last week. It's a mock trial of whether Hamlet was insane or not when he killed Polonius. It was very humorous.
https://www.c-span.org/video/?441661-...

There are others as well: Macbeth, Twelth Night, Romeo and Juliet, and 1984.


message 28: by Inkspill (last edited Jun 09, 2018 02:51AM) (new)

Inkspill (runinkspill) Rosemarie, I really want to read Hamlet but it's long, mind you, not as long as all the Henries put together, so have opted for a less daunting one, Lear

thanks for link Blueberry, I haven't had a chance to look but sounds like they're trying to make Shakespeare less daunting 👍☺

update
finished King Lear on 31st May - realistically, with other books to read, it will be a couple of months before I read the next one. I might try and have a go at Hamlet


message 29: by Inkspill (new)

Inkspill (runinkspill) I think I've been taking too many vitamin Cs or is it Bs - I can nver remember.

I'm reading King Henry VIII, and without reading the notes I'm still able to follow it.

But this Oxford edition, packed with deatailed essay, notes and illustrations - bookish heaven!!! The kindle is a complete mess so I've borrowed a paperback copy and have to keep referring to it. Otherwise, brill!!!

Oh the Henrys, I'm working up to the 4th and all the rest.

RichII I know in passing and that BBC adaptation, I think starring Jeremy Irons ??? That was really good.

And RichIII, awww, now that's definitely worth a revisit :)

Jazzy Lemon (jazzylemon) Brush Up Your Shakespeare
by Cole Porter
from Kiss Me Kate

The girls today in society go for classical poetry
So to win their hearts one must quote with ease
Aeschylus and Euripides
One must know Homer, and believe me, oh
Sophocles, also Sappho-ho
Unless you know Shelley and Keats and Pope
Dainty Debbies will call you a dope
But the poet of them all
Who will start 'em simply ravin'
Is the poet people call
The Bard of Stratford-on-Avon!

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow
Just declaim a few lines from Othella
And they'll think you're a hell of a fella
If your blonde won't respond when you flatter 'er
Tell her what Tony told Cleopatterer
If she fights when her clothes you are mussing
What are clothes? Much ado about nussing
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kow-tow

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow
With the wife of the British ambassida
Try a crack out of "Troilus and Cressida"
If she says she won't buy it or like it
Make her tike it, what's more As You Like It
If she says your behaviour is heinous
Kick her right in the Coriolanus
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kow-tow

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow
If you can't be a ham and do Hamlet
They will not give a damn or a damlet
Just recite an occasional sonnet
And your lap'll have honey upon it
When your baby is pleading for pleasure
Let her sample you Measure for Measure
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kow-tow - Forsooth
And they'll all kow-tow
And they'll all kow-tow

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakespeare
And the women you will wow
Better mention "The Merchant of Venice"
When her sweet pound o' flesh you would menace
If her virtue, at first, she defends, well
Just remind her that "All's Well That Ends Well"
And if still she won't give you a bonus
You know what Venus did to Adonis
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll all kow-tow - Thinkist thou?
And they'll all kow-tow - Odds bodkins
And they'll all kow-tow

Brush up your Shakespeare
Start quoting him now
Brush up your Shakepeare
And the women you will wow
If your girl is a Washington Heights dream
Treat the kid to "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
If she then wants an all-by-herself night
Let her rest ev'ry 'leventh or "Twelfth Night"
If because of your heat she gets huffy
Simply play on and "Lay on, Macduffy!"
Brush up your Shakespeare
And they'll always kow-tow - Forsooth
And they'll always kow-tow - Thinkest thou?
And they'll always kow-tow - We trou'
And they'll always kow-tow
