A Weak Biography
Still Learning | USA | 04/24/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I just purchased this DVD for use in my high school English classes, and I am quite disappointed to find that it contains very little biographical content about Shakespeare or discussion of his works. Instead, much of the half-hour program is devoted to Elizabethan architecture, London attractions of the time, and even clothing styles worn. This might be useful for someone interested solely in the historical context of Shakespeare's writing, but viewers will learn little about the playwright himself, or his world-changing plays."
