YouTube Shakespeare

April 23, 2010

It is possible that it will not be long  before Shakespeare is normally seen first not in the theatre but on YouTube.

To celebrate the bard’s birthday, then, this page will begin to collect links to weird and wonderful Shakespeare-related video clips.

For many they will be a comic respite from more serious academic study, while they could also form the basis for an as yet unwritten thesis on Shakespeare on the tube. What can be said about the cultural capital of a moment, for example, when The Beatles perform Shakespeare which, years later, becomes replayble again and again around the world?
