Why Shakespeare? Ita€™s been 400 years since his death and yet we continue to find inspiration, revelation, solace, and entertainment in his poems and plays. In this original collection, Susannah Carson invites 38 actors, directors, scholars, and writers to share their own personal connections with Shakespeare and explore how he came to shape our world so completely. Along the way, we reminisce on a childhood spent constructing makeshift matchstick theatres with Isabel Allende, grapple with Coriolanus for a modern audience alongside Ralph Fiennes, hear from James Earl Jones on reclaiming Othello as a tragic hero, share in Julie Taymora€™s transformation of Prospero into Prospera, join Sir Ben Kingsley on his mission to keep Shakespearea€™s ideas alive for all generations through performance, and muse with Brian Cox on social conflict in Shakespearea€™s time and in ours. Together they offer fresh insight into Shakespearea€™s work as a living legacy to be read, seen, performed, adapted, revised, wrestled with, and loved.What is it like to be a part of a production that is both Othello itself and an Indian rewriting of Othello? ... The great James Earl Jones reflects on his past incarnations and conveys his current thoughts on how to reinvest Othello with the status of tragic hero. Othello ... In his essay, F. Murray Abraham reflects on the manner in which he was able to portray Shylock as the sympathetic cornerstone of the play.
