Shakespeare Re-Told is on tonight. I’m looking forward to it (Billie Piper is in it, for one thing) but a small part of my brain -the one that’s been doing English Literature for six or so years- is saying crossly, ‘But you *can’t* re-tell Shakespeare. Shakespeare’s language is too darn pretty-it just won’t sound right if they’ve changed everything. You’ll probably hate it!’
Anyone else watching it?
