2 Childhood Born April 23 (we think), 1564 Stratford-upon-Avon, England Father was a local prominent merchant
3 Family Life Married Ann Hathaway 1582 (when he was 18, she was 26) Three children: Susanna born in 1583, twins Judith and Hamnet born 1585 Hamnet died at age 11; the girls never had any children
4 The Lost Years We have no records of his life during this time period It is speculated that he might have been a teacher, a butcher, or an actor to support his family. In 1592, he is in London, while Ann and the kids are still in Stratford-upon-Avon
5 1590 s Queen Elizabeth I ruled English explorers were crossing the ocean to the New World And travelers coming to England LOVED watching plays...
6 The Playwrights... Christopher Marlowe (more about him later) Thomas Kyd And William Shakespeare was the original New Kid on the Block
7 The Theatres... The Theatre, built in 1576 The Rose, built in 1587 (London s first Bankside theatre) The Swan, 1595 The Globe (Shakespeare helped construct in )
8 About the theatres Protestants condemned the plays Theatres were on the outskirts of London-- away from the authorities People who attended the theatres included: -merchants -lawyers -laborers -prostitutes -visitors from other countries -nobility & royalty
9 No lighting No scenery--just a curtain Could hold around 2,000 people
10 The most expensive seats were directly behind the stage, called the gallery. Though the people sitting there could only see the actors from behind, they themselves could be seen by everyone in the audience.
11 The theatres were closed during the plague.
14 Costumes... Richly decorated Didn t always match up to the time period of the play Looking good was more important than being realistic!
15 The Globe... Where did they get the wood? Can you guess which play was the first to be performed in The Globe?
17 Who were the Players? The Lord Admiral s Men The Lord Chamberlain s Men (Shakespeare founded; Richard Burbage was their leading actor) The Lord Chamberlain s Men performed mostly in The Theatre
18 Acting The actors were all men; young boys (age 12-14) played the female parts They were considered shareholders and owned stock or shares in the play texts, costumes, and props Their pay depended on admission sales Actors only had about 3 weeks to practice a new play In one week, the troupes may perform 6 different plays (as many as 4,000 lines!)
19 By 1597, Shakespeare... Had written the following plays: Romeo and Juliet Merchant of Venice A MidSummer Night s Dream
20 The Competition Christopher Marlowe ( ) He was the first great playwright, paving the way for Shakespeare. He wrote and acted for The Lord Admiral s Company--which was The Lord Chamberlain s Men s archrivals. He was possibly Shakespeare s biggest influence. Most Notable Works Include: Tamburlaine the Great (1587), Dr. Faustus (1588), The Jew of Malta (1589), Edward II (1592)
21 1603 Queen Elizabeth dies Shakespeare s troupe changes their name to The King s Men, becoming the first OFFICIAL theatre company of England s new king, James I
22 Shakespeare s Last Days Between , Shakespeare returns to Stratford to his wife and family. His will, which he revised a month before dying, left the bulk of his estate to his oldest daughter, and the bed to his wife. Dies April 23, 1616 at the age of 53
23 Shakespeare s Epitaph "Good Friends, for Jesus' sake forbear, To dig the bones enclosed here! Blest be the man that spares these stones, And curst be he that moves my bones."
24 Love of the Language In Shakespeare s time, everyone loved the English language. There were no grammar rules, punctuation keys, OR spelling! The language was evolving and everyday new words were being made up. Shakespeare s language reflects this freedom and experimentation.
25 Iambic Pentameter Is a sound pattern IAMB: one unaccented (or unstressed) syllable with one accented syllable It s like a heartbeat: ba-bum, ba-bum, ba-bum Five ba-bum s in a row make one line of iambic pentameter (10-syllable lines) Example: he WENT to TOWN today to BUY a CAR OR: In SOOTH / I KNOW / not WHY / I AM / so SAD
26 Why go to all the TROUBLE??? Using iambic pentameter kept things moving in the play (like a drum beat) It made the words & play more interesting It helped the actors remember their lines (like a song)
27 Where Did it Come From? The Greeks and Romans started combining drama & poetry. The English experimented with it, using verse and prose in their plays. In the 1590 s Blank Verse (poetry that doesn t rhyme) was the new Craze! The English Language is harder to rhyme than French or Italian, and English is more heavily accented.
28 When Shakespeare set his words to iambic pentameter it is compared to the birth of rock-n-roll: a mixing of old styles and new sounds.
29 What would you do if you just lost your only copy of the paper you wrote?
30 In Shakespeare s time, you only had one copy of a play, and after you wrote it for the acting company, you no longer owned it! Scripts were thrown out when they were no longer wanted or needed. NO copies of Shakespeare s plays in his own handwriting have survived. The only known evidence of anything in his handwriting is his signature (shown above) on the play Sir Thomas More that Shakespeare might have written.
31 Companies may perform plays for years before they became printed. Plays weren t thought of as works of literature. They were entertainment.
32 Quartos Small books of published plays were called quartos. The first published works of Shakespeare s vary considerably, making it probable that they were written from actors memories, or shorthand notes from a scribe working for a publisher, as opposed to Shakespeare himself. Scholars believe these are faulty versions, calling them bad quartos. Or as we say today, Pirated versions.
33 Plagiarism back then? Acting troupes didn t want other acting troupes stealing and performing their plays. It was common that people would go watch the play and write down the lines they remembered, then sell the quartos to other acting troupes. Many think that much of Shakespeare s own work was stolen from other playwrights. Remember, back then there were no copyright laws! It says, in short: because the author is dead, we are writing this for him...
34 The first full collection of Shakespeare s work was published in 1623, seven years after his death. It was called First Folio It contained 36 plays (compiled by John Heminge and Henry Condell--friends and fellow actors of Shakespeare s)
35 A Case of Bad Editing! First Folio, as well as many other works at that time, contained many errors, due to the fact sometimes the printers could not read the handwriting and had to memorize the lines as they set them on the press. The printers were the ones who decided how a line should be punctuated & spelled (not the writers)!
36 First Folio contained multiple errors--for example, there was no indication where Acts or Scenes began or ended. Today s Act and Scene divisions are based on shrewd guesses by generations of editors. There are many uncertainties, so even today s editions have variations in the text.
37 Why study Shakespeare? Chances are, you ve quoted Shakespeare without even knowing it! Have you ever said the following...
38 in a pickle It s Greek to me. Too much of a good thing.
39 as luck would have it good riddance dead as a door-nail foul play
40 a laughing stock an eyesore send me packing without rhyme or reason
41 Even today, Shakespeare lives on. We can relate to his tales of love, hatred, revenge, courage, trust and deception. So much of our world today has been influenced by Shakespeare.
42 All s Well That Ends Well T. Orman,
43 Teacher s Notes: Slide 15: They got the wood from the dismantled The Theatre. Because of a problem with the lease, they took it apart (plank by plank), stored it, then built The Globe using the same wood. First play performed in the new Globe was The Tragedy of Julius Caesar
