shakespeare - relevant?
most likely ever since i was at school when doubtless it was argued to me i've been on about the relevance of shakespeare to young people. sometimes i get it right and there's a spark, sometimes - not so much. one common theme from the nineties onwards (and included born and the like) was that had shakespeare been alive he would undoubtedly have been something to do with rapping. any discussion i might have had however is blown away by aka from the hip hop shakespeare company in this ted talk. it could be you're an educator, you may be just a parent who wants to share, whatever your background if you've got a feeling for the language of shakespeare this is essential viewing.
