Shakespeare Alive and Well

As a former English major and lifetime lover of good literature, it’s always exciting for me to see how the Web 2.0 world is pushing the bounds of how we think about the Classics.  Moving content online and beginning dynamic discussions breathes new life into old topics.  News on the Rialto, a blog created and updated by Shakespeare Magazine’s staff, is no exception.  From new movie and play productions to new discoveries about Shakespeare’s life, see how his life and work is still relevant, how cultures across the globe are retelling his stories, and how incredibly interesting a guy who lived almost 400 years ago can really be.
