After life

Quote 6:; Shakespeare’s influence is evident in popular as well as high culture.fellow artists readily draw on him for paintings, operas and ballets.

Commentary : singer-songwriter Nick Lowe’s 1970s earworm, Cruel to be Kind, took its title from lines Hamlet addressed to his mother. “I must be cruel only to be kind,” the Prince of Denmark tells her in a wriggling kind of apology for killing a courtier and meddling in her new relationship. Hamlet also yielded the title of Agatha Christie’s theatrical smash, The Mousetrap, and Alfred Hitchcock’s evocative spy thriller, North by Northwest. And then there’s David Foster Wallace’s iconic novel, Infinite Jest, Ruth Rendell’s Put on by Cunning, Philip K. Dick’s Time Out of Joint and Jasper Fforde’s Something Rotten. That one play alone has inspired other writers in numerous genres, at far-flung ends of the literary spectrum.

Quote 7: "during his 52 years on earth, he enriched the English language in ways so profound. He enriched the English language in ways so profound it’s almost impossible to fully gauge his impact. Without him, our vocabulary would be just too different."

Commentary:He gave us uniquely vivid ways in which to express hope and despair, sorrow and rage, love and lust. Even if you’ve never read one of his sonnets or seen a play, you’re likely to have quoted him unwittingly. It’s almost impossible to avoid.

Quote 8;‘in a pickle’, waited ‘with bated breath’, or gone on ‘a wild goose chase’, you’ve been quoting from The Tempest, The Merchant of Venice and Romeo and Juliet respectively.

Commentary;These catchy titles barely gesture to Shakespeare's influence on the minutiae of our lives.Some phrases have become so well used that they’re now regarded as clichés.

Quote 9; "Othello (lust, jealousy, and betrayal), Macbeth (paranoid regicide), Romeo & Juliet (doomed love) and many of Shakespeare’s greatest plays were an instant hit''

Commentary;in flim, Hollywood scriptwriters quickly latched on to Shakespeare’s (often borrowed) plots and icons.

Quote 10;Shakespeare did not live to supervise the publication of his own work. The first edition of his collected plays, known as the First Folio, was published in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death. It included 36 plays (Pericles and The Two Noble Kinsmen were excluded) arranged in three categories: comedies, histories, and tragedies.

Even after his death the publishing history of Shakespeare’s plays has been a story of constant attempts by editors to correct errors and deficiencies in the quartos and folios. His plays wereso influential that there are now editors that have changed and translate shakespeares wrighting to make it more eligable.
