Speaking the Bright and Beautiful English of Shakespeare

BenSpeaker: Ben Crystal
Abstract:
The guardian of English poetry, the inventor of over 1,000 words still in use today, and one of the greatest players with our language, Shakespeare has given us a treasure trove of English to read – funny how so much of it doesn’t make sense until it’s spoken out-loud.
