Shakespeare Solved ®

Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

My First Post!

Welcome to Shakespeare Solved!

I have written three adaptations, of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Richard III and The Merchant of Venice, that are entirely unlike any previous versions you have ever known.

My solution is to present the plays as if they are being performed for the first time, by Shakespeare himself and his company of actors, in front of an Elizabethan London audience.

The key is to have the audience react to the plays as they are performed -- they laugh at what is funny, they cry at what is sad, and they heckle the actors whenever they feel like it -- to unlock the meaning of the plays. In this way, the audience watching the plays provides us, the modern audience, with a translation.

My adaptations are available on Amazon and Apple iBooks -- where you can Preview each book and purchase them:

1. Shakespeare's Premiere of Hamlet

2. Shakespeare's Premiere of Richard III

3. Shakespeare's Premiere of The Merchant of Venice

Each book includes an Introduction where I discuss the process by which I adapted the plays.



I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them!
