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.

Seeing The World Differently -- Kumi Yamashita

Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita's shadow art is really spectacular. She definitely sees the world differently.

The reason I wanted to share her work here, on a blog about Shakespeare is because I see Shakespeare differently. I have a vision of Shakespeare that is unique, and her shadow art is a good metaphor for this.

I think most people are watching performances of the plays, and reading the plays, but they are only seeing the shadow on the wall. They are not looking at what created the shadow in the first place.

Too little attention is paid to Shakespeare the man, and to the period in which he lived. He did not write his plays in a vacuum. He was a man of his times, and he wrote plays to please, excite and entertain his audience.

My adaptations attempt to illustrate this -- Shakespeare as he lived and worked in the theatre.

I encourage you to explore her whole website, as there are several techniques and medium she is using.
