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.

Andrew Garfield and Shakespeare

Should Andrew Garfield do some Shakespeare?


From what I have seen, including his terrific performance as Spiderman (and I can't wait for the next one) he is a very impressive young actor, and I think he has a long and interesting career ahead of him. 

I watched The Social Network again. I don't care for the movie. Sorry. But Andrew's is the best performance in the film. Hands down.

I watched Never Let Me Go for the first time. I love all the actors, but I didn't care for the film. Sorry. Again, Andrew is just great in this.

Then I watched Red Riding. Really gripping. I was very impressed by Andrew's performance. There are some fantastic actors like David Morrissey, but Andrew's was the stand-out performance.

Those seem to be the only major roles he has had, unless I am missing something, and I am eager to see him try something like Shakespeare.

He has very good range as an actor, and he seems to have an adventurous spirit as far as his roles go, so it would be exciting to have him do some classics.

He played Romeo on stage in 2005, so it seems that he is not completely unfamiliar with the Bard.

I can easily see him as Hamlet, Richard II or III for that matter, and I think he would be great as the scheming Iago.

But I also think he could easily fit into the Elizabethan period.

I can easily imagine him as one of the Lord Chamberlain's Men, acting with Shakespeare on stage at the Theatre and later at the Globe. It would be exciting to see him with other great young actors performing Shakespeare's plays as they would have been seen for the very first time in history.

What do you think?
