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.

Happy Birthday Kenneth Branagh



Happy Birthday Kenneth Branagh!



It’s been a busy year for him — he directed and starred in the newest Tom Clancy film, Shadow Recruit, he took his production of Macbeth to New York City, he filmed the new Cinderella movie (to be released in March) and he just began shooting the final episodes of the Wallender series.

There are precious few artists in this world with that kind of range.


Macbeth


Despite my disappointment with the production of Macbeth (my review here) I was very pleased that he has still continued to make Shakespeare a priority in his career — and I do hope that he continues to produce more Shakespeare projects, for film or stage.

I remember it was not that long ago he was talking about making a 3-D version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I think all of us would like to see that.




He also mentioned that he would like to remake Much Ado About Nothing and for his Benedick he spoke of Tom Hiddleston — whom he cast as Loki in the first Thor film, and with whom he starred in Wallender. It’s not fair to tease us like this, so I do hope that this film will made, and soon!

I hope you join me today in wishing Sir Kenneth a very happy birthday.

Cheers,
