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.

Keira Knightley and Shakespeare


Congratulations Keira Knightley for her Oscar nomination!

I don’t usually write about nominations like this, but this is a special case.




I am so pleased that she was nominated. Her performance was so excellent in The Imitation Game. If you haven’t seen the movie, don’t miss it. It is the best film of the year.

But also, her work with Benedict Cumberbatch (nominated for Best Actor) was some of the greatest moments on screen in her career. The chemistry the two of them have together is unusually electric and exciting.

And while Benedict Cumberbatch is a great actor, and deserves acclaim and I do think he gave the best performance by a male actor all year, he could not have risen to that level without the superb assistance of Keira Knightley.

You might say that actors are only as good as the actors with them, and in this case, Keira and Benedict really pushed each other to perform at their very best.

Finally, it is exciting to see two such fine actors working together on screen. As you may have read here before here and here, I would love to see them together in this Shakespeare Solved series of films.




do hope that they don't wait too long to find projects to re-unite them in the future.

And as Keira has recently said, perhaps she should be the genius female next time!

Cheers,

David B. Schajer
