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.

Shakespeare and Daniel Radcliffe

Happy Birthday Daniel Radcliffe!

Wouldn’t he be great in some Shakespeare?

He is so talented and he has accomplished so much in his career, that it is surprising he has not done any yet.

Some time ago he said that he would like to play Puck in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and how he might eventually like to do other Shakespeare roles eventually, even though he considers the language intimidating:

I don’t think he has anything to be worried about. He is a very confident actor, and seems to enjoy challenging himself.

He does seem to enjoy working on stage, which is exciting. If he were to start doing Shakespeare on stage soon, I think he would not only enjoy the experience but he would return to Shakespeare on stage, hopefully on a very regular basis, for the rest of his career.

There are so many roles for him to do: Benedick, Iago, Edmund in Lear, Henry V, and so on.

As much as I would love to see him perform Shakespeare on stage, I would hope that he finds an opportunity to do some Shakespeare in film.

And he would be great in my Shakespeare Solved versions of the plays.

I could easily imagine him as one of Shakespeare's friends, and fellow actors.

It would be exciting to see him as an Elizabethan, performing with the other Lord Chamberlain's Men, later the King's Men. And, I'm sure he would enjoy performing a variety of roles spread across this whole series of Shakespeare Solved films.

But whereas Daniel may find the language of Shakespeare intimidating, it is actually quite easy to perform and understand when it is heard in the original context in which Shakespeare wrote such language.

What do you think?
