My Shakespeare Celebration

  • Martina van Heerden University of the Western Cape


William Shakespeare's contribution to the English language and literature remains invaluable. As an artist, he is simultaneously celebrated, revered and, in the case of first year students, feared for the ways in which he crafted plays and poems. His legacy is as far-reaching as his influence on the English language - from essentially providing the blueprint for all romantic comedy movies to allowing such wonderful modern creations as Shakespeare's Star Wars to exist (Artoo Detoo booping and beeping in iambic pentameter!).
