I had Mother’s Day to talk about Moms and Father’s Day to talk about Dads. But what about the most contentious familial relation found in Shakespeare – Are there any good brothers out there? I’ve found five, and here they are! And, just because there’s such rich variety to choose from on the other side of things, look out for Monday’s episode, where I will be counting down Shakespeare’s top five WORST brothers. Lots of competition, see if you can guess who will be on there!
Follow me on Facebook, Tumblr, and on Twitter at @Cassius614 for more Shakespeare fun.
I half-seriously talk through the late plays: Cymbeline, The Winter’s Tale, The Tempest, Pericles, and Two Noble Kinsmen, and the themes that recur in them. What kind of world is Shakespeare going for here? This is a general overview, and more detail is forthcoming in later episodes.
