What does Shakespeare say about love? In A Taste of Shakespeare: Love, a group of actors are working on a play about this very topic. As they probe the texts for proof, they find that the very same love complications dramatized by Shakespeare are happening in their own lives. In all Shakespeare's plays, love - in all its permutations - is a central theme. Romantic, parental, nudged along by fairies, mixed with jealousy, dangerous, tragic, noble and self-sacrificing. So no matter which play of Shakespeare's you are studying, A Taste of Shakespeare: Love will be helpful as it shows how to look deeply into a text to discover meaning.
