Shakespeare: Straight-up or dirty with a twist? Act IV’s lecture reading material loosely defines three types of “adapted” Shakespearean productions; the first stays true to Shakespeare’s language but makes changes to the script, the second stays pretty true to the plot but modernizes the language and often the setting (adaptations), and the third has some connection to Shakespeare and his plays but doesn’t try to tell any of his stories exactly (derivatives/offshoots). What is your general opinion of these adapted Shakespeare productions? Do you prefer your Shakespeare pure and without changes, or do you relish the spin-offs that mess with Shakespeare and create exciting new versions of familiar stories? Use a specific example of an adapted Shakespeare production to explain your preference. Your response should fully answer the discussion prompt in a full paragraph (minimum of 7-8 sentences, more is always encouraged!). Please take the time to look over any discussion posts submitted by your classmates as your reaction to their responses may add depth to your own response.
