This book cannot even justify the one star ating I ead as fast as I could like a personal mental exercise star ating I Horrible Words: A Guide to the Misuse of English read it as fast as I could a personal mental exercise wanted to test my irritation limits how much nonsence I could handle before I said ok that s enough I dont know how I managed to finish it but I did Now I want to forget everything about itConsider yourselves warnedAant of epic proportions is about to beginWhen I saw the title I thought Oh this is going to be great When I saw the imposing Ellen Terry front cover with the goddess of Theatre in Lady Macbeth s famous beetlewing dress I said come to me you beautiful book you I dived Grumpy Old Men: The Secret Diary right into Shakespeare s world trying to learn about the development of femaleoles over the course of his work Sadly what I found was a huge pile of problems and a stinking egoThe first blow came early when the writer eferred to The Taming of the Shrew In my opinion she has completely misunderstood the meaning of the ending I believe that Kate decides to the meaning of the ending I believe that Kate decides to in irony hidden in docile words in order to show to Petruchio that he will never win completely In my mind she wants him to understand that he can never be certain whether she is sincerely tamed or not And there lies the beauty of the play I think Shakespeare has concluded it in such a way so that the eaders can view it openly and interpret either way Many acclaimed critics have stated this as a possibility but Packer never states a doubt The expression in my opinion is totally absent She promotes her own prejudiced views as being canon in a pseudo Weekend Warrior: A Territorial Soldier's War in Iraq revolutionary highly pretentious mannerHer dogmatic tone bothered me deeply and made me doubtful as to what was coming nextAnd next she took the theme of male friendship which is so important to Shakespeare s plays a concept that the Bard borrowed from Ancient Greece and drew a comparison to the Paul Newman and Robert Redford films I meanSERIOUSLY Show someespectHer way to Drachenfels (The Vampire Genevieve refer to Henry II and Eleanor of Auitaine was to mention the actors who portrayed them in the film adaptation of The Lion in Winter the famous play by James Goldman As if there is no chance in the world that theeaders will Touched recognise these legendary historical figures who shaped a large part of the European History unless they have watched a film Wee talking about the parents of Richard the Lionheart call me an idealist but I d like to entertain myself by thinking that the Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption readers who are interested in essays about Shakespearean characters do know a thing or two about History History people not HollywoodThe writer is so opinionated in a negative way of course so boisterous that it becomes tedious irritating infuriating She seems to have convinced herself that she knows what went on in Shakespeare s mind as he was writing the plays She is so certain her view is correct because I haveead thousands of books on Shakespeare I have played in and directed all Shakespeare s plays I founded Shakespeare Company in Massachusetts There are so many I s and Me s that I had the feeling I was Hustling reading about her not about Shakespeare Well youe not Laurence Olivier you know Not even he had ever the nerve to claim that he was aware of Shakespeare s thought I mean who are you The Doctor Who of the Mind For instance she says she liked to think that Joan of Arc was the first woman he wrote about becauseno Sex Is Love: Rekindling Your Passion with a Hot Break reason Just like thatThis has been aant it has been a long Sunjata rant but I had the need to vent after witnessing Shakespeare being abused in the hands of the writer I waseady to toss it aside after 50 pages but I didn t I was hooked by her fascinatingly poor writing and lack of objectivity I considered it a hunt in order to spot the following outrageous claimsAnd I stayed up all night to finish it Well it was entertaining I can tell you that After all I managed to find the worst book about Shakespeare after 14 years of devouring everything that has to do with the Bard s life and work And I thought that Shakespeare In Love was an ugly poorly written not to mention acted since she adores Hollywood so much nightmareThis book deserves no stars it deserves minus stars actually If only I had a Wrestling the Dragon raven to cry Hold hold when I startedeading it As a Shakespeare teacher and a feminist I should love a book that wants to argue that Shakespeare was the first dramatist to develop fully Fancy Nancy rounded individual women characters and shows how that development happened As a lover of theater I should also love a book that draws on decades. From one of the country’s foremost experts on Shakespeare and theatre arts actor director and master teacher Tina Packer offers an exploration fierce funny fearless of the women of Shakespeare’s plays A profound and profoundly illuminating book that gives us the playwright’s changing understanding of the feminine andeveals some of his deepest insights Packer with expert grasp and perception constructs a Cancer Ward radically different understanding of power sexuality andedemption Beginning with the early comedies The Taming of the Shrew Two Gentlemen of Verona The Comedy of Errors Packer shows that Shakespeare wrote the women of these plays as shrews to be tamed or as sweet little things with no definable independent thought virgins on the pedestal The women of the histories the three parts of Henry VI; Richard III are Packer shows much interesting beginning with Joan of Arc possibly the first woman character Shakespeare ever created  In her opening scene she’s wonderfull. ,
Of experience as an actor and director of Shakespeare But I did Not Like This BookI like this bookI the style to be very off putting as an academic having someone say Shakespeare must have feltdone X Please Let It Stop: The true story of my abused childhood raises my hackles Packer doesn t know how Shakespeare felt about women no one does and she can t claim he did X or believed Y again we just don t know What sheeally means is My version of Shakespeare built out of my Doctor Who reading of the plays felt and did X and that s an entirely different thingShe also was much too attached to her vision of Shakespeare s increasing understanding of andespect for women to the point of having to produce some weird interpretations in ORDER TO CRUSH THE PLAYS THAT to crush the plays that t fit into her smooth arc This is most obvious when she simply A House in the Sky by Amanda Lindhout l Summary Study Guide rejects Two Noble Kinsmen because it is co authored with Fletcher and thus doesn t count But she s happy talk about Henry VIII which is also co authored with Fletcher so it seems obvious that hereal problem with Two Noble Kinsmen is that the female characters are flat and uninteresting She also makes some claims about The Tempest that I find simply دیوان رودکی ridiculous such as Prospero having an affair with Sycorax when it s entirely clear from 12 that she died before Prospero arrived on the island There are also places where she s simply wrong and I m actually surprised to find a director get basic facts about the text wrongSo all in all I found this book very unsatisfying and occasionally infuriating By finished I mean that I gave up about 102 pages in which I think is a fair amount of time to decide you don t like a book Iarely give up on books but this writing style was not for me There was a mix of scholarly ideas about the women of Shakespearean plays her history as an actordirector and complete conjecture The parts that were actual analysis of the plays was very interesting but then Packer would declare things she thought were true about Shakespeare and A Moral Basis for Liberty run with them as if it was actual fact The idea of a book about the women of Shakespeare s plays is fascinating she was not the author to write it This book is very strange until seeing othereviews I thought my conflicted feelings towards it were because the pattern that I The Secrets of Enduring Love: How to make relationships last read it in was alsoather strange I started it around the time of graduation and with all the hubbub surrounding all the parties thank you notes new job I Amexica: War Along the Borderline read this book in fits and starts I thought that because of this inconsistency I was missing something that I was unable to fully connect the text with my memory and thus some of her interpretations of history and the plays were sailing over my head But today Iealized no it s not my fault Women of Will is
Tina Packer S Baby It 
Packer s baby It solely about Tina Packer and Tina Packer s Revolutionary Afghanistan relationship with the theatre and with Shakespeare Those analyses and ideas may not line up with my own This is a book far too personal to be an expository end all be all interpretation of the feminine of Shakespeare s plays There is far too much of Tina Packer and her experiences wrapped up into this book to be objective Though the writing is engaging and sometimes charming overall this is not a very well written or well organized book I chalk this up to the initial construct Packer s idea is that Shakespeare wrote his plays in five acts in which a particular type of women emerges and that there are X amount of women who fit into this category To a certain extent I understood what she was doing but Shakespeare s work simply isn t that linear and so when hereferences crossover and the timeline doesn t seem to uite match up it lends a disorganized air to the book The book is also Stripped rather tangential and meandering She glides from topic to topic In the midst of discussing a play she drops everything to talk about the fall of the American Empire or her view of the transgenderights movement or her Stripped: A Life of Strip and Tease in Clubland relationship with Nigel Gore which to go on a bit of a tangent myself I hope Nigeleciprocates her intense feelings because like whoa The thing is I don t particularly care about any of those topics I see the A Strange and Mystifying Story, Vol. 1 relevancy but don t see how they are worth a paragraph in an already overlong chapter Another one of her writing uirks was the use of exclamation marks It was a pet peeve throughouteading this book But I had a bit of a The Cornershop Cookbook: Delicious Recipes from your local shop revelation yesterday that this was originally a performance piece If she is explaining things orally theseemarks do deserve exclamation but the dynamics and impac. Y alive a virgin true sent from heaven a country girl going to lead men bravely into battle the kind of girl Shakespeare could have known and loved in Stratford Her independent esolution collapses within a few scenes as Shakespeare himself suddenly turns against her and she yields to the common caricature of his culture and becomes Joan the Enemy the Warrior Woman the witch; a woman to be feared and destroyed   As Packer turns her attention to the extraordinary Juliet the author perceives a large shift Suddenly Shakespeare’s women have depth of character motivation understanding of life than eual to that of the men; once Juliet has led the way the plays are never the same again As Shakespeare ceases to write about women as predictable caricatures and starts writing them from the inside embodying their voices his women become as dimensional spirited spiritual active and sexual as any of his male characters Juliet is just as passionately in love as Romeo isking everyth. ,

Notes on a Nervous Planet Hot Dog Girl Stitches: A Memoir The Salt Path
Single White E-Mail really freaking weird She just feels that some lady that may or may not have been in the same vicinity of Shakespeare ever is the Dark Lady She just knows that Pericles is an example of Shakespeareeturning to an earlier style instead of being an early play Why Because they fit with her thesis She twists the evidence to support her preconceived conclusion This happens also in her exploration of some of the plays She twists the evidence to support her preconceived conclusion This happens also in her exploration of some of the plays assumptions about the characters are based solely on her own idea of what is true I never The Ten Commandments for Business Failure read Lear and Goneril selationship as incestuous or Othello and Iago s as being homoerotic to be fair I have The Complete Procopius Anthology (Texts From Ancient Rome Book 13) read interpretations of both before I don temember Caliban ever being Prospero s son or Antonio being bereft at Sebastian s choice to marry Olivia Packer takes these things as obvious foregone conclusions but I never felt entirely comfortable with any of those things being definitively decided especially on such sparse evidence It is academic narcissism evident also in what plays she selected skating over those that do not exactly fit her picture of the Shakespearean woman She talks about the plays SHE loves which included long stretches of in depth analysis about plays that are Making Terrorism History rarely performed or taught and conseuently plays I have never seen heard oread Conseuently there were lengthy parts of the book that I did not understand particularly if she did not explain the action in a concise way where I felt disconnected confused and left out of the fun However despite all these fatal flaws I Tombstone really liked this book There is no denying that Packer is a prolific Shakespearean and to hear her thoughts on some of my favorite plays Twelfth Night Macbeth Much Ado etc were invaluable As aeader I had to move beyond what I wanted which was an academic treatise on Shakespearean women and step instead into what Tina Packer was providing Her completely honest take on what William Shakespeare and women I m not sure if I Judicial Misconduct read a purely academic book on Shakespeare s women it would inspire such deep thought on my part Shakespeare IS meant to be performed and interpreted by actors and a theatrical audience IT was never intentioned for academia And this is an actor s book about an actor s world It is a uniuely intimate book one that allows theeader to step into the mind of a woman who has completely devoted herself to the art form and particularly to Shakespeare Maybe I m biased I live Captain Kate relatively close to ShakespeareCo and have seen many of Tina Packer s productions To go is a highlight of my summer I ve met Nigel Gore seen many of the actors that she mentions perform Some of those productions I love 2010 s Richard III for example others I detest like 2013 s Love s Labor s Lost Tina Packer s company is much like this book immensely valuable artful and skilled but at times too caught up in their own thoughts their own interpretations their cerebral world themselves to clearly communicate they mean So yeahalso this is my first book of SUMMMERRRR YAYAYAYAYAYAY Author Tina Packer is an astonishing woman She founded her own troupe Shakespeare Co and has produced many of Shakespeare s plays and acted in the starringoles including some male The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House roles such as Coriolanus In this book she says that Shakespeare s development can be traced through the development of his female characters He began with a conventional view of women who accede to the wishes of men but uickly moved to female characters who speak out and make their own decisions such as ueen Margaret and Elizabeth in Richard III Then he moved to Juliet who is portrayed just a deeply as Romeo And then to women s whose will to power is just as great and deadly as men s such as Lady Macbeth Interestingly she sees Lady Macbeth as focusing on power because she has just undergone the death of her child And finally the plays move to women who bring outeconciliation as in A Winter s Tale She sees Ariel in The Tempest as a female spirit Packer s feminist view of. Ing initiating marriage getting into bed fighting courageously when her parents threaten to disown her and just as brave in facing death when she discovers Romeo is dead And wondering if Shakespeare himself fell in love Packer considers with whom and what she may have been like the author observes that from Juliet on Shakespeare writes the women as if he were a woman giving them desires needs ambition insight Women of Will follows Shakespeare’s development as a human being from youth to enlightened maturity exploring the spiritual journey he undertook  Packer shows that Shakespeare’s imagination mirrored and evealed in his female characters develops and deepens until finally the women his creative knowledge and a sense of a larger spiritual good come together in the late plays making clear that when women and men are eual in status and sexual passion they can and do change the world Part master class part brilliant analysis Women of Will is all inspiring discovery. .
