No holds Bard — Jennifer Moody
Ms. Moody's article pays homage to the Bard as William Shakespeare is known. Check out the famous one-liners.
Most native speakers of English get some exposure to great poet and dramatist of Elizabethan England.
Besides the popular "Hamlet," "Macbeth," and "Othello," - some of his top tragedies - "Twelfth Night" has always fascinated.
Perhaps you'll agree.
The first line of the play is 'If music be the food of love, play on, play on!"
Also, another remarkable line is:
'Some are born great; some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.'
Using literature in English-language courses among advanced students is an excellent manner to teach culture and truly test reading comprehension. Incorporating writing and critical analysis guarantees a deeper understanding of the language.
