Shakespeare in a Year

To commemorate the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare in 1616 (and because I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a very long time), I’ve decided to dedicate 2016 to reading through the complete works of Shakespeare. My reading plan, which consists (for the most part) of a work a week, is here. We will, more or less, be moving in order through Shakespeare’s career from the comedies to the histories and tragedies. We will finish up with the poetic works. You will notice that there are only 50 weeks here. The additional time in the year (about a week and a half this year) I will leave open as time to complete any reading that I wasn’t able to finish earlier in the year or perhaps tack on some bonus material. Along with reading the play, I will also be watching at least a few of the most popular movie versions of each and reviewing them on my blog. Please join in any weeks that interest you!
