Is the study of Shakespeare still relevant today

Asked by: kathryn90
  • Bla bla bla

    The only reason it is relevant to learn is to show how much it must have sucked to try to read anything when Shakespeare was alive. It also stands to tell future play writers to never write anything similar to his plays because they will be boring and nobody will like them, especially high-school students who are forced to read them.

  • Why wouldn't it be?

    Shakespeare's work is indeed "old" compared to the work of today, however his works and studying his works are still very relevant in today's society. Many people to this day still look up to Shakespeare even though he died a few centuries ago. Many universities around the world still study Shakespeare's work, teaching it to this generation as our generation will pass their knowledge down to the next generation, and so on and so forth. So yes, of course, Shakespeare's works are still relevant. If I must say, they'll continue to be relevant for eternity.

  • Of course, it's history.

    Not to get off topic, but studying Shakespeare is as essential in literature as Bach is in musical literature (or atleast I believe). It is almost like a history lesson to study them; it helps give context on how later literature/music came to be and how they were influenced.

    There's also the benefit that most people cannot read and understand Shakespeare/Bach with ease. This helps strengthen the mind by having to decipher metaphors and implicit writing (as In Shakespeare's case) or different motifs and ideas (Bach).

  • Classic literature is timeless.

    Shakespeare is still relevant today. Studying Shakespeare's works in the classic language has actually been shown to be quite beneficial. A study was done that found that classic texts like Shakespeare's aid in self-reflection by stimulating the section of the brain that deals with autobiographical memory. In fact, it has been suggested that reading poetry may improve memory.

  • Love is relevant

    Even though Shakespeare lived from 1564-1616 and he wrote about love because love was in his time as well. We have love in our time. Even though the love also was forced between Demetrius loving Helena at the end of Midsummer Night’s Dream by a magical flower. Love is relevant

  • Perhaps, but in our quest to highlight one strand of classic literature we overlook all other great works and authors,

    I would prefer to see Edgar Allen Poe, or even Tolkin being analyzed and studied. Shakespeare's work has its place, but when we force students to endure three to four entire play units we're simply forcing repetition. To analyze we need an array of diversity in our book choice, and to improve our writing skill we need modern text alongside aged text.

  • Its irrelevant to learn

    Why should learn about something that's over 400 years old when we can learn more relevant thing today. We could be spending of time learn about new and up coming poets in our time not 400 YEARS AGO. Like seriously we don't need skakespeare anymore so lets just get over him.

  • No the language is different

    What's the point of reading it if you can't understand what it means. There are lots of good books why can't they study more modern one That students can understand. It's like getting students to read a Spanish book. I don't see how studying books is beneficial. Books/plays are meant to be enjoyed not studied.
