This week’s video Shakespeare news review includes silenced women, Game of Thrones, AI writing sonnets, and some cool reviews (all presented in “The Complete Works” t-shirt from the great Good Tickle Brain!). PLUS our usual recap of this week’s daily highlights in Shakespearean history.
As You Like It.
Four years ago, I was just returning from a three-year break from the Project. And the first play to get a discussion at that point was As You Like It.
