Well, this one is longer than the last one, but in fairness it's 2000% shorter than the actual movie. Continuing the trend, this video summarizes THE TRAGEDIE OF HAMLET PRINCE OF DENMARK, commonly known as Hamlet. Goodness, he really is a whiner, isn't he? And he's supposed to be the sympathetic character! Note: This is the second version of Hamlet Summarized, because I made the mistake of using a copyrighted song in the last one. Oops. UPDATE: Julius Caesar Summarized is up! Watch it at 🤍

Yeah, sorry. I don't like this play very much. I know it's a classic, I know it inspired countless other love stories... I... I can't help it. It's just too funny. I'm sorry if you actually thought this play was tragic, because I did not respect your opinion here at ALL.

EDIT: Have another! 🤍 AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE: 🤍 Sorry it's been a while. Summer vacation plays merry hell with both my work ethic and my voice. *discreetly hacks up a lung* King Lear! He's not a very good king, and he's not a very good father! Good thing that, by the end, he's neither of those things.
EDIT: Sorry, everybody, looks like UMG doesn't like me using their music. I had to remove the ending song, which dropped the audio quality a little in the final few seconds. For full effect, play Kiss With A Fist over the ending audio. I returned to my old style to do this one, in order to maintain stylistic continuity for the Shakespeare run of videos, so sorry if you were anticipating adorable chibi versions of Katharina and Petruchio - you'll have to make do with the boring, fleshy versions. On the plus side, this took me roughly two days, as opposed to the four-to-six-weeks the animated videos take, so at least it's faster! Next in the lineup is Paradise Lost, which WILL be chibi'd. I *really* don't like this play. REALLY really.

Visit us at 🤍 to read the full video transcript and our study guide for this classic play, which includes a full list of characters, themes, and much more. Hamlet is a tragedy written by Shakespeare at the turn of the 16th century. The play’s story, which can be traced back to a 12th-century Latin text, is about a Danish prince named Hamlet who seeks to avenge his father’s murder at the hands of his uncle, Claudius. The play is not only Shakespeare’s longest, but also one of his most iconic. At the start of the play, the king of Denmark has died, and his brother Claudius has assumed the throne and married his late brother’s wife, Queen Gertrude. Consumed with grief over his father’s sudden death, Prince Hamlet is appalled by his mother’s marriage to Claudius, whose character is, he believes, inferior to that of his deceased father. Little does Hamlet know, the ghost of his dead father appeared to his skeptical friend Horatio and two castle sentries the previous night. When Horatio tells Hamlet of this sighting, Hamlet decides to watch for the ghost himself that evening. Soon, the ghost appears. Addressing only Hamlet, the ghost says he’s come from purgatory to demand vengeance against his brother Claudius, who murdered him by pouring poison into his ear. Hamlet is shocked and vows to avenge his father’s murder by killing Claudius. Meanwhile, Claudius’ chief advisor Polonius is concerned about his daughter Ophelia, who loves Hamlet but is confused by his gloomy mood lately. At first, Polonius orders his daughter to stay away from Hamlet, but he later becomes convinced that Ophelia’s lack of affection is the reason for Hamlet’s melancholy. Polonius decides to observe the couple together in secret, hiding behind a tapestry with Claudius. But when Ophelia tries to flirt with Hamlet, his mind is on his father’s murder, and he rebukes her advances, proving Polonius wrong. Next, Claudius recruits Hamlet’s school friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, to discover the reason for Hamlet’s foul mood, but Hamlet quickly realizes that his friends are working against him as spies. Dodging his questions, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern tell Hamlet that they ran into a troupe of actors on their way to the castle and invited them along to perform for the court. Hamlet decides to have these actors perform a play based on the murder of his father, to see how Claudius reacts. If he seems rattled by the performance, it will prove his guilt. Meanwhile, Claudius learns that Fortinbras, the prince of enemy Norway, has expressed interest in waging war on Denmark, owing to the recent change in the country’s leadership. Claudius is reassured, however, when he learns that Norway’s king has forbade Fortinbras from invading Denmark, and that the Norwegian army intends to invade a small area in Poland instead. To do so, they need Claudius’ permission to march through Denmark, which he grants. That evening, Claudius indeed seems disturbed by the performance of Hamlet’s play, and even storms out, convincing Hamlet of his guilt. Hamlet decides to tell his mother, but on his way to her chamber, Hamlet overhears Claudius confessing his sins, including the murder, to God. Hamlet nearly kills Claudius, but stops short, realizing that if he killed his uncle while he was praying, Claudius would go straight to heaven. Hamlet goes to Gertrude’s chamber and tries to convince his mother of Claudius’ evil character. Meanwhile, Polonius is once again spying on their conversation from behind a curtain. At one point, Gertrude misinterprets Hamlet’s words, thinking he intends to kill her. She screams out for help, causing Polonius to scream as well. Assuming it is Claudius behind the curtain, Hamlet stabs at the fabric, killing Polonius. Following Polonius’ death, Hamlet’s friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern escort Hamlet on a diplomatic mission to England at the request of Claudius. However, Hamlet is unaware that Claudius gave them a letter for the English king, instructing him to have Hamlet killed upon his arrival. Soon, Hamlet discovers this letter in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern’s possession and secretly replaces it with one asking that his friends be killed instead of him. Meanwhile, Polonius’ son Laertes, upset over his father’s murder, confronts Claudius and threatens to seize the throne from him with the help of an angry mob. Claudius assures him that Hamlet is responsible, and together, they decide to arrange for a casual duel between Hamlet and Laertes, who is a skilled swordsman. Secretly, they plan to line Laertes’ sword with poison, ensuring that even a small wound will kill Hamlet. As an added precaution, Claudius will prepare a cup of poison to give to Hamlet during the fight. Returning home from his journey, Hamlet passes through a cemetery, encountering a gravedigger in the midst of preparing a new grave.

William Shakespeare's Othello explained with play and scene summaries in just a few minutes! Professor Bradley Greenburg of Northeastern Illinois University provides an in-depth analysis of the plot, themes, characters, symbols, and motifs in William Shakespeare's play Othello. Othello, written in 1603-4, centers on a mysterious conflict between the Moorish protagonist by the same name as the play and his malevolent ensign Iago. Othello of Venice, Italy is a passionate soldier and lover who woos the noble and good-hearted Desdemona. Sadly, Othello remains oblivious to the plots of mastermind Iago, who is puppeteering schemes involving all the plays other characters. "Honest Iago" manipulates his friends and confidants at every turn, staying one step ahead of them and turning them against one another. By the end of the play, Iago has trapped and killed almost all the characters in his web of lies. Did you know? The character Othello wasn't played by a black actor for more than two centuries after the play was written. And consider these common phrases first invented by Shakepeare in Othello: "forgone conclusion," "jealousy is the green-eyed monster," and "wear my heart upon my sleeve."

The Merchant of Venice, by Shakespeare, opens with Antonio, a Christian merchant, in a depressed state. His friends try to cheer him up, suggesting that perhaps he’s worried about his ships at sea. Then, Antonio’s dear friend Bassanio, an aristocrat who has lost all of his money, comes to ask Antonio for a monetary loan, so that he, Bassanio, can travel to Belmont to woo a wealthy heiress named Portia. Antonio and Bassanio clearly have a deep and loving friendship. While Antonio cannot give Bassanio the money directly, he offers to use his good credit to get a loan for his friend. Bassanio finds Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, and convinces him to give a loan of three thousand ducats. In a rather unusual twist, Shylock agrees not to charge the Christian men interest, but instead makes a strange proposal: If Antonio cannot pay back the money, Antonio will give Shylock a pound of his own flesh. Antonio accepts the terms of the contract, or “bond.” Meanwhile, in Belmont, Portia is melancholy. Her father, now dead, decreed that all of Portia’s suitors must partake in a test. The suitors are presented with three caskets: one of gold, one of silver, and one of lead. One contains a portrait of Portia within it; the suitor to choose this casket will have permission to marry her. First, the Prince of Morocco comes to woo Portia and picks the gold casket; inside he finds a skull, symbolizing the way gold hides corruption. The next suitor, the Prince of Aragon, selects the silver casket which bears an inscription stating that it will “give a man what he deserves.” Inside is a picture of an idiot. Back in Venice, Shylock’s daughter, Jessica has made a plan to run away with a Christian man, Lorenzo. They plan to escape one night when Shylock will be out. Shylock instructs Jessica to lock the house well as there will be masquers and music in the street that night. Once he leaves, Lorenzo arrives with two friends, standing below Jessica’s upstairs window. She appears dressed as a boy, tosses a chest of ducats down to them, and then runs away with them. When Shylock discovers that his daughter has run away with his ducats, his devastation overwhelms him. Meanwhile, there are rumors that many of Antonio's ships have sunk or been lost at sea. Shylock begins to revel in the idea that he will exact his pound of flesh from Antonio, in revenge for the many insults Antonio has dealt him throughout the years. Meanwhile, Bassanio has arrived in Belmont with his friend Graziano. Portia remembers Bassanio as the dashing soldier with whom she fell in love several years earlier. Bassanio selects the lead casket and finds Portia’s picture inside. After Portia gives him a ring to seal their engagement, Graziano informs them that he and Portia’s maid, Nerissa, wish to be married as well. Bassanio receives a letter from Antonio stating he cannot repay Shylock and must forfeit a pound of flesh. Portia tells Bassanio to take six thousand ducats—twice the original amount owed—and return to Venice where he can pay Shylock and cancel the contract. After Bassanio and Graziano have left, unbeknownst to them, Nerissa and Portia depart for Venice disguised as men. Jessica and Lorenzo will watch over Belmont while they are gone. Back in Venice, in a court of justice, the Duke pleads with Shylock to forgive the contract and let Antonio go free. Shylock refuses, even when Bassanio offers the higher payment. The court then waits for a doctor of the law to arrive. Nerissa enters the court and hands the Duke a letter stating a Doctor Bellario has sent an educated young doctor in his place. Portia enters disguised as the young Doctor “Balthasar.” Portia tries to persuade Shylock to spare Antonio’s life through an appeal to “mercy.” When Shylock won’t budge, Portia grants him his pound of flesh. Shylock holds a knife ready to cut into Antonio's breast. Suddenly Portia stops him. He may have his pound of flesh, she says, but not a single drop of blood, and the flesh must weigh exactly one pound—no more and no less, or Venice can confiscate his lands and goods. Shylock, clearly unable to comply, backs down, saying he will accept three times the original amount owed to him. But Portia refuses and presses on. In demanding Antonio’s flesh, Shylock was prepared to take his life. If any foreigner conspires against the life of a Venetian, half his wealth is to be given to the man against whom he conspired, half is taken by the state, and the Duke can have the conspirer put to death. At this point, the Duke pardons Shylock’s life and Antonio tells the court he will forgive the fine of half of Shylock's wealth provided Shylock converts to Christianity.
The Taming of the Shrew is one of Shakespeare’s best-known comedies. The play is meant as a light-hearted entertainment and, because it is a comedy, it ends happily with a marriage. It is an exploration of the battle of the sexes and takes a look at what men and women really want, as well as what each of them excels at doing. It may seem that such a story would have no relevance in today’s world, but some things change very little over the centuries and this story still provides a great deal to think about for men and women both. This play is believed to have been written in about 1591. With its comedic, slapstick style and simple plot, it quickly became very popular among audiences of the day. It’s important to understand where the title comes from. In England, the common shrew is a very small mammal resembling a mouse and is often found in fields and barns. But the shrew is a strange creature known for its vicious fighting temperament and its constant frantic motion as it searches for food. It will sleep only a couple of hours a day, if that, and only has a lifespan of one to two years. It will actually die from exhaustion if it goes without food for more than a few hours at a time. “Shrew” has long been an insulting term for an aggressive, bad-tempered woman, and Shakespeare’s audiences would have known right away exactly what he was talking about. The play itself opens with a framing device: that is, it’s a story-within-a-story. It seems that a group of noblemen, out hunting, are playing a trick on a drunken tinker. They tell him that he is really a nobleman and provide entertainment in the form of a play performed by a troupe of traveling performers. The play is called The Taming of the Shrew. In Padua, Italy, a well-to-do merchant named Baptista has two attractive daughters of marriageable age. The younger, Bianca, is gentle and sweet, but the older, Katherina, is so ferociously ill-tempered that no man will go near her – much less offer to marry her. Baptista finally states that Bianca may not marry until Katherina does. And that sends Bianca’s many suitors on a quest to find a man brave enough to marry her older sister. Before long, a man named Petruchio is found and introduced to Katherina. He actually admires her beauty and spirit and decides to accept the challenge of winning her over. He begins by agreeing with everything she says, no matter how outrageous it is. Strongly encouraged by her father and everyone else she knows, and perhaps seeing a chance to get out of her father’s house and have one of her own, Katherina agrees – however reluctantly – to marry Petruchio. After a wedding where he does almost everything he can to keep her waiting and to publicly humiliate her, the marriage is done and Petruchio leaves for home with his resistant bride. Some assume that Petruchio will literally beat his wife into submission and break her will that way. But Petruchio is not a violent man, and he has other methods in mind to bring Katherina around to his way of thinking. Describing this, his method he states: This is a way to kill a wife with kindness, And thus I'll curb her mad and headstrong humour. He that knows better how to tame a shrew, Now let him speak. 'Tis charity to show. Once they reach his home, Petruchio’s game is to pretend that nothing there is good enough for his bride so that she ends up with no comforts at all. Like the actual shrew, Katherina lives life at a relentless pace and never seems to rest. One thing Petruchio does is to deny her food, which echoes the fact that the real shrew has such a high rate of metabolism that it must eat every two to three hours or it will die. Whenever the servants bring Katherina something to eat, Petruchio insists it is not properly prepared and he throws it across the room. He also keeps her from sleeping. Shrews are very active and restless and sleep little, but like any animal, they must have at least some rest. Petruchio says that the beds and sheets and covers are not fit for Katherina and they, too, are all taken away and destroyed. This has the effect of leaving Katherina hungry and unable to sleep, and completely dependent upon her new husband for everything she needs. The one thing he does offer her is companionship, in the form of many sharp and witty exchanges. Katherina learns that Petruchio is the one man she’s ever met who is not frightened of her and she does come to respect him for that. In the famous final scene, Petruchio wins a bet that says his wife, Katherina, is the most agreeable among those gathered for a feast – even winning the bet over her own now-married sister, Bianca, who is not quite as sweet as she was now that she has the husband she wants. Summary too long...
As You Like It is one of William Shakespeare’s comedies and begins with two pairs of brothers. Each pair is from a different family and within each pair, brother feuds with brother. A brother from one pair has a daughter named Rosalind. She falls in love with Orlando, a brother from the other pair. The story uses some of Shakespeare’s favorite devices: family rivalry and characters in disguise, with plenty of romantic mix-ups and confusion. * As You Like It is thought to have been written in 1599 and was probably first performed in about 1603, though it did not appear in print until 1623. It is a comedy, which means there is humor throughout and the play will have some sort of happy ending. Shakespeare also wrote tragedies and histories, which have neither of those things. This play is a pastoral story. That means most of it takes place in the countryside among beautiful fields and forests as opposed to being set in a city, a castle, or a great house. The story opens in a small dukedom in France, where there is much strife between family members as well as in-fighting over who will rule the dukedom. The heroine, Rosalind, is the daughter of Duke Senior. Duke Senior was caught up in a family battle with his younger brother, Duke Frederick, and that fight only ended when Frederick deposed Senior, took his place as ruler of the dukedom, and exiled him. Duke Senior’s daughter, Rosalind, is allowed to remain at court because she is very close to her cousin Celia, the daughter of the now-ruling Duke Frederick. The hero, Orlando, is caught up in a family battle with his older brother, Oliver. Oliver wants Orlando gone and schemes to have him seriously injured, if not killed, in a wrestling match. Rosalind and Celia watch the wrestling contest and that is when Rosalind falls in love with the strong and handsome Orlando. Orlando manages to outwit his scheming brother and win the match. When Rosalind presents him with a chain as a symbol of his victory, he falls in love with her as well. Then Orlando learns that his brother Oliver tried to rig the wrestling match and is still a threat to him. Orlando has no choice but to flee the dukedom with a servant and hide in the Forest of Arden. At the same time, Duke Frederick decides he can no longer tolerate his brother’s daughter, Rosalind, and exiles her just as he exiled her father. But Celia will not let her beloved cousin go alone. The two young women decide to secretly leave together and hide where they will not be found. Escaping with them is the court fool, or jester, whose name is Touchstone. Rosalind is now disguised as a young man named Ganymede. Celia is now disguised as Ganymede’s sister, a shepherdess named Aliena. The two women and Touchstone make their way to the Forest of Arden. In the open fields within the forest they meet a shepherd named Silvius, who is suffering from unrequited love for the shepherdess Phoebe. Needing a place to live, Rosalind/Ganymede and Celia/Aliena are able to buy a simple cottage in the forest from a poor tenant named Corin. Elsewhere in the Forest of Arden, Orlando and his servant, Adam, find the exiled Duke Senior and his men. Orlando and Adam are welcomed as fellow exiles. Among Duke Senior’s men is Jaques, a sad and discontented figure who is pessimistic where most of the other characters are bright and hopeful. Thinking she is lost to him now that he is exiled, Orlando writes love poems to Rosalind and pins them to the trees. Then Ganymede finds the poems and soon finds Orlando. Ganymede offers to let Orlando woo him as if he were the real Rosalind – which Ganymede is, of course – so that Ganymede might teach Orlando how to get over his unrequited love for a woman he thinks he will never see again. This is where the romantic chaos begins. As with many of Shakespeare’s comedies, the humor comes from infatuated lovers falling for the wrong person – especially for someone in disguise. Silvius loves Phoebe, but she has fallen for Ganymede. Rosalind loves Orlando, who thinks she is Ganymede. Touchstone has fallen in love with a shepherdess, Audrey William, a shepherd, loves Audrey, but she leaves him for Touchstone. The confusion ends in an argument between Ganymede, Orlando, Silvius, and Phoebe. Ganymede ends the dispute by making Orlando swear to marry Rosalind when he finds her. Phoebe still wants to marry Ganymede, but agrees to settle for Silvius if she cannot have Ganymede. Back in the dukedom, Duke Frederick learns that the exiled Orlando and Rosalind – as well as Celia and Touchstone – all disappeared at the same time.

Visit us at 🤍 to read the full video transcript and our study guide for this classic play, which includes a full list of characters, themes, and much more. Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy written by William Shakespeare in 1598. Unlike the majority of Shakespeare’s plays, which are composed in blank verse, Much Ado About Nothing is written in prose. The play tells the story of Claudio and Hero, who marry despite attempts to sabotage their union, and of the unlikely romance between Benedick and Beatrice. Importantly, the “nothing” in the title was pronounced “noting” in Shakespeare’s time and refers to eavesdropping and gossip as much as it does a lack of substance. The play opens with Leonato, the governor of Messina, preparing to receive Don Pedro, a prince and military commander, after his army’s recent victory. A messenger confirms that two soldiers, Claudio and Benedick, are among the men arriving with Don Pedro. Leonato’s niece, Beatrice, mocks Benedick as a witless soldier, but Leonato surmises that the reason for her jabs is the “merry war” at play between her and Benedick. Soon, Don Pedro, Benedick, and Claudio arrive to greet Leonato, who invites them to stay in Messina for a month. During their meeting, Claudio notices—and quickly falls in love with—Leonato’s daughter, Hero. Later, Benedick privately ridicules Claudio for falling in love and insists that he will never be so foolish as to get married. But when Don Pedro learns of Claudio’s infatuation, he offers to woo Hero on Claudio’s behalf at the masked ball that evening. Claudio agrees to the plan. Little do they know, a manservant employed by Leonato’s brother, Antonio, has overheard part of their conversation and mistakenly informs Antonio that Don Pedro plans to woo Hero that night. Antonio conveys this to Leonato, who is thrilled by the match. Making matters worse, Don Pedro’s bastard brother, Don John, has also learned of the plan. He devises a ploy of his own, designed to convince Claudio, his enemy, that Don Pedro plans to woo Hero for himself. That night at the ball, Don John and his friend, Borachio, lie to Claudio that Don Pedro wants Hero for himself. At first, Claudio is furious and storms out. But when he returns, Don Pedro reveals that he has convinced Hero to marry Claudio, and that Leonato has agreed to the union. Meanwhile, Benedick and Beatrice share a dance, during which Beatrice irks Benedick by calling him a jester. Once again, Don Pedro hatches a plan to make the pair fall in love. Following the ball, Don John is furious that his plan to thwart Claudio has failed. But Borachio suggests another ploy: since he is close to Margaret, one of Hero’s servants, he could approach her in Hero’s chamber, tricking an observing Claudio into thinking that a man is there with Hero. Don John likes the idea, promising Borachio a thousand ducats if the plan succeeds. Meanwhile, while soliloquizing about the foolishness of love, Benedick spots Don Pedro, Leonato, and Claudio approaching and quickly hides. Aware that Benedick is listening, the trio stages a conversation about how Beatrice is madly in love with Benedick but would die before admitting it to him. Stunned, Benedick remarks to himself that he cannot allow his reputation to suffer by refusing her. He vows to love her back. Similarly, Hero and her other servant, Ursula, send Margaret to tell Beatrice that she heard the others whispering about her in the garden. Beatrice rushes to eavesdrop on the women, who are discussing Benedick’s love for her, again with the caveat that Benedick will never confess his love to Beatrice for fear that she will shame him. Privately, Beatrice worries her reputation will suffer if she refuses Benedick and vows to return his love. That night, a watchman overhears Borachio bragging to Conrad, Don John’s sidekick, about having tricked Claudio. The watchman arrests Borachio and Conrad, reporting them to his superior, Dogberry. But when Dogberry reports them to Leonato the following morning, Leonato insists that he does not have time to interrogate the men, as his daughter is set to marry Claudio that day. He orders Dogberry to handle the issue on his own. At the wedding, Friar Francis, the officiating clergyman, asks Claudio if he will take Hero as his bride. But Claudio refuses, alleging that he saw Hero with another man the previous night, an allegation that causes Hero to faint. When she awakens, Hero insists that she has no idea what Claudio is talking about, and Leonato swears revenge if he is lying. Convinced that Hero is telling the truth, Friar Francis advises Leonato to pretend that Hero has died in order to win sympathy and make Claudio feel guilty. As the wedding breaks up, Beatrice and Benedick remain in the church and confess their love for one another.

William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night explained in just a few minutes! Professor Regina Buccola of Roosevelt University explains the plot summary of William Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night. Download the free study guide and infographic for Twelfth Night here: 🤍 William Shakespeare’s comedy is all about mistaken identities and misplaced love. Viola, shipwrecked with her twin brother Sebastian, assumes that Sebastian is dead and attempts to find work in Illyria disguised as a boy. She falls for Orsino, duke of Illyria, though he is in love with Olivia. Meanwhile, Viola helps woo Olivia for Orsino, but Olivia falls for “Sebastian” instead. As this romantic entanglement develops, it emerges that Sebastian has survived and is in the city. Misunderstandings ensue as the result of Viola's disguise and her lookalike brother's return from the dead. Everyone ends up partnered off, but not before the bungling lovers' shenanigans reach a fever pitch. Considered the most famous playwright in history, William Shakespeare was at his best with this comedy. Twelfth Night was first performed in 1601 or 1602, possibly for Queen Elizabeth I. The play is replete with all of the elements beloved by Elizabethan theatre-goers: double-crossing, mistaken identities, cross-dressing, and romance intertwine on the last night of the Christmas celebrations, at which time pandemonium was celebrated. The comedy contains many of Shakespeare's favorite themes: a topsy-turvy world in which disguises and jests sometimes backfire; the folly of dwelling too long in grief; and the fine line between love and madness.
