I've always respected Shakespeare but i have never been able to 'get into' or enjoy his work, a critic might also say that i just could not comprehend the intellectual subtlety of it all.
The critic would be correct.
After viewing this superb documentary i have garnered powerful insight into the man and his creative output.
The first thing i done after watching this, was to purchase and view Olivier's Hamlet which i thoroughly enjoyed, i then read the original which was utterly profound and i must stress that i did not experience this illumination when studying Shakespeare before i saw this documentary.
Many doors in my mind have now been opened.
I applaud Michael Wood and thank him completely, his is a priceless gift, that of knowledge.
