Comment: Is Shakespeare still relevant today? Arguments: In favor - the characters are relatable, works from long ago can still be relevant, and talking about the plays could make for an interesting conversation - Just because a piece of written material wasn't written from a twenty-first century perspective doesn't mean that it should be dismissed as irrelevant, unimportant, or non-relatable - we still experience the same things that they did 450 years ago, and still act in some of the same ways as well - it is interesting to see what life was like 450 years ago he has many genres, does not stick to a specific one -> appealing to everyone - various styles -> poems, dramas, plays - his works still apply to today's society - eternal: him for literature is like Bach for music - topics like love, treason, jealousy, racism can't be outdated Shakespeare has created words and phrases that we use on a daily basis -i.e. "vanish into thin air", "faint-hearted" and "what's done is done" - nothing at school is real life relevant, doesn't mean they are unnecessary - important historical figure, expand horizon - he is considered to be the greatest dramatist of all time - his style is very unique -> innovative but still traditional -Shakespeare is blueprint of eng. lit.
