Subject:     Children and Shakespeare


Richard Waugaman’s post of 22/12/12, in referring to a new book ‘Teaching Shakespeare to Children’ by playwright, Ken Ludwig, mentions instances where some young children can be fascinated by Shakespeare’s language without really understanding the words. The suggested reason being that it is the aesthetic quality which attracts their interest.  I remember that there was an extended discussion on this subject on this Conference many years ago.  I do not have a record of it, nor can I remember the date, but I am sure it would come to light if a search were made of the records.
