morgan brady's insight:

(SOURCE ARTICLE): This source talks about how shakespeare combined puck with a character  known to the elizabethan people as Robin Good-fellow. So shakespeare used sources for characters and used other peopels ideas.

morgan brady's insight:

(IMAGE): This picture stuck out to me because Shakespeare has done so much for the english language. He has introduced almost 3,000 words to the English language. And is the 2 most quoted writer in the English language. so in my mind that makes him the "Superman of English".

I really like this image. I like the idea of incorporating the words he created with saying that he was the "Superman of English"
Brian Rose's comment, March 10, 2014 9:47 PM
I agree with what you are saying Jess. This image kind of makes Shakespeare look like a cultural superhero, and the font that the "S" on his shirt is written in is very clever and looks like it would be used as a normal Elizabethan font style.
Morgan Brien's comment, March 11, 2014 10:35 AM
I agree with both Jess and Brian. I think that Shakespere was almost the Elizabethian Era superhero of words. Like Brian said it's cool how the S is written in almost like a Shakesperan font. I reallly liked this picture of Shakespere.
