#12 – Elijah Chambless – Why You Must Read Shakespeare
Elijah Chambless is a student at LSU who has a great interest in the arts and film. We have had many conversations where we have enjoyed dissecting films and the ideas behind them.
This inevitably leads us to talk about the role of stories. Shakespeare was the best writer of all time when it came to fictional stories. He was a master of the craft. If you’ve never read Shakespeare or only enjoyed one of his works, we hope this discussion with encourage you to see in an age of mostly banal films, why Shakespeare is important for this art form today.
