Shakespeare in Love Extra Credit Shakespeare’s in LOVE!!!! Shakespeare so astutely noted at some point in his career, "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. 1 " After watching Shakespeare in Love , I recognized that the play masterfully juxtaposes prose and poetry. Shakespeare’s patron stormed into his quarters and demands a new play from his young playwrite. Young Will Shakespeare begins to speak to him in poetic verse about his inability to produce the work and the patron says to him, “Talk prose, where is my play!” He goes on to say we don’t have time for poetry when business is afoot and we must be serious and practical. Shakespeare continues the scene saying to his Doctor that he has lost his words, and he is melancholy because he cannot create his poetry that he values so dearly. It is like his “quill is broken.” Without poetry, the prose world is fruitless to him.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
