Spotlight On ANONYMOUS: Shakespeare's Top 5 MomentsSpotlight On ANONYMOUS: Shakespeare's Top 5 Moments
by Pat Cerasaro - Oct 29, 2011

Today we continue our special series consisting of five entries total, each of which highlight a different facet of the rich and wonderful world of William Shakespeare and all with a particular emphasis on the controversial new feature film that explores the time, place, politics and goings-on of the Elizabethan era and focuses on the possibility that the true author of the esteemed plays we now know may very well have been someone else entirely - Edward de Vere - and how the question of the canon's true creation then comes into play - ANONYMOUS. "All the world's a stage," after all, so it should come as no surprise that acts of lust, bloodshed and betrayal would exist in the actual life - or even the supposed one - of the man who created the most bloody and thought-provoking tragedies in the history of literature - whoever he may have actually been. Perhaps some brief analysis of the finest leading players, most memorable lines and moments, as well as an exploration of other notable acts of grand betrayal in Shakespeare's plays will aid us on the journey to understanding the thesis of ANONYMOUS and bring us into a closer relationship with the individual who penned the greatest plays in the English language. Now that we have already analyzed the top ten male and female Shakespearean performers of the last few decades, as well as the most memorable lines, today we are going to take a look at some of the most famous scenes and noted moments from Shakespeare's plays - by both laymen and scholars - and some of the best audiovisual examples of these in their dramatic context - including clips from MACBETH, THE WINTER'S TALE, The Merchant of Venice, KING LEAR and more!
