How's Your Shakespeare?

Recommended Posts

Here's the next part of the literature quiz:

 

BBC Shakespeare Quiz

 

You just knew the lowest score would be titled 'Bottom'!

 

I was relieved to get 10. I can happily screw up French, Geography, etc., but not Will! (Especially after having said on another thread that I would consider him as my Mastermind specialist subject!)

 

:)

 

Edit: Just went back to listen to the audioclips (fairly pointless since they only recite the words you've already been given - except for a tiny extra bit in one) and they have to be amongst the worst deliveries of Shakespeare I've ever heard!

7 also. Should have been better too - there were 2 I should have got right - I've studied almost all the lays they were referring to. It's amazing how the multiple choice can make you doubt yourself!

6 - Alas! With at least 4 lucky guesses. The only play I'm familiar with is Romeo and Juliet, having been dragged through it at school.

5.

 

Given that there were three or four multiple choice answers available for each question, I did exceptionally well as by the law of averages I should have got about three correct guesses from ten.

 

The only Shakespeare I have read was that which I was compelled to in English Lit lessons at school, so I was never going to do very well at this quiz.

8. Kicking myself for not getting the "Who's there?" question.

Don't suppose you mixed it up with the porter in Macbeth who declares, "Knock, knock" ?

:rolleyes:

No. I'll just say that the play it comes from is one I know better than any of his others.
