Shakespeare's Insults for Teachers (Shakespeare's Insults) Reviews

    This book is an insult to your intelligence. It appears to collect the insults that Shakespeare wrote about teachers, but a moment’s reflection reveals that there are very few teachers and very little formal education in his works. There is a silly teacher in MWW, Some self-directed learning that never comes off in LLL, suspicion of teaching and education in 2HenryVI, what we today would call home schooling in Tem, and wooers pretending to be teachers in Shrew. Anything more is a quibble. Since Shakespeare does not really have enough teachers to fill a book like this, the authors fake it. They write off the point introductions to each section that describe educators, administrators, parents, and students inaccurately so the insults intended for non-teachers might seem to apply when ripped from their contexts. It is a sad exercise, and this is a sad little book. I could not exist except as a book to sell from a counter display as an impulse item. Two moments of scrutiny reveal it for the sham that it is.

    A pretty hilarious, quick, little coffee table book for teachers and students who are fans of Shakespeare.
