This was meant to be Tuesday's post, but I clicked the wrong thing. So it goes. A wonderfully imagined and beautifully written account of Shakespeare's family--his wife and three children, his parents, his in-laws.  O'Farrell's deft touch with research brings the past to vivid life and gives us an intriguing and powerful character in Agnes (aka Anne) Hathaway, Shakespeare's enigmatic wife, mother of the doomed Hamnet. Though I studied Shakespeare in college in multiple classe...

Should Universities De-Prioritize English Departments for Engineering?

Some American colleges and universities are cutting entire departments. But the Baffler magazine wonders if something else is going on: The ostensible reason provided for these cuts and terminations is "prioritization," a term used by university administrators to rank which programs deserve funding and attention. One such "prioritization" committee at St. Joseph's College in New York described it as a ranking of "centrality and essentiality," "demand and opportunity," and "productivity, revenue...

12 Shows Like Ted Lasso You'll Definitely Want To Watch

"Believe." That's the core tenet of "Ted Lasso," the instruction that informs both its titular character and the team who writes him into existence. If Ted Lasso believes, so too will his audience. Maybe they'll believe in themselves. Maybe they'll come to believe that football is life (and also death), or that deep grief can be lived with. Belief is what made "Ted Lasso" a word-of-mouth hit, and belief is, ironically, why the discourse turned against it -- because, if you haven't heard, despite...

Joel Coen is flying solo with "The Tragedy of Macbeth," a new take on the Shakespeare classic. While Joel Coen almost always works side-by-side with his brother Ethan, "The Tragedy of Macbeth" has him on his own — although that doesn't mean the Coen Brothers have had a falling out. "Ethan just didn't want to make movies anymore," said longtime Coen collaborator Carter Burwell. "Ethan seems very happy doing what he's doing, and I'm not sure what Joel will do after this.

How Data Scientists Pinpointed the Creepiest Word in Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'

Medium's technology blog OneZero provides a great example of the new field of "digital humanities": Actors and critics have long remarked that when you read Macbeth out loud, it feels like your voice and mouth and brain are doing something ever so slightly wrong. There's something subconsciously off about the sound of the play, and it spooks people. It's as if Shakespeare somehow wove a tiny bit of creepiness into every single line. The literary scholar George Walton Williams described the "con...

Course Hero acquires LitCharts, founded by the creators of Sparknotes

I’ll admit it: I was the student that tipped the teacher off that half of our English class, including me, was using Sparknotes to “read” Twelfth Night by Shakespeare, instead of actually reading the text itself. The site, which offered cliff notes and summary of books on a chapter by chapter basis, was the best way to review novels before a quiz — or, was the best last-minute savior if you procrastinated too much and never got around to opening the book in the first place.

As AI has grown from a menagerie of research projects to include a handful of titanic, industry-powering models like GPT-3, there is a need for the sector to evolve — or so thinks Dario Amodei, former VP of research at OpenAI, who struck out on his own to create a new company a few months ago.
