  1. Fromson takes the time to get inside the brain of Hamilton Meadows, a slightly troubled, PTSD stricken veteran, who has his heart set on recreating an authentic Shakespeare anthology with all lines spoken in original pronunciation or OP The only problem is, Meadows doesn t have any way to accomplish this monumental feat He has the vision and passion, but lacks real world experience, personal skills, financial support, and a real job More than that, Meadows lacks realism He lives in a romantic, f [...]


  2. A short and very interesting read about a gritty character and his pursuit of redemption Hamilton Meadows character offers a glimpse into a slice of the human condition that includes depravity, enthusiasm and redemption.


  3. I finished Finding Shakespeare on my flight yesterday Book is well swell.I thought Fromson invented this incredible character then I realized he s non fictional.


  4. This book was recommended by through a Facebook ad The book starts off interstingly, but then changes and gets dull and depressing The author writes well and with the same economy as Kurt Vonnegut, but he does not write nearly as well as Vonnegut to justify his moving the story around so much One of the problems with Kindle Singles is the complete lack of editing ie, objective authority , so the writers tend to ramble and no one tells then to make it better Well, Mr Fromson, make it better.


  5. Very well reported, but ultimately I didn t quite connect with Hamilton Meadows as much as other people seemed to Was hoping for much about Elizabeth English, OP, and Shakespeare in general, and less about one compelling oddball And frankly his production of Twelfth Night OP sounds like it was pretty terrible Too much detail about not enough story, but commendable craft on the author s part in capturing his main character.


  6. This is the story of someone whose life is always in the process of disintegrating has been for decades but who somehow keeps progressing through an incredible array of places and careers and breakdowns and adventures Mr Meadow s quest for Shakespeare s true English, and the weird club of people who are likewise obsessed with recreating that long dead accent, are just the latest parts of a long and bizarre story I ll let you find out the details for yourself, but suffice it to say he manages to [...]


  7. A truly well written longform nonfiction narrative that has something for everyone Whether you re interested in the history of Elizabethan english, the origins of Original Pronunciation OP , or just curious about what would drive an inexperienced Vietnam vet to put on one of the first OP Shakespeare plays in the United States, you ll find this piece fascinating The author has a way of pulling you into the piece and making you feel as if you were there for every shaky moment and potentially quest [...]


  8. I wouldn t assume that every piece of writing about the pronunciation of Shakespearean plays is very interesting, but this one I couldn t put down Fromson has found the most interesting possible subject in Hamilton Meadows Meadows walks the fine line between eccentric and mentally ill, and the author does an excellent job of highlighting the absurdity of his quest without mocking the life that led him to this point It s also fascinating and amusing to read of the interactions between such a sing [...]
