Revising Shakespeare is a Cunt

 
Arguably, the greatest English language poet of all time, Shakespeare has been interpreted and reinterpreted thousands of times as different actors, producers and directors have all sought to put their stamp on his literary masterpieces.

Today there is a disturbing new trend that seeks to replace the genius of the Bard’s work with revisionist Wokeist dogma.

First up we have Macbeth starring Daniel Craig. Truth in advertising; I never liked Craig as 007. I’m glad his run is over. And I don’t care what he does post Bond. But I came across this load of manure and was shocked that even a talentless hack like Craig would involve himself in such revisionist, woke nonsense:

Did you all notice the lack of 11th century costumes? The modern clothing?

How about the fact that 2 of the Witches were Schvartzes and one was a man?

By the way, this wagon load of manure is from 2022 and still running.

Then of course there’s this bit of wokery; & Juliet

That’s right it’s…& Juliet

In this brilliant adaptation, it turns out that Romeo was a player! Quite the Player. Despite his dalliances with Juliet, he was hooking up with the entire assortment of alphabet soup characters.

After his death, Julie found out about his amorous adventures and rather than off herself, she embarked on a journey of self awareness, went to France and had all kinds of fun with her non-binary comrades.

The great Megyn Kelly and her excellent guest Adam Corolla:

Despite the plethora of cuntiness that this nomination invites the IsaC Faithful to comment on, the single most important aspect was brought up by Adam Corolla.

This is about grooming.

And as Megyn’s remarks show, parents must go above and beyond in order to keep their children from being co-opted by the horde of degenerates now operating openly under the guise of artsy-fartsy, woke orthodoxy in our society.

  1. ‘Is this a dagger I see before me?’

    ‘Forsooth, it is a black rubber dildo with ‘Vote Joe’ printed on the bollocks.’

  2. “Reimaging” Shakespoke has been bedevilling my professional doings all my very long life. Try to put on a “straight” performance and you quickly find no interest and no funding. A full cast play in period costume is very expensive to produce and invariably gets the cold shoulder from critics. Have done Othello a couple of times (once you have shelled out on expensive costume and sets you want to keep re-using them). For my money old Sir Larry got it right when he camped it up in full body makeup and matinee moustache in his 1960s production. Beautifully announciated as the bard should be, he later claimed that he got the poise and the walk from Sammy Davis Junior – a combination warranted to send our Woke World into a dizzy froth. Racial appropriation plus the WMN (Sammy was despised and pilloried as The White Man’s Ni**er). Olivier worked on the basis that Othello was a Moor (an exotic Muslim or Musselman gentleman) as described in the play but that is all long forgotten.
    Your Othello has become de rigueur West Indian for decades now played by a generally tall swartzer. Getting the fucker to understand the nuances of our blessed mother tongue is hard work innit. God how I hate fucking actors.

    • Othello? I’d have thought that’s one of the cheapest to produce.

      Tin of Kiwi parade gloss polish and a packet of Brillo pads and you’re ready to open the doors.

    • Saw Tim McInnerny, he of Blackadder fame, do Hamlet at the National circa 1985. Sterling stuff and very moving. All ruffs, cod pieces and the real words. If I remember correctly, there seemed to be a lot of pitch dark behind the actors, so the audience just focussed on the actors.

      Well that was a long time ago!

  3. Off topic

    Our delightful PM Greasy Suntan is on GB news shortly to answer questions from a audience in a live interview.

    Sure he’ll win hearts and minds and see a second term in office.👎

  5. If anybody is suffering with the DTs and don’t know the difference between an ass and an arsehole, I’m willing to pay their hospital bills.

  6. People have been taking liberties with the Bard’s work for yonks, esp. with regard to film adaptations.

    One of my favourites is the 30s Hollywood version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, which, I believe, only used about 45% of the original text, swapped around the running order of scenes, and changed dialogue from one character to another. The biggest laugh came in the casting of the principals; Romeo was 16 and Juliet 13, but they were played by the ludicrously mature pairing of Leslie Howard and Norma Shearer, respectively 43 and 34 when filming began.

    Another of my favourite takes from Hollywood was the 1929 filming of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, which legend has it was credited to ‘William Shakespeare, with additional dialogue by Sam Taylor’. You’ve no idea how much I want this to be true.

  7. Even John Wayne liked Shakespeare.

    The Quiet man is basically the taming of the shrew set in Ireland.

    Would the Duke like sooties in the bards plays?

    The hell he would.
