Scholastic Scope;1/24/2005, Vol. 53 Issue 11, p11
The article states that William Shakespeare invented all of them. If one had access to the purple love portion in this play, whom would you charm. Write a short comedy about what would result if, for instance, your best friend fell in love with the class hamster. The next time you're watching sitcoms on TV, notice if either of these Shakespearean plot devices are used. Keep a log by listing the name of the show and its date in one of the boxes below. And then thank Shakespeare for all the laughs.
