John Marston and the WordWeb Project

Gastvortrag von Dr. Regula Hohl Trillini

Shakespeare and his fellow playwrights worked in a lively commercial scene that had many features in common with Hollywood. They collaborated and competed, had hits and flops, wrote spin-offs and sequels and exploited their own and each other's most popular one-liners. Instead of "Shaken, not stirred" or "May the force be with you", they circulated phrases like "Hamlet, Revenge" or "a sea of troubles". Regula Hohl's lecture introduces John Marston, a colleague of Shakespeare's who was especially interactive in this way, and a brandnew online database which offers thousands of examples of this kind of dramatic quotation.
