"Shakespeare Summarized" kid tackles classics of world mythology & literature

Recommended Posts

So, my eldest, who had such fun making the funny and erudite "Shakespeare Summarized" videos in high school, is now in college, and while time is short, has still managed to tackle the Greek classics that she is studying. I am obviously biased, but I think they are fun and educational.

, is the longest, at 11 minutes, and is completely hand-drawn owing to there being no suitable available movie footage.


The "Shakespeare Summarized" series remains on Youtube to educate and amuse. Edited by Pingo

Congratulations, you made me nearly die of laughter.


Like literally, I'm in the hospital right now. Almost dead. Thanks a lot.


I will be sending my bill in the mail. Put $500 inside of an envelope and discreetly meet with a man name Pepe at your local Wal Mart dark alley. He will deliver the money to me in full.


I will be waiting. These hospital bills won't pay themselves.

Here is the link to the entire "Shakespeare Summarized" playlist:





(I'm about to go and watch the Patrick Stewart "Macbeth" one. Brrr!)



The Iliad is really good! The custom art is great. I hope your very talented daughter gives the Odyssey the same awesome treatment!

I saw a reference to "Troy Story 2", so here's hoping.

what happned is the kid's review of "the Tempest" is so epic it got shared, like a lot, because it was awesome. Not like The Scottish Play, which was like even more disturbing than the original, and somehow the commentary made it even more creepy

She's pretty awesome. She could market them as a video alternative to Sparknotes. In the current smart phone, tablet, e reader age we live in I'd bet they'd sell like crazy.

      Looks like the recorded classes from the RVE have started to be posted to Reaper Youtube channel for those who may have missed any of it. Looks like they are being posted alphabetically by title.
      So they don't get buried on the channel as more videos get posted to their channel over time, or for anyone who visits the forums, I'm starting an index here and will update as I see more videos posted.

      On this day in 1804, Meriwether Lewis, William Clark and the rest of their party headed up the Missouri River on a government-sponsored mission to explore the land that had been acquired in the Louisiana Purchase the year before and find a water route to the Pacific Ocean.
      And so began a multi-year adventure.

      I don’t have any links, and I am betting the observances are a bit subdued, but I do note that today is the 75th anniversary of V-E Day, the official end of World War Two in Europe.  Compared to that, getting through our current crisis seems possible...

      It’s been fifty years today.
      On Monday, May 4, 1970 at 12:24 PM Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on unarmed students, killing two protesters and two innocent bystanders and wounding nine.
      I put up a Twitter thread about it: https://mobile.twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1257343082611253250

      Well, I've gone and done it. I got a YouTube channel and have started making a series of videos on matters of paint and painting.
      Okay, I say "series of videos" all grandly, but at the moment it's one video and a planned syllabus. But I have more planned!
      This is pretty much my first video ever. I was helped a great deal by my family members who have more experience in this.
      The first video is a paint comparison, looking at one of the new Liquitex Acrylic Gouache paints (Quinacridone Magenta, PR122) and considering its suitability for miniatures painting.
