Shakespeare Saved My Life - Laura Bates - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of Shakespeare Saved My Life:

Dr. Laura Bates teaches Shakespeare in the SHU.

My favorite Larry Newton quote from the book:

"When you look in the mirror and cringe as a result of how people think of you, it is ego."

Questions to ponder while reading Shakespeare Saved My Life:

Has the Bard ever spoken to you?

Should prisoners with life sentences be educated?

My thoughts about Shakespeare Saved My Life:

An insightful read into the power of Shakespeare.

I wish I could have read Larry Newton's book.

I am inspired to re-read the Shakespeare that I have *
(and finish reading his Collected Works)
