SHAKESPEARE’S SECRET COMPASS:
A FREE MASTERCLASS IN USING THE BARDPOWER IN 12TH NIGHT
If music be the food of love, play on.
JAN 6TH 6 PM – 8 PM GMT. ZOOM AND IN-PERSON
Writers: do you ever really want to undermine the tyranny of tradition but fear the blowback?
In 12th Night, Shakespeare shows us how he gets away with heresy, blasphemy and sacrilege right under the noses of Church and Crown.
If you ask the Shakespeare ‘experts’ what 12th Night has to do with the Epiphany, they’ll say, ‘Nothing. It’s just a bit of a Christmas romp. An excuse to dance and drink wassail.’
I’ll show you how, encrypted in symbols, wordplay, and biblical motifs, Shakespeare’s 12th Night takes you on a romp through the secret subtext of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation.
You’ll learn how the master not only tells of the Epiphany but also the forbidden secrets of the Creation, the fall of man, the birth of Christ, the Last Supper, the Blood seal of the New Testament, the crucifixion, resurrection, the ascension, and what we really do have cause to celebrate – that the Church dare not confess.
If you can use just one of these keys to the Bard’s power, you’ll banish writers block forever and write subtext that sizzles and sells like hot cakes and wassail.
