Delivering Insults With Class

Shakes_Insults.png

Did we mention February is big for Shakespeare in Ashland?

 

We could not resist an interview with the creator of the clever book Shakespeare Insult Generator.  Think of it as “Mad Libs” for insults, using lines and words from Shakespeare plays.  Oregon Shakespeare Festival veteran Barry Kraft is the author and gives advice on putting dullards and miscreants in their place with more than 150,000 handy mix-and-match insults in the bard’s own words. Take a listen or you'll be an “apish bald-pated abomination” and ill-equipped to hold your own in an Ashland literary smackdown.
