James explains Shakespeare’s Cymbeline

James explains our stick figures representation of Shakepeare’s Cymbeline. We do this as we’re reading along to keep all the characters straight — who’s who and who belongs to whom and who wants to belong to whom. Over a period of three years we are reading from Tales from Shakepeare by Charles and Mary Lamb. We read this story in January and James made this recording at that time. I heard him watching this from his camera the other day and recognized it as a Shakespeare story. I asked him which one it was. James said, “It’s the one where the father doesn’t want his daughter to marry that guy.” Oh thanks, James. That really narrows it down. You might as well have said ‘it’s the one where the girl disguises herself as a boy.’
