Shakespeare in Limerick

  • Share on Tumblr

I owe a lot to Shakespeare – like everyone else – particularly my English teacher, Eoin O’Moore…

Without Shakespeare I’d never have met “Mr O’Moore” in a Jesuit school Crescent College Limerick, Ireland.

Without Shakespeare, my English teacher would have had to resort to all sort of lesser mortals – & god knows what I’d have turned out like…  certainly a very different sort of animal, man & human being.  The influence of Shakespeare on my formation was profound – but, perhaps most of all, Shakespeare proved to me that some people can be great teachers.

RIP William Shakespeare
RIP Eoin O’Moore – you both live on.  You are both with me ever step of the way.

In a series of blogposts, I plan to explore & share the consequences of my schooling.

    I hope there will be some comments – not about my reading of “O for a muse of fire” – but about English teachers and what role they played in your love of Shakespeare.

    Did you come to love Shakespeare because of your teacher or despite your schooling?
