Why read Shakespeare?

In his speech to college freshmen, Mack presents his opinion on the value of reading Shakespeare. Evaluate how successfully he appeals to his audience by writing and delivering a brief speech of your own.

  • Present an argument about whether Mack succeeds in achieving the ultimate purpose of persuading his audience to read Shakespeare.
  • Cite text evidence to discuss whether Mack’s style and tone appeal to you as a student and whether you find the comparisons he makes relevant.

This essay doesn’t have to be that good I mainly get Bs and Cs in this class but when you write this essay can you please make it sound like a B average student, my essays are typically 5 paragraphs long which usually takes up a page and and a half. If you can include the counterclaim in the last body paragraph that would be nice. Thank you very much 🙂
