Poetry For The Brain? Shakespeare Please.

“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none”.

William Shakespeare

I’m happy when I find a reason to remember old quotes and even more happy when I discover reasons to study more literature and poetry.

Reading an article about a survey in University of Liverpool, I decided to add a new goal to my “2013 to do list”: to read more Shakespeare and other English classic poets and writers. According to this research, the complicated poetry and prose can activate important areas in both of the hemispheres of the human brain and act beneficially and therapeutically to the mind.

You can read some of Shakespeare’s plays on original text with a translation in modern English beside, here: nfs.sparknotes.com

Hugs & kisses
