AbstractOne of the most difficult aspects of studying Elizabethan and Jacobean drama is the fact that students tend to study a script that was meant to be acted. The dialogue of a play is only part of the entire experience. The plays of Shakespeare, like any other, are meant to be seen and acted. Body language, lighting, tone, costuming and many other factors can set the mood of a scene or sway the entire play's meaning. This comic book is one way that the play All's Well that Ends Well by William Shakespeare can be more accessible to a modern audience The medium of comics, or graphic novels on a larger scale, can be used to help make these plays visually appealing to an audience. Like an acted performance, certain interactions among characters can help interpret moments in the play that dialogue alone cannot. This project works to show that comics can be a serious means of presenting Shakespeare, and drama in general, to modern audiences.
