Shakespeare celebrated by Yemeni Universities
The Yemen Observer reports on the National Seminar on Shakespeare, a colloquium at Sana'a University attended by professors and researchers from around the country.
Dr. Damonar Thakur, head of the University's English Department, said in a speech that students today can learn as much from Shakespeare's life as from his work. “Students of today should to take him as an example. He did not sit around dreaming but he put dreams into practice. Shakespeare went to seek work and became a set design assistant in a theater at the beginning of his literary life," because he could not afford to complete his education. Dr. Thakur encouraged students to perservere no matter what. "We should fight to make names for ourselves even through the most difficult of circumstances,”
