Brain Game: As You Like It
I was recently discussing theÂ life of Shakespeare with my friend John, a college English instructor whoÂ recently organized a student trip to Stratford, Ontario, to see one of the Bard's plays. One of the topics we discussed was the idea that there might still be an undiscovered ShakespeareÂ text out there somewhere.Â Uncertain what theÂ title of such a work might be, IÂ decided to come up withÂ some anagrams of the titles of existing Shakespeare works in order to "invent" my own. Can you decipher these five into their original titles?
HENCEFORTH ACTIVE MEN
MERMAID'S HUMID GARMENTS
THE TWELVE-GNOME AFTERNOON
THOU BADMINTON GAUCHO
HERE are the answers.
FEATHERWEIGHT MONTHS > THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
HENCEFORTH ACTIVE MEN > THE MERCHANT OF VENICE
MERMAID'S HUMID GARMENTS > A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM
THE TWELVE-GNOME AFTERNOON > THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA
THOU BADMINTON GAUCHO > MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
