Muse of Fire

While I was researching Shakespeare for my previous post, I came across this trailer for a new documentary about Shakespeare called Muse of Fire. The title taken from the opening lines from the Chorus in Henry V (“O for a Muse of fire that would ascend / The brightest heaven of invention), it features several interviews with well-known and notable Shakespearean actors as it examines the enduring appeal of the playwright and his work.

It was recently broadcast by the BBC in the UK and was available on iPlayer. I haven’t seen it yet due to region restrictions, however I plan to as soon as it’s available this side of the pond.

    • Wow! I approved your comment and, for some reason, thought I’d already responded – it appears I have not! There was a tweet from them some weeks ago, looking for feedback on releasing it onto iTunes or Netflix.
