More children unaware of what they are saying when reciting Shakespeare. Here three-year-old Tatiana, aided by her two-year-old sibling, recites the ‘To be or not to be’ soliloquy by reading from a computer screen. While some of these ‘cute kid’ Shakespeare videos seem to highlight in some revealing way the disparity between the innocent voice and the words being uttered, here one just marvels at how much a young brain can take in. I mean, just pronouncing ‘contumely’ correctly is an astonishing achievement.
