Shakespeare: There’s an app for that

Don’t miss this: Cambridge University Press is putting out two multimedia apps as part of an “Explore Shakespeare” series. Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth. App stands for “application” a word that only shows up once in the entire Shakespeare canon. I found it in “All’s Well” — the King of France says, “The rest have worn me out with several applications; nature and sickness, debate it at their leisure.”
