Richard Armour's Twisted Tales of Shakespeare
Born in San Pedro in 1906, Richard Armour attended Pomona College and then Harvard University. He studied with the eminent Shakespearean scholar George Lyman Kittredge, and obtained a Ph.D. in English philology. He eventually became Professor of English at Scripps College and the Claremont Graduate School in Claremont, CA.

Often confused with Ogden Nash, he wrote light, humorous verse, and also satirical books. The Twisted Tales From Shakespeare (1957) is a series of short pieces, filled with puns and plays on words, given in lecture style, providing a comic overview of some of the Bard's best-known plays. The evening will especially comfort those who have been forced to sit through dull classes in Shakespeare in high school or college.
