Why Do We Still Care About Shakespeare? | Ovations | UTSA's College of Liberal and Fine Arts Magazine By Cindy Tumiel Four hundred years have passed since William Shakespeare penned his last play. Yet his prose, plots and characters are as alive today as they were when the plays were originally staged during the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries. For two of UTSA’s eminent literary scholars, the bard of Avon’s enduring appeal is an enduring topic as well. The answer is simple for Craven, a professor emeritus at UTSA who taught his first Shakespeare course back in 1965. “He is the greatest dramatist, the greatest poet and the greatest prose writer in the history of the language,” said Craven, who teaches undergraduate courses in Shakespeare and has seen all of his plays performed at least once.

So my question is, what's wrong with the fact that Google is able to tell me everything I need to know? I am having trouble remembering what I did before search online. So what would have taken 5 minutes of searching, now takes seconds. So I ask whats wrong with Google (or any other search engine) telling me the answers I seek? The argument seems to be, in the classroom, that if a question is asked that Google can answer, then there is something wrong with the question.
