Advice for Helena

Didn't want this to get buried.  In a very old post about memorizing Shakespeare, an Anonymous reader asks,


I don't imagine you would have any advice for someone playing Helena in All's Well That Ends Well, do you?


Anybody help her out?

one of our tricks was singing. i remember having to memorize things and if i made up a tune, i could memorize the words much easier.

think of all the songs you know allllllll the words to, that you can just recall at an instant because ... it is part of you.

small chunks at a time. very important. and then put them together as you need.

good luck!

The more time you spend speaking the text, studying it, writing it, or listening to it the better you'll remember it.
