ok..I just finished this huge english paper, and I was wondering which of my subjects is the most popular: Shakespeare's "Sonnet 18", Marlowe's "A Passionate Shepherd to his Love", or Marvell's "To His Coy Mistress". I wasn't really big on any of them...British lit isn't really my thing...

Never read that one...we're reading A Midsummer Night's Dream right now...rather funny in some places.

Is Sonnett 18 the one starting "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day..."? I like that one, it's great, so romantic.

I've read "Macbeth" and parts of "Hamlet" and I liked them.

I've also read "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead" by Tom Stoppard which is a "drama of the absurd". It's about the two minor characters of Hamlet and it's quite funny in a way (sometimes it doesn't seem to make sense at all).

From Chistopher Marlowe, I have read "Dr Faustus".

And from Shakespeare, I have read:

A Midsummer Nights Dream
Hamlet
Macbeth
and I'm currently reading Othello.
I have acted in King Lear, as Edmund the Bastard, so I know his part off by heart, as well as most of the book.

From me, Shakespeare just rules the way! I do not feel Marlowe develops his characters enough. He has his characters doing things, but does not go into why the character did it.

Shakespeare, on the other hand, goes into immense detail on why the character does something, and also goes into immense detail over the character.
For instance, in Othello, one really understands why Iago is so evil, and in King Lear, one understands why Lear goes mad or what the Bastard's intentions are in the play, and why he wants to be evil, simply because he is illegitimate, and is therefore jealous of everyone legitimate.
