I'm not going to say his stuff is crap, but I don't think I'm intellectual enough to enjoy his stuff quite yet. I can't understand the language and it doesn't interest me. I'm reading Macbeth right now and having a hard time understanding it.

I'll give it time, though.

I'm not into the Bard of Avon either. However, for a pound of KROC's flesh...  Big grin

Bet you he won't get it...unless maybe he does a 90 second search.  Big grin Big grin

Shakespeare is pretty good stuff, although it's very hard to read. I've read Romeo and Juliet, Othello (my favorite), Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing (very funny), and Midsummer Night's Dream.

I liked Romeo and Juliet, DESPISED Julius Caesar and thought Macbeth was written while he was on drugs or something. Ghosts, prophecies and witches mixed together into a weird story. At least there was lots of murder and betrayal.

To those who dislike it, why are you READING it? Shakespeare's plays were written to be seen, not read. You wouldn't read the script to a film and then pass judgement on it, would you? You'd watch the film. Go to the theatre and see it as it should be.

I lived in Ashland Oregon for two years. It's home to a Shakespeare festival. All I can say is BOOOORINGGG!!!! I enjoyed reading The Oddesy by Homer, Silas Marner by George Elliot, and I have even read half of Tale of Two Cities. I have read the play Enimy of the People by Ibsen and then saw the play. I must admit, the reading was better than the play.

I like Macbeth and Sonnet 18 best!  Smile

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
