I've been on a Shakespeare spree today.
Next year for lit we're studying Hamlet, so I tried to give myself a head start.
I don't really like it. They all die at the end, and then some random comes in and takes the throne. WTF?
The plays on the poll are the Shakespeare plays that I am familiar with.
In case you're interested in my opinions of the plays:
romeo and juliet: I don't like romeo, but I like the play. Who doesn't?
a midsummer night's dream: to be honest, it's the only Shakespeare comedy that I like. As the RSC famously put it, 'the tragedies are funnier than the comedies!'
macbeth: my favourite Shakespeare play.
hamlet: don't like it, don't get it.
the taming of the shrew: sexist...although I did like Ten Things I Hate About You :)
So there you are.
