Re: Favorite Shakespeare play

I know it's not the "best" play, but I have a real fondness for the lyrical language in Richard II.

You haven't read all of the plays but claim to have cut out the "useless" ones? Tsk.

Re: Favorite Shakespeare play

R&J

Probably because I've taught it for 13 years and still haven't grown tired of it. Easily the most accessible of WS's plays.

Hamlet a close second.

Re: Favorite Shakespeare play

Yeah R&J is probably the most well known to those who dont even know Shakespeare as evidenced by this list.

Re: Favorite Shakespeare play

There are several others I might have chosen -- Henry V, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, or The Tempest -- but I went with Richard III.

"Was ever a woman in this humor woo'd?" Love it.

Re: Favorite Shakespeare play

My answer would have been one of the useless ones, yet you arbitrarily included The Winter's Tale. As Shakespeare himself would have said: "Dafuq?"
