Welcome to Lovers of Shakespeare

To be or not to be, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to — 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

Leslee, you lust watch "Prospero's Books" a film by Peter Grenaway starring John Gielgud. It is an adaptation of The Tempest. It is stunning. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prospero%27s_Books

I haven't yet seen Much Ado about Nothing with Kenneth Branagh & Denzel Washington.

Anyone seen Shakespeare in Love? What did y'all think of it?

I think Midsummer is one of my faves!
I'm more for the tragedies, as well...
I think I will read The Merchant of Venice--thanx for the advice. Happy reading!

Hi Lovers! I am done with all my classes and am now going to read a little (maybe a lot) Shakespeare. I have the complete collected works, any suggestions for something different, as I have read the most popular ones (ie R&J, Macbeth...)????
