    Othello for me, nothing can beat that story for making me weep as if my own loved one had been killed.

I'm not really sure why since it's not good reading unless you are thinking about performing it.
    Even in play form (Which I have seen a few of), it doesn't stand out compared to other plays I've seen.

    What I love about Henry V is that Agincourt really happened, and really was as heroic as the play makes it out to be (albeit the dialog was most likely rather more earthy at the actual battle).

    Some historians relate that Henry's archers fought naked from the waist down. Once the archers had been positioned, they had to stay and fight regardless...a prospect made more challenging by the fact that they all had dysentery.

    None of them.

    I hate Shakespeare. I'm glad he's dead.

    For your sake I hope those plays you saw were high school or community theatre. If you don't like a Shakespeare play after seeing professional actors perform it, then all I can say is:

    I forgot about Coriolanus!

    I notice that the higher the body count the more I like the play. Maybe that explains why I kinda liked Shoot Em Up.
    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Default Favorite Shakespeare?

    I've only read 3 of his plays so far, and just finished Othello(I know I'm behind on the time since that was supposed to have been read in like high school), and never really appreciated his works until now. I think I just about love his plays now and am going to read more. Like the title says, what are some of your favorites and why?
