    Romeo and Juliet.

    So common but what can I say? I most enjoy love stories.

    Othello's Iago.

    Favorite character in all of literature.

    Still uncertain as to his motives -- a vast intellect is unencumbered by empathy/humility - essentially, the best parts about being human.

    Enviable, yet wretched mind.

    Shakespeare...

    EDIT: I am attempting to do work right now but will come back with reasonings behind why these plays are my favorite and why Shakespeare was a god amongst men.
    Richard III! Yeah! I also really like The Merchant of Venice, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, and Macbeth.

    But Romeo and Juliet is a play about ridiculous, stupid teenagers... not love.

    Yup, one might say there was romance there, but no love, just infatuation.

    Agreed, Iago's character is very crafty. Although there are some logical guesses for his motives, however circumstantial..

    lol, I'm so disdainful of Romeo & Juliet the characters that my kids TOTALLY GET that, too. I drop in little comments like, "So, here is Romeo, hopping the Capulet's wall to go and spy on this chick who he has now known for all of an hour and a half! And what will they talk about but MARRIAGE! Hope you guys are smarter than they are!"

    Macbeth popped my Shakespearean cherry, needless to say, I liked it very much.

    I took three Shakespeare classes in college and discovered that I was very good at interpreting Shakespeare. As a (secret) lover of gore I was delighted to encounter "A Spanish Tragedy."

    I liked "King Lear" best. Irrationality and family, an ever interesting topic.
    Favourite movie version is Kenneth Branagh's "Much Ado About Nothing".
