    i agree with the romeo and juliet hate. a couple meets, falls in love, gets married, fucks, one gets exiled and both eventually commit suicide for the other all in under a week. this is supposed to be the greatest love of all time and shakespeare's best work? please, that's insulting to all of us. if you want shakespeare, you can go read othello, hamlet and all his other stuff. romeo and juliet? victorian chickflick.

    Oh, come on now. Jim Jones? I know the critical tide has turned against him the last 30 years or so, but. . .

    well for one thing, it's hands down the most discussed. maybe not so amongst the shakespearean scolars, but amongst the general public? definitely.

    Ha - maybe I'll give him a reconsider.

    After all, he had an unconventional way of protecting airport security.

    Othello is much more flavorful.

    As is Twelfth Night and The Tempest.

    I don't think they think that. I think they think it's the best love story. Most people think his best work is one of Hamlet, "The Scottish Play" (superstition!), or King Lear. Unless you're T.S Eliot, and you think his best work is Coriolanus, for some reason.

    Heh. I'd recommend Bill Bryson's "Shakespeare" for a recently published short and sweet amusingly written biog. It points out in this that he wasn't a victorian, too.

    Oh, and I'd say his best work is MacBeth. Maybe because I liked Terry Pratchett's take on it with Wyrd Sisters?

    Allen Iverson is tough as nails and wants to win more than anyone. That's good enough for me.
