This week Booking Through Thursday poses the following questions:
Okay, show of hands … who has read Shakespeare OUTSIDE of school required reading? Do you watch the plays? How about movies? Do you love him? Think he’s overrated?
I haven’t read very much Shakespeare outside of what I read at school, although I do have the obligatory one volume Complete Works of Shakespeare on my bookshelf. I have never seen any of the plays live, although I would like to take the opportunity at some time. I have watched and enjoyed some of the movies and have a couple of them in my collection. I don’t think he is over-rated, but I can’t say that reading him is high up on my list of priorities right now, either. I have been enjoying the recent series of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars books, but that probably doesn’t really count 🙂
