"The Official William Shakespeare Appreciation Post"
Mon Sep-26-05 06:17 PM by Frank Longo

  

          

As some of you know, I'm an English major. My specialty is studying the plays of William Shakespeare. As we've talked more about plays and movies based on plays recently, I thought it would be beneficial to make a post about Shakespeare. We can discuss which ones are good, which ones suck, which ones we just don't get, favorite characters, quotes, et cetera. Movies/performances you've seen are also fair game, not just the text.

Here's a list of the plays in the order that they were written.
