Not all of them, no, but a few. The plays are better to watch than read. I am a big fan of both the plays (especially Macbeth, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night) and the sonnets.
Of course! His work is magical :)
I have read nearly all of his plays and a lot of his sonnets. I find that reading the play and really studying it gives a depth of understanding to watching it that I wouldn't have otherwise. It brings me a lot of pleasure; I love the wordplay and the rhythms and the imagination and all the words and phrases he has contributed to our everyday conversation!
People who think Shakespeare is boring were just poorly taught at school. I feel very sorry for them as there is so much energy and life force in the plays, as well as a deep understanding of people and relationships.

I feel excited just thinking about it! I get a tingle down my spine....
I'm English.

So very much Yes!
I love the man.
Some I can also recite..
He sure changed the world in his own way.
We had to study these in school. So, so boring. I much prefer the movies.
I was tortured to read Julius Ceasar in school and that was it. I do like to watch the stage plays and movies though.

I studied 'Julius Caesar' for Grade X.
Loved it, easy play to understand, such great characters'.
Love seeing his plays on stage. Latest seen was 'Macbeth' a year ago. Excellent!
And before that, 'King Lear', by Bell Shakespeare Company. Wow!
Have got many on DVD!
Even though I had 'uninspiring' teachers' at School, my unbridled persoal enthusiasm won the day!

I HAD to read it in school many years ago.

I HATED it with a passion....

This has left me permanently scarred, so to speak as I would now not willingly read or go to a Shakespeare book or play -I find his writing incredibly boring and I do not like the style at all.

Perhaps if we had not been forced to do it at school, I might have felt different.

I still remember Richard II and I think we did that for the Leaving, as it was then called.

No, definitely NOT a fan of William Shakespeare.

Yes, many times!
Studied 'Julius Caesar' for Grade X, & 'Macbeth' for Grade XII. What juicy. gritty dramas' to get ones' literary juices flowing! Although I didn't find them difficult to study!

Huge fan! Have read several other plays, & enjoyed doing so!

at school years ago
