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 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!
