Ok, I know for sure this thread was probably already started but then died but with a great playwriter like him it needs to be relived.
We just finished Rome and Juliet in school, and even though I already read it I totally got reaspired to talk about his work again.
What's your guys favorite one that he did?

I adore Shakespeare! I've taken three college-level classes on The Bard already, and I still can't get enough. As of right now, my favorite play is "Hamlet." Cliche, yes, but for a good reason. (It's great!)

Years ago, my husband and I got all of Shakespeare's plays, except Pericles and one other that I can't recall, really cheap and I read them all.  They are quite good.  I love The Winter's Tale.  When we lived in California, we used to go to an outdoor theater for 4 Shakespeare plays a year, but we haven't seen any since we moved to MN.

I <3 Shakespeare too.

I love 'Midsummer Nights dream'. It's just so sweet and so cute.

I have a grudge agasint 'Macbeth' though. It's an amazing story and a brilliant play. But my school didn't put me in the school' version of it. Pah

I don't mind Shakespeare, but I'm not a huge fanatic or anything.

I've read Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and Twelfth Night for school.  In the 10th grade, for our Drama production, we did The Comedy Of Errors.  Hmm, I've also watched the movie versions for Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo & Juliet (the old version and the Leo DiCaprio modern-day version) and MacBeth.  Anything else...  I don't remember.

Oh yeah, and we watched a modern-day version of Romeo And Juliet on the roof of a building downtown in the summer for a school fieldtrip, in the 10th grade.  I don't remember much of it except that we had to move our lawn-chairs to different parts of the roof for different scenes, and that I got sunburnt.

I think my favorite was Twelfth Night.

I like Shakespeare. I should read more of him.

I've read 'Taming of the Shrew', 'Romeo and Juliet', and 'Hamlet', along with some of his sonnets. I think Romeo and Juliet may have been my favorite; I can still remember a lot of the lines, and it's been quite a few years.

I've seen movie versions of Romeo and Juliet (2 versions), Hamlet (3 different versions), and Much Ado About Nothing, which I really liked.

And I've seen 'A Midsummernight's Dream' performed on stage, and really really liked that one.

So I don't know what my favorite is, really. But I do like Shakespeare.

*gets out fan signs* *waves* Go, Shakespeare, go Shakespeare...! *lool* Sorry, got carried away a bit. Nah, honestly, I just LOVE Shakespeare! (Good ol' Billy.  ) So far I've only read "Romeo & Juliet", "Hamlet", "As you Like it" "Macbeth", "Othello" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and I just started reading some of his Sonnets. So far my faves are Hamlet and Romeo & Juliet... I don't know why, but I guess that's because I went to see Hamlet shortly after I had read it so it made a huge impression on me. And Romeo & Juliet, in a way, is this immensely romantic love-story...
For some reason everyone I know thinks I'm *completely* mad 'cause I like him but I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who does!

Next tri-mester at our school we're going to read 'A Midsummers Night Dream.'
It is so cool because everyone gets to pick a part and we read it like that.

Oh, I simply adore Shakespeare! I own his complete works, and I also have a copy of Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story in a single book. Shakespeare is a very talented author, and I tend to get upset when people say he "stole" his works off other authors of the time since there were no copyright laws.
