honestly neither did I until I was exposed to two things.

1. Romeo and Juliet with Leo ! Woof ! that smexy stud broke it down for me in a way i could digest enough to read the true play.

2. Patrick Stewart's quotes from TNG. Exposed me to some of the finer bits of literature. Also made me want to go out and read some of the works for myself.

Y'know...if people are playing ST:O, and have no idea who William Shatner is, they need to be shot out of the torpedo tube.

I couldn't really get into Leo Dicaprio's Romeo and Juliet. My introduction was with Franco Zeffirelli's adaptation of it, released in 1968 (though, I am not quite that old...almost, but not quite.) I have always loved history and literature, so I double majored in English (Lit Focus) and History in college.

I love Shakespeare! Good Shakespeare that is.

My favorite play of his is A Midsummer Night's Dream followed closely by Twelfth Night. I also really enjoyed Hamlet and Julius Caesar. Not a fan of Romeo and Juliet and most of it's film adaptations. My favorite adaptation of Romeo and Juliet has been West Side Story.

Ok, well I did like Picard's quotes, but that was more because Picard was saying them than because I thought they were really good. As I will mention below, there are some plays of his that I like. Just not most of them.

I also like Twelfth Night and Hamlet. However, I can't stand A Midsummer Night's Dream. Too silly. And I tend to have mixed feelings about Romeo and Juliet. But this is my favorite adaption of it

Patrick Stewart is a Shakespearean (sp) trained actor.. from over there in Eeengland.. Plus his accent.. so hearing him quote stuff will likely cause a tingling sensation.
