I've been sitting here for about an hour or two flicking through websites about books, movies made into books, quotes from books and all sorts of other random things to do with books and I can't help but think about different things to do with books.
I'm not entirely sure how many people take the time to flick through and read the posts I put up, but I do have a question that I've been pondering over a lot lately and I just thought I might ask it here and see if anyone has an opinion on the matter.
It's actually a little series of questions but I am curious as to your thoughts.
Have you read anything or seen anything done by William Shakespeare?
If yes, what are your thoughts on his work? Do you think it's relevant in today's society?
Do you think that Shakespeare's unimportant or do you find his writing to be magnificent?
Also just as a little side note I'm curious as to whether or not people from the US study Shakespeare very much?
I really love Shakespeare, his language use is amazing. I've had the chance to experience several of his plays in reading them, on film and on stage. I even did a little stint acting in one little snippet of a Shakespearian play. At first, I had to study Shakespeare for english at school and my first thoughts were "oh man, this is going to be so boring" but I somehow managed to fall in love with the words of William Shakespeare and am completely in awe of how he writes. I also think that Shakespeare is definitely relevant in today's society because his plays are all about human emotions that are still experienced in this day and age.
Well, thats my opinion on the matter. I'm just curious to hear anyone else's.
