I just finished reading "Merchant of Venice" and I <3 <3 <3 that book. Anyone have any recommendations for what I should read next by him. Basically anything is fair game, since I've only read MOV so far.

Othello. It's easily the best.

I've read 10 of his works this semester alone. I've had just about enough of this pretentious shit.

I was an actor in A Midsummer Night's Dream. I got one of the lead rolls because I was teh creatives. (oh to be 11 again.

A good Shakespeare related film is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead. I love this film.

Thanks guys, I think i'll go for both Othello and Macbeth next.

"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" sounds interesting, Per. I'll be sure to check that out.

"Et tu, Brute?"

Yeah, Julius Caesar was pretty sweet. Lotsa people died. Then again, a lot of Shakespeare involves much dying....

You surprised me Maria. I was almost sure that you loved his works. I don't know, maybe I thought like that because I can't understand both of your English.
Anyway, I'm not a fan of his works but like Maria I recommend Machbeth and A Midsummer Night's Dream AND its movie. Rupert Everett is in it. Rupert Everett!! <333

The thing about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, is that they are two characters from Hamlet. And we only hear that they die carrying a message to the king of England for Hamlet. So the playwright wrote a play about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern as though they were stars, without actually knowing anything about them.

ehhh, Macbeth. Only thing I remember is the lame movie, with its equally lame fight scene, funny though...

Yeah, I love that play. Gary Oldman is great in the film.

My favorites are King Lear and Henry V. If you're interested in a comedy, I'd suggest Much Ado About Nothing.

You really should post more Dive. I never understood why you loved that Offspring Fan Forum so much.

I liked Venus and Adonis and Titus Andronicus. MacBeth was fine, I suppose.

hahaha, I can't believe you just said that. Big Friendly Giant!

The only shakespear play I've read is Mcbeth but that was in the 9th grade I think. Although I liked the message and plot, it was really hard for me to understand at the time. I've been sort of put off by him since then.

You used to post disproportionately much at the offspring fan forum on that old proboards site. It was pretty much You, Nofx Kid, myself, and sometimes Vicky. that was like a year or two ago.

Oh, I remember that one. It's not that I loved it, it was just marginally better than the garbage that was the official forum.

Titus Andronicus is the best, easily.

Jesus Christ, CO1 has changed so much. Do you all remember how he used to post? And the way he used to look? HUGE difference.
