|My Shakespearean Page|
In my opinion, William Shakespeare is the most distinguished, accomplished poet of all time. I admire him greatly because his brilliant words captured my interest when I was in 6th grade; I did my book report on 'The Merchant of Venice'. From then on, Reading Shakespeare's has been one of my activities I do in my spare time.
Some would have the overwhelming sense when they read Shakespeare's plays because they were written in old English. Most of the time I have a handbook with me to help me understand some of the verses. I read the plays at my leisure time, so I don't feel compelled that reading the plays is a duty.
It's no wonder why so many people love reading and quoting those lines. Even D.H. Lawrence had something to say about Shakespeare:
"When I read Shakespeare I am struck with wonder
that such trivial people should muse and thunder in
such lovely language." --D.H. Lawrence
Even though my original idea of this page was to post my favorite Shakespeare's quotes, I felt obligated to post his brief chronology, otherwise the page would lack the essence of my tribute to his works.
