Shakespeare- Overrated?

December 13, 2009
I've studied Shakespeare/ Elizabethean era ever since grade 6. And 3 years later, i still am. King of the Shadows, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's dream and Romeo and Juliet. Shakespeare himself or his plays are not boring. But constantly studying it IS boring, no offense. I mean, this is an opinionated work and I can see for those who like him get offended, but it wasn't intentional. Yes he is one of the best authors or doo-di-da ever, and yes, he will easily be remembered, honored and respected for his work, but we need to move on. We need a new topic to study, find a new author that had great talents and an amazing story like Shakespeare did. Stories that have to do with young students, that have a connection with out life,

Good point- Shakespeare was a great writer but not the best writer ever. Thanks for writing this- it's a good article!
