    I went from not really liking Shakespeare (can't pinpoint when, but it was roughly around the time that David Tennant's Hamlet was on telly) to really quite enjoying it. Loved the Hollow Crown (BBC's adaptations of Richard II, Henry IV and Henry IV), and quite liked the Merry Wives of Windsor. I live fairly near Stratford-upon-Avon, so we can go and bask in home place warmth and such.

    I've only really read Romeo and Juliet and Measure for Measure (with the Duchess of Malfi for my A Level) but I loved Measure! And Malfi.

    I'm not really a fan of his plays and I'm being forced to study Anthony and Cleopatra for A2. But Macbeth is pretty interesting.

    No, but I would really like to read Shakespeare! Is any of his works available on their original form online?

    Love Shakespeare and have done since I was very young. I'm not sure I could pick a favourite to read, maybe King Lear. The most fun one I've seen performed was Midsummer Night's Dream, though.

    macbeth! it's the one everyone always brushes off- especially rn- because it's standard reading for GCSEs, but it's such a good play! especially when you get into all the context behind it and hidden meanings woven into the words- it's so cleverly done! also there's a lot of conspiracy about certain scenes because they're really unlike shakespeare's style of writing- it's genuinely really interesting to read and write up about. and it has the greatest shakespeare quote of all time: "methinks i'm too savage" (jks, it's: "what, you egg?")

    Oh no, I wasn't so lucky. It was performed in London but I live up North. It was streamed at my local Plaza but it was still amazing! Tom Hiddleston is an amazing Thespian

    I've always enjoyed The Merchant of Venice the most. I think my other two favourites are Othello and King Lear.
