I'm a sucker for Shakespeare, and whenever guys read out scenes from his plays passionately my knees get weak. I LOVE the Elizabethan/ Shakesperean English language- so much that I will fully get my boyfriend to read out certain passages of the play to me, and I will force him to say the words as he means them, he said I'm a weird geek, but he finds it cute.
I don't want to scare him, is this weird?

Nah, it's nice to be passionate about something. Doesn't make you weird.

No it shows you have soul, not to be too precious. It is a great gift to appreciate such beauty and be moved by it. Few can nowadays sadly.

Shakespeare is the most wonderful poet in the language, utterly sublime.

Have you tried the sonnets? Don't go for the gay ones of course, but sonnet 18, or 29 for example?

Sorry for the delay in replying, and glad you looked it up. It is delicious, isn't it?

If you like love poetry, have you tried John Donne? A contemporary of Shakespeare (ish) he wrote some wonderful stuff too:

"If ever any beauty I did see, which I desired and got,
T'was but a dream of thee..."
