For the most part when I talk about Shakespeare, I’m preaching to the choir. Odds are that the people who are coming by this blog are already fans of Shakespeare and all we can ever really hope for is an exchange of ideas / interpretations about the plays.
What I’m curious about, though, is the Shakespeare “haters”. Seems like it’s really a love/hate thing with the man. I don’t find many people that just have no opinion. I’m curious why people don’t like him, because I want to see if I can change that. Was it too hard to learn the plays in school? Did you start too early and not have the life experience? Was it all about the language? Couldn’t connect with the characters?
I’m honestly curious. I’m hoping somebody drops in and sheds some light. I think you’re missing out.
