Just a quick question, looking for a quick, one word answer. When you use Shakespeare as an adjective, what do you think it means? Does it mean quality, as in “Just write me a quick blog post, I don’t need it to be Shakespeare”? Does it mean sad, as in “Shakespearean in its tragedy”? Perhaps grand, sweeping, epic? A story of Shakespearean proportion! Or maybe difficult? “It all sounds like Shakespeare to me!” Perhaps pompous? “Look who we got here, we got ourselves a real Shakespeare!” Maybe “pompous” isn’t the right word there. Superior? The easy answer is probably “All of the above”, but where’s the fun in that? Let me phrase it differently – when you hear it, what’s the first usage you think of?
