A few years back (2008, specifically) I posted the question Why Do You Hate Shakespeare? What Do You Hate About Shakespeare? with the intent that people googling for related subjects would possibly land there, offer up their thoughts, and start a conversation where perhaps we could turn some folks around. That post still gets traffic and comments.
Sometimes it’s fun though to revisit the archives and get some new opinions.
I don’t expect that most of my regular readers hate Shakespeare, obviously, otherwise they’re going to be ridiculously frustrated reading a blog like this one. But surely many of us have had conversation with someone offline who has launched into the “I hate Shakespeare because….” diatribe. Feel free to share such stories.
