People really show themselves up when they say anyone that likes Shakespeare' are just showing off and can't possibly be genuine.

Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Surely the snobs are the ones who argue that someone of relatively humble origins couldn't have written the plays?

Just downloading the audiobook of Walden: a Life in the Woods as it goes.

People of a country where English is not their mother tongue use English in the same way - they'll argue the toss in their own language then fire off a coup de grâce in English to clearly state "I'm educated - don't fucking bother arguing any more with me, you thick peasant!"

It’s used by certain people like Latin is to show their ‘superior intellect’ with a bit of comedy thrown in…..fruit of the snobs….

I'll give him The Crucible. That's a cracking play. But American literature is just bloody turgid. I usually swerve American writers.

Iron Duke 3:02 Sat Mar 5
Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Yes. People only pretend to like him to get an acting job, pass GCSE’s or to appear intellectual. It’s all in a foreign language and his comedies are shit

Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Of Mice and Men is one of the most tedious books ever written.

El Scorchio 6:21 Fri Mar 4
Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Absolutely not. I think his work is really unappreciated, but has had an undeniable everlasting impact and influence on culture, language and storytelling globally.

So you didn't study it and yet you've somehow managed to form an "informed" opinion. Fancy that!

Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Millions of GCSE students have been bored senseless by his work. Thank fuck I didn't have to study it, Catcher in the Rye, The Crucible, Of Mice and Men, The Red Pony, Kestrel for a Knave much better!

The Swedish for actor is Skådespelare. Always found that a bit spooky.

Re: Is Shakespeare overrated?
Never been in a pub named after him that was decent.

Admittedly, only tried the Birmingham and Durham ones.
