A bit of a random post – it appears as though this is in fact a regular occurrence actually. Anyway, last night I decided to watch the good old Romeo and Juliet on DVD. Not the oldest version, the one with Leonardo DiCaprio – arguably the better version by far. Not everyone will agree with this I know. For those who don’t know already, that title is from Hamlet (Act III, scene I).
So, where am I going with this? Well, for the College of Law I have to write a short response to a quote from an old Shakespeare play. As it stands, I think I know which angle I shall take but as people may agree, the annoying part is writing it. Extra points are given for originality (obviously) and also for a well written piece in terms of complexity and thought.
This post isn’t about that project however, it’s more of a question to anyone reading. The question is simple and is as follows:
- What is your most preferred Shakespeare piece and why? -
It doesn’t have to be a detailed answer, just simply the name and a short reason why. Any reason will do – but try and do better than `cos’ I like it’ or so on. Just a little thought for you, I’m curious as to how many would take an interest in Shakespeare still in today’s society and how many would actually write about it.
Don’t be shy!
