What Is Ya Favorite Shakespeare Novel?

I hate reading Shakespeare novels but my favorite has to be Julius Caesar.

I love the logics in the story. It teaches you not to let power and success get to U in a negative way.

i think who are not down with"the bard of avon are slighted by his diction.i believe if it was more explicit many mordern writers migth suffer.anyway my best are:hamlet, othello, julius, , taming of the shrew and many more.

when the devout rel;igion of my eyes maintains such falsehood

thenturn tears to fire, (romeo&juliet)sizzling

I really liked Othello, lots of betrayal and distrust. Loved the Merchant of Venice, great courtroom drama.lol

Unabridged versions of Shakespeare would be hellish,so kudos to those who simplified his books(plays, woteva) Made him more appealing to the new school.

Taming of the Shrew and Hamlet

it's a really tough one, i love Julius Ceasar and Twelfth Night and Anthony and Cleopatra and Titus Andronicus and King Lear and everything else he touched ( like the sonnet 'the seven ages of man')

but i think Julius Cesar is the most powerful for me. and my favorite part is mark anthony's speech after julius is murdered.

twelfth night is my first love though, thanks to school.

sorry the jury is out on this one.

plus the thing is, i only like to read it in it's original text (unabridged/translated).

hey guys, on a different note, if u like shakespeare, you'll like geoffrey chaucer's 'the canterbury tales'. it's a hard read, but very interesting.

Romeo and Juliet has always been my favorite. After that, I will pick HAMLET. Was forced to read it in my early years. I love it now though.

Shakespeare's works are incomparable, but of all his works, I appreciate HAMLET most,followed by Romeo and Juliet.

I love Hamlet. Maybe because I'm teaching that to my students now. It's passionate told and evokes a wide variety of emotions.
