    Sonnet 76

    Why is my verse so barren of new pride, So far from variation or quick change? Why with the time do I not glance aside To new-found methods and to compounds strange? Why write I still all one, ever the same, And keep invention in a noted weed, That every word doth almost tell my...

    Hamlet

    "What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god!......" Just, beautiful .

    Me Too

    I think I was relatively late to the whole Shakespeare thing - I only remember getting to read Othello at school (no, I didn't go to a great school).  And once, there was a school trip to see Othello being performed.   That is my only memory of my Shakespeare...

    My Favorite Romeo and Juliet

    Farewell! God knows when we shall meet again. I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins, That almost freezes up the heat of life: I'll call them back again to comfort me: Nurse! What should she do here? My dismal scene I needs must act alone. Come, vial. What if...

    Loving Hate; Romeo And Juliet (Sonnet)

    I wrote this sonnet for my english class. It is not, obviously, written by Shakespeare. However, it is about one of the great classics: Romeo and Juliet Hate that lived in my heart unrecognized Yonder is the dewy morning anew The light it brought stings eyes that once despised...

    Romeo and Juliet

    My favorite quotes from Romeo and Juliet: "But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Juliet is the sun. Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon, Who is already sick and pale with grief, That thou her maid art far more fair than she...

    Those Lips That Love's Own Hand Did Make

    Sonnet 145Those lips that Love's own hand did makeBreathed forth the sound that said "I hate"To me that languished for her sake;But when she saw my woeful state,Straight in her heart did mercy come,Chiding that tongue that ever sweetWas used in giving gentle doom,And taught it...

    Huge Fan

    When I was little, my mom used to read Shakespeare to me. Of course, I didn't understand it because I was a small child, but the language was soothing. As I got older, I always looked fondly on his work, but I never read much of it until I was in high school. While the...

    Taming of the Shrew

    "Thy husband is thy lord, thy life, thy keeper, Thy head, thy sovereign, one that cares for thee, And for thy maintence commits his body To painful labor both by sea and land, To watch the night in storms, the day in cold, Whilst though liest warm at home, secure and...

    To Be Or Not To Be From Hamlet

    To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heart-ache and the...

    Stratford-upon-avon

    I love Shakespeare! I have recently went on a trip to Ireland and the UK. While we were there, we went to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's Hometown. I went through two of the five Shakespeare houses. It was amazing to see where that amazing man grew up and lived. I also...

    All The World's A Stage Monologue

    "All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. As, first the infant, Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms. And then the whining school-boy, with...

    Stunning

    If it were simply the case that he had nailed the human condition, or asked the fundamental questions of the human condition at least, that would be enough to make him a great playwright. If it were simply the case that he write plays in such beautiful English that even nearly...

    To The Man Who Taught Me All About Love

    I can honestly say that William Shakespeare may be one of the first men outside my family that I have ever loved. What caused my ardor you ask? As You Like It - I saw it for the first time with an uncle a few years ago and again tonight. As far as plays go, this may as well be a...

    The phrase to "catch a cold" was first used by William Shakespeare. So was "the worlds your oyster", "a foregone conclusion", "all of a sudden" and "in a pickle".
