Hmm, i'm just curious. Do you people in America study anything by Shakespeare in your English lessons at all? If so, what do you think of his writings?

I love all the metaphors he used, overall his writing is well done, though in an honors course it isn't fun trying to do an eight page anaylitcal essay in two nights. :p

Meh. Its okay. I still remember one monologue we had to memorize two years ago from Romeo and Juliet.

Romeo: "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 but sick and plae with grief that thou her maid art far more fair than she. Be not her maid, for she is envious; her vestial liverly is but sick and green, and none but fools do wear it, cast it off! It is my lady, O it is my love, O that she knew she were!"

Theres som more, where he talks about stars and hands and such, but I can't really remember it...
