Been reading Shakespeare recently to prepare for class, and I realized that it wasn’t Shakespeare himself I hated but his characters.
Especially the ones in his tragedies.
Take Romeo and Juliet. Just absolute stupidity running through their heads which got them and people they care for dead. This is why I’m having so much trouble planning for class: I hate the text.
And then you realize how brilliant Shakespeare is because you still feel passionately about his work hundreds of years later.
