I definitely needed to refer to cliff notes to understand most works by Shakespere. I loved Romeo and Juliet! and MacBeth... and The Taming of the Shrew. I have a tough time with the wording sometimes. Cliff notes fixed that. My high school English teacher had us watch MacBeth in Japanese!! She was a strange woman...but I digress

LOL LOL lol!!! So sorry!!! I didn't mean to come off as whining but I thought 'Oh my goodness, I seriously can't remember!', lol!! It's been THAT long -- I guess with more and more birthdays under my belt, the memory brain bank doesn't have enough storage - need to buy a cloud for my memories!!! LOL!! It's all good though - does it really matter? (I'm more concerned w my memory shortage!)

Don't worry I'm sure others felt the same way, I know I couldn't remember for certain either! I chose yes and it was ok because I think I did but obviously it didn't leave a lasting effect. LOL :)

i agree that books are better than movies.
but sometimes,
i just can't get into reading.
honestly though, i liked the Danes-DiCaprio movie.
except for updating the time-period,
it was as close as you can get to watching the actual play back in Shakespeare's time!
silencebabyy

agreed...i was happy i got to watch the modern version instead of the older one. even though it wasn't hard to decipher the language in the script it did help explain it and like you said it was quite close to the script

I thought it was over rated for the amount of worship it gets. same with the great Gatsby, to kill a mocking bird, and lord of the flies. They were all really....disappointing. as much hype as they got, they didn't live up to my expectations as a reader.

I wish his writing was like that...trust me, the real reading are much, much worse. Example: “These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triump die, like fire and powder

You can read Shakespeare then---that doesn't happen in any of his writing.

Perhaps the one percent are aliens? William Shakespeare and Agatha Christie are among the top most translated authors. Romeo and Juliet should be well-known throughout the Swaggin' world if not the whole planet.

After 32 days you can contact customer support @ support@swagbucks.com. Send them your receipt and make sure you state it was 6 SBs per dollar. They usually fix it within a couple days.

Reading it is much different than seeing it. I didn't get it reading it, but seeing the play was a wonderful experience.
bluela
on 06/04/13
I agree, to a point. It's always amazing to see the play, but I prefer to have read it before seeing it, and then enjoy reading it again after having seen it. For me that's true of any play, because otherwise I get sort of split between the excitement of seeing a production and figuring out the storyline.

I've actually never read it. I read Julius Caesar in high school, though, and that was pretty good. All the other Shakespeare stuff I've read was pretty tedious, especially The Twelfth Night. That was awful.
bluela
on 06/04/13
Oh my gosh, Twelfth Night is fantastic. Julius Caesar is okay---well, very good, but the whole time you know what's going to happen, so it's torture. And then it's still horrible when you get to the end. But of course, very stirring.

We did "Much Ado about Nothing" instead. Although Shakespeare isn't my cup of tea.
bluela
on 06/04/13
Much Ado About Nothing is another good one. I really like almost all of them, so it's easier to pick the ones I don't like as much. But even those are pretty good.

I read the book and watched the movie in my middle school class. Since the movie had no rating everyone watched it. And we saw "The Scene" ;)

your probably better off to deal with movies cause the book gets confusing with the language barrier considering our time frame in comparison to there's,when you cant see it being acted out.

I speak English and read the English versions of the plays, so there was never any language barrier for me.

The only issue with that is the actual movie that you end up watching. The movie they had us watch in school after reading it ended up having dialog just like the book so watching the movie didn't make much of a difference that way.

I had a book that had side margins that 'translated' the tough to understand parts. It made reading it a lot easier.

No. You may as well have read the play. It probably is shorter!

Way too long
bluela
on 06/04/13
All Shakespeare's plays are pretty short, and Rome & Juliet really flies. Unless you read the historical plays in a chunk together (I consider them separately, as I am partial to Henry IV, part II), all the plays are way shorter than an average novel and even shorter than some novellas.
Crazyfury

LOL too long? Romeo and Juliet is a high school literature book. It's really short compared to full novels that contain over 500pages.

Most editions of it are 200 pages... I know, sooooooo long.
bluela

I felt I had to say I loved it because it stands out as a great work and definitely a compelling conflict/romance, but I prefer some of Shakespeare's other plays (The Tempest, Twelfth Night) to it. I think even Hamlet, though at times it is similarly frustrating. Romeo & Juliet always inspires that "no, no, you're screwing everything up!" wailing response from me no matter how many times I read or see it.

The writing is very impressive and the english itself is enjoyable to read... however Shakespeare's tales are very bland and really quite boring. It's terribly unoriginal, and R&J in specific is a very simple story that I didn't find intriguing. Boy loves girl, girl loves boy, boy and girl's parents don't get along so this ain't gonna work. Boy and girl still try to "love" each other, then because things don't work out, they commit suicide. Grand tale really...

I say it was okay because its probably very hard to really understand unless you know the terms and contexts. Otherwise i know the english itself and its play on words is very cool. So if i studied it enough to fully understand it then i' appreciate it more :)
