Oh Shakespeare...

Little did Mr. Shakespeare know that 400 years later college students would be dragging their feet in writing papers about his plays. I mean c'mon, do you really think he wrote Othello with the intention of people writing papers about it, or was he just looking for an honest living? I believe it was the latter.

  1. I think he was writing movie scripts without movies being invented yet, so that 400 years later when I was feeling bored and lonely on a Friday night, I could watch "Much Ado About Nothing" and laugh at how ridiculous everyone in it was. I think schools ruin Shakespeare by making us read all his tragedies and expecting us to take them seriously.

  2. I think schools ruin Shakespeare by making us read him. Period. It would be the equivalent of a high school student 400 years from now reading the script to a Steven Spielberg movie for a class on literature.
