We are deeply skeptical of Shakespeare. Perhaps we have been conditioned by our school experiences. We have been forced to learn his plays. And even though we have been told that he is the world’s best playwright, we suspect that he is overrated and we could write something ten times better if we had the time and motivation. Perhaps we have seen a few movies adaptations of his plays, and the language sounds like it came from last century. Hasn’t anyone written anything as good since then? What’s so special about his plays in the first place?
