Greatest Works by Shakespeare
The Top Ten
Shakespeare, as we know, is why considered to be no. 1. Hamlet is the creation which made him #1 as well as it is one of top 5 plays ever written by anyone. Divyanshu says vote it
Hamlet has the most lines of any of Shakespeare's character. It is usually the most quoted play of his all his works. - mgenet
Superb and mind blowing work, better than his other plays as well as the best considered play ever. Vote it.
Watch the version with Mel Gibson, and Helena Bonham-Carter, it rocks! - 2234
Amazing tragedy story of greed and jealousy!
Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. How awesome is that!
Great story of betrayal and paranoia! - HeavyDonkeyKong
Double, double toil and trouble. Fire burn and caldroun bubble. So much better than this Harry Potter nonsense.
Awesome superb mind blowing... not these all comments for it. It is simply best love story written by non other than shakespeare. Divyanshu says vote it for the sake of love.
I just watched the movie of it, last night and I wasn't that sad... But now I just think about it and say... What happends next? Why did this happen? Oh man, I feel bad for those fantasy characters crying looking at each others dead body, it is a very sad movie. - 2234
I actually like the Dire Straits song more than the story ROmeo and Juliet by the geezer Shakespeare but still Romeo and Juliet's my all time favourite
Shall I compare the to a summer's day...
King lear is awesome please read it one of the greatest story ever absolutely famous and incredible please vote for it
Mark Antony's speech was awesome
I hate how the assassinated Julius Caesar (yes, I am aware it was based on the true story of Caesar. I just hated that). He was a cool guy.
Political... I love antony's speech... And brutus... Too...
This should be #1!
I think it be cool if they made a spongebob, rugrats, or garfield version of it.
My class is doing Shakespeare and I am titania
Lol some of the characters deseeve to be bullied for having ugly names hippolyta sounds like a hippo and puck sounds like a hockey puck - Ihateschool
A great work of emotion. With delicious villainy and terrible pain, this play is one of the best tragedies ever written
It is best written by shakespeare characters are amazing shylock antonio basonio really nice please read it I am sure you will like it
I like the rhythm of it
How cool to be openly gay when it was a capital crime.
The Tempest is Shakespeare's final treatise on what it is to be human and to be mortal. Prospero's epilogue, in which he renounces all of his 'charms' or powers and is 'set free' is similarly Shakespeare's renouncing of the hold he had over his audiences with the realisation that he has reached the pinnacle that his writing will ever be able to attain. Love, mortality, and the struggle for power - the strongest forces that drive humanity - underpin this play which is undoubtedly one of the greatest pieces of literature ever written.
Diggin this play since it was short, less shakespeare to read in class
Prospero the character is good in this play and also shakespeare shows his ability in this play how deep he can think and use his brain and intelligence for writing please vote for it it should be in top 5
What is this doing way down here? - BKAllmighty
Whoever reads it agrees
Beatrice & Benedick. 'enough said. - datrandomguy
Should be fifth behind Hamlet, Romeo and Juliet, Othello and Macbeth.
Saw this at the Globe Theater and thought it was fantasticly well performed and a delight to watch. Despite the weather being horribly hot and the air feeling sticky, I still managed to enjoy the wonderful work of Shakespear.
If you're not angry enough, try Timon. what a turn on for anger!
A great tragic-comedy and one of Shakespeare's most perfect plays, this one truly deserves a spot in the top ten! Tolkien would make a better case than I do... - dawntreader
