OTHELLO! I read it and was completely blown away. The entire idea is still something that is so easy to relate to. It's all about jealousy and believing what people tell you. Oh it is amazing. I vowed that my first daughter is going to be named Emilia because of that play.

A Midsummer Night's Dream.
We read it in school this year.
It's a comedy and there's fairies and guy's head is turned into a donkey's head.
I liked the magic and that in the end the lover's problems all work out.
It's the only Shakespeare play I've ever read so this probably isn't much help.
People tell me Romeo and Juliet is a must read though. Everyone knows the basics. Tragic lovers with warring parents. Both lovers die. It's very sad.

I just read Romeo and Juliet and I HATED it. That's probably because Romeo's impulsiveness and melodrama annoy me to no end!
My favorite Shakespeare play is deffinitely Much Ado About Nothing. I LOVE the whole Benedick/Beatrice thing!

The comedies are okay. I find that I'm more entertained by the tragedies, especially Titus Andronicus. Now THAT is class.

I Love Shakespeare's tragedies so much...if u want to read a tragedy u must start with Macbeth...It tells us how ambition takes our souls into control and how it arranges our lives...It's really wonderful work. Then u continue with Othello...If u ask me U should read tragedies firstly in order to see human failures clearly
