The appeal of the people that Shakespeare created
The most famous of playwrights - the most famous of plays. The plots range from comedy to tragedy and the great male and female comic and tragic characters who bring the plots and stories to life are the wonderful people that the great Bard created. Not only do we remember the stories but we remember the people - we all have our favourites. But the plays of William Shakespeare go even further - we actually recall exactly what an individual character says! How many of us can quote from movies that we have seen? There are a few. But not many ! Compare these multi-million dollar movies to the plays of the Bard. Here are a few examples of why the works of the Bard live on for hundreds of years after they were written and why we can all relate to the picture that the character has painted and why the great, the good, the comic and the evil characters of William Shakespeare will never be forgotten:

"This above all: to thine own self be true" Hamlet quote (Act I, Sc. III)

"In my mind's eye".  Hamlet quotation  (Quote Act I, Scene II)

"Cry ' Havoc ' and let slip the dogs of war". Julius Caesar Quote (Act III, Sc. I)

" In the twinkling of an eye". The Merchant of Venice Quote   Act ii. scene. 2

"The course of true love never did run smooth". A Midsummer Night’s Dream Quote (Act I, Scene I)

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet".  Romeo and Juliet Quote (  Act II, Sc. II)

Love, hate, anger, revenge, prejudice, humour, jealousy, revenge, deceit - we can relate to all of the emotions and all of the people that the great Bard has given to us.
