    He is a great legend! It is a sin to compare him with others!

    P.S What my colleague Orran Ainmire forgot to say to Whitt Bell, to state the obvious, is that Romeo and Juliet is a play not a book. Shakespeare's plays and poems, those that are extant, sadly many are not, were written into books later. His genius was not just the written word and his wondrous gift to English Literature but also his exceptional insight into psychological profiles, human character and he human mind. To grasp none of this is indeed a tragedy. When work was graded for whom did the bell toll.

    William Shakespeare was also a man who had to make a living from the words his pen produced and I have observed in his Dramatic Finale a recipe for success.

    Shakespeare loved a corpse
    strewn, Globe Theatre stage.
    As audience universal appeal, twas
    all Elizabethan, dramatic finale rage.

    Is my 'Dramatic Finale' analysis of this. Any comments? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

Best Poem of William Shakespeare

Fear No More

Fear no more the heat o' the sun;
Nor the furious winter's rages,
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages;
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney sweepers come to dust.

Fear no more the frown of the great,
Thou art past the tyrant's stroke:
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dread thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy ...

Read the full of Fear No More

Sonnet Lxvi

Tired with all these, for restful death I cry,
As, to behold desert a beggar born,
And needy nothing trimm'd in jollity,
And purest faith unhappily forsworn,
And guilded honour shamefully misplaced,
And maiden virtue rudely strumpeted,
And right perfection wrongfully disgraced,
And strength by limping sway disabled,
And art made tongue-tied by authority,
