    I have been a Bardaholic ever since I discovered his work in class in High School. The secret (if there is one) is that our teacher had us Read the Work Aloud. Bingo. As I've just discovered this list, and as we celebrate his birth in exactly 1 week, here's a celebration of the day I discovered my love of the Bard:

    The Earth Corroborates My Find

    Stranger in town, I am alone
    as I leave the Harvard COOP
    (rabbit warren of books, books, books)
    pleased with myself and with my find
    for under my arm is a hard cover edition
    impeccably edited by G.B. Harrison
    of The Complete Works of Shakespeare

    As I trudge through Harvard Square
    my feet crunch and sink through the outer
    crust of snow, frozen thread from sky
    to earth, that sucks at me as mud
    but winter’s chill on my bones is overcome
    by the warmth of this my find
    for all but the apocryphal plays
    are now at my fingertips
    destined to be well marked and thumbed
    in my Shakespearean peregrinations:

    From The Comedy of Errors
    through the Henries and the Richards
    to the sublime valedictory
    of The Tempest, all here
    All here Venus and Adonis
    The Rape of Lucrece
    the cryptic, enigmatical
    Phoenix and the Turtle
    and the Sonnets, open windows
    to the Bard himself
    all of whom I feel I’ve freed

    These many lives I carry with me
    lost in this realization, when
    a bird chirps my senses back
    to the moment – such a moment!
    aware now for the first time
    the sun is peeking through
    winter’s miasma, melting icicles
    evanescent on the trees, revealing tiny
    mighty green buds a’growin’
    and up through the snow

    crocus pushes toward the sky
    my leaping heart begins to sing
    we join the chorus, ghosts and I
    for it’s now Hallelujah Spring!

    Born and dead on Avon the same date,23rd April
    Romantic playwright Shakespeare none can ignore!
    He ever lives in his 32 Plays and 154 Sonnets......!

    His plays are mirror to life reflecting about humans
    In seven ages of men opening the curtain to show
    As child, pupil, lover, soldier, courtier, wise, old man!

    What a quintessence of precious dust man is, he says!
    Warrior, philosophic in nature, gentle and noble man
    Surely cannot take revenge on murderer of his father!

    Unlike Hamlet, Prince Hal jovial with fat Falstaff, yet
    At the time of emergency fights bravely for nation
    And proves himself to be worthy son to his father!

    That character Shakespeare develops further into
    His favourite hero Richard III and gives a sketch
    And full picture to the best he can to immortality!

    Comedy or Tragedy or history, he shows his skill,
    Power and range depicting characters none can forget
    And refer in life parallel happenings to one and all!

    Whoever loved, that loved not at first sight.....?
    Love at first sight we came to know from him first!
    Romeo and Juliet & Antony and Cleopatra live long!

    Star crossed lovers' hearts stricken with arrow
    Cupid boy releases from his bow never fails and
    Lovers live or die together to be immortals ever!

    Cleopatra's serpentine beauty captures hearts of
    Emperor Julius Caesar and his faithful friend Antony
    Till death and suicides herself by the bite of snake!

    He creates romantic love life controlled by Nature
    At first and at the end of his career makes Nature
    Go under the control of man envisaging future too!

    For him life is such stuff as dreams are made on
    And is rounded off with a sleep at the end sure!
    Closing curtain so in blank verse he ends in sonnets!

    I love him about his theater, tragic drama and poems. Helmat is a great creation of him.

Best Poem of William Shakespeare

All The World's A Stage

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in ...

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,
