Much Ado About Shakespeare

OK, so I'm doing another challenge. After Ms Andrea at The Little Bookworm and I traded Shakespeare quotes one day on Twitter, she put this challenge up - so I felt like I HAD to participate. The challenge is very simple:

The challenge runs from September 1, 2009 - April 26, 2009 (Shakespeare's Birthday). Read 6 of any Shakespeare's works or any book inspired by a Shakespeare play. You can also watch any movie from or inspired by a Shakespeare play.
So, I've been reading Shakespeare for my Fill in the Gaps challenge, so this will hopefully goad me along :P.

My List, then:

  • The Tempest
  • The Complete Sonnets
  • The Long Poems (Rape of Lucrece, The Phoenix and the Turtle, Venus and Adonis, A Lover's Complaint, The Passionate Pilgrim)
  • Othello
  • All's Well That End's Well
  • Shakespeare in Love (Cause, I was told it's good, and never saw it)
There you are, there you have it. Wish me luck!

Reading back in time til April 2009?

Hmm...the challenge is tempting, there are several of the Bard's works I have yet to read, and I do have a Complete Works on my shelf. Me thinks thou art evil...So much for not joining another challenge, I'm game.

Thanks for joining challenge. I enjoyed trading quotes.
What does it say that one of my favorites is:
"it must not be denied but I am a plain-dealing villain"?
