Just a puzzle.
Yes I think Shakespeare was the greatest ATSer of all.
His words are more present then ever now days.
In his text we find all the Forums here on ATS.


TextWilliam Shakespeare - To be, or not to be (from Hamlet 3/1) To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep; No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep; To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause: there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life; For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of? Thus conscience does make cowards of us all; And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action. - Soft you now! The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons Be all my sins remember'd.

Wasn't it Sir Francis (God of) Bacon who wrote Shakespeares work?
I either read that somewhere or saw it somewhere, of course in a conspiracy site or documentary.

Ohhhh YES!!! There was a movie recently released on this but i didn't get to see it


I LOVE Shakespeare! I credit my HS 11th grade English teacher for my love of all things Shakespeare! Shakespeare, whoever you want to believe who he was, was a great writer! IT doesnt matter to me who he truly was it was the work that was produced that matters to me!

If you read the sonnets from beginning to end, it's like a torrid love affair!

The best way to read Shakespeare if one is lazy and doesn't want to "translate" it is to get the
No Fear Shakespeare but I think it's more fun to figure it out yourself


The No Fear Shakespeare is great because it has Shakespeares version on one side and the modern translated version on the other. When I was in school we had to suffer and translate old english but I feel like I learned more that way and Im thankful I didnt have the easy way out because I dont think I'd have the love I do for his works if I didnt have to use my brain to understand it!

Here are my tributes to Shakespeare, both quotes have personal meaning which is why I have them


That is on my back, obviously.


That is on my left arm
That pic was taken right after it was done which is why it's red.


OLIVIA
(aside) Oh, what a deal of scorn looks beautiful
In the contempt and anger of his lip!
A murderous guilt shows not itself more soon
Than love that would seem hid. Love’s night is noon.
(to VIOLA) Cesario, by the roses of the spring,
By maidhood, honor, truth, and everything,
I love thee so, that, maugre all thy pride,
Nor wit nor reason can my passion hide.
Do not extort thy reasons from this clause,
For that I woo, thou therefore hast no cause,
But rather reason thus with reason fetter.
Love sought is good, but given unsought better.

Twelfth Night
William Shakespeare
Act 3, Scene 1, Page 8

There are a few others that have been claimed as the 'true' authors of his work but in reality, the overwhelming likelihood is that is was indeed Billy Shakespeare.

An ordinary man with an extraordinary mind!

William Shakespeare is one of the three pillars of English Literature (IMHO):

the 1600 King James Bible

the works of Shakespeare

the works of Tolkien

Beowulf doesn't cut it, it's not even English, it's Anglo-Saxon.
