Shakespeare Plays Ranked in Order of How Easy They Are to Study

By ElodieJanuary 23, 2018
At best, Shakespeare’s plays are bit difficult. At worst, they are a baffling jumble of non-words and should be thrown into the fire immediately. I spend most of my time looking for Shakespeare lines that I can take out of context to suit my own nefarious purposes, so I More  →

QUIZ: What's Your Shakespearean Pick-Up Line?

By ElodieJanuary 18, 2018
Do pick-up lines actually work? I wouldn’t know. I’ve never tried one myself, and whenever someone tries one on me I naturally just assume they’re trying to steal my wallet. Maybe pick-up lines would have a better overall success rate if they were SHAKESPEAREAN as opposed ... More  →
