Renaissance playwright who has been ruined by English teachers and academics who insist on over-analyzing his plays and sonnets.
Shakespeare wrote Hamlet to be ENJOYED not ripped apart in Lit class until it has no more meaning.

A writer of plays. He basically wrote plays to entertain people. He did not do it to show off his Iambic Pentameter, or what ever it is called. He did not write them to show off his grammer, he did not write them to show off his use of adjectives, and he sure as heck did not write them to show off his, and point out his use of phrases.

He wrote them to entertain the masses. That is all. He wrote them like a artist makes a movie. When we see a movie, do most of us look at the plot or do we examine the use of words and scenary to find out why a part makes us feel "sad"?

Most of the information we learn from English class about the use of phrases and words is just the complicating a natural feeling. The raping and ripping appart of his writings is a reason many students do not grow a appreciation of him and his work. As a matter of fact, many students grow a deep disgust, and sometimes hatreof him and his work.

ps. His work does relate to modern times. ex. Revenge in some of his plays.
student: I HATE Shakespeare!!!!!!!

Parent: Relax, you only hate him because of how the school ruins his work......

(Forgive me of my spelling in this.)

Undeniably the most influential man in the porno industry. By altering many of the titles from his thirty-seven plays, the Shakespearean theme in the bedroom--or anywhere else for that matter--has been an immediate success, beginning with 'The Secret Sex Lives of Romeo and Juliet' (1969). Other raunchy adaptations of the famous bard's work consist of titles like: A Midsummer Night's Cream, A Midsummer's Wet Dream, A Midsummer Night's Creampie, King Rear, Loves Labia Licked, Hardcore Lady Macbeth, In The Flesh (an adaptation of Macbeth), Measure for Measure (involving two gay department store salesmen), The Taming of the Screw, Titties Andronicus, Ebony Andronicus, Much Ado About Nuttin', Two Gentlemen DO Verona, Two Gentlemen IN Verona, Two Gentlemen In Each Other, The Merchant of Penis, Penis and Adonis, The Merry Whores of Windsor, The Merry Wives of Bukkake, The Tragedy of Julius Creamer, Julius' Semen, As You Like It... Over and Over, As You Lick It, The Best Part of Henry VI, Anal Laments: Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Julian, Hamlet's Hoe, Hamlet Gets a Handjob, X Hamlet, Twelfth Night of Sodomy, Measure for Pleasure, Othelia/The Whore of Venice Beach, Othello: Dangerous Desire, Alls Well When Swallowed Well, The Rape of Lucrecia, The Rape of Lucy, The Rape of Luke (disputable), The Temptress, The Two Horny Kinsman, Shannon Does Shakespeare, and The Sodomy of Cleopatra. These titles can be located on various sites, like,, and for the release dates, etc. In 2001, the 'Bardcore' films were nominated for 10 Adult Video News Awards, including a best actress nomination for the porn legend Nina Hartley, as Titania. Amherst Professor Richard Burt is one of the most notable scholars studying Shakespeare-riffed porn--see for more information. And although the notorious poet is long since departed, his influences in the Porn Industry will not soon be forgotten--especially to those of us who enjoy masturbating to orgasmic shouts of Juliet in a horrible, yet fitting, Early Modern English accent. After all, it was Shakespeare who said it best: “making the beast with two backs” (Othello, I, i).
"The only other glimpse of Shakespeare comes when Othello wonders how Cassio got hold of Desdimona’s strawberry-spotted handkerchief. Or, in this version, her leopard-print thong." -Richard Burt

"Finally, an adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew for everyone who thought Ten Things I Hate About You was too cleverly written." -RB

"Shakespeare left the explicit sex out of his version, but you can imagine he’d approve of, for example, Lady Macbeth’s leather-dom style and Banquo’s ghost presiding over an hallucinatory orgy." -RB

"Montagues don’t fall in love with Capulets, they just have sex with them." -RB

“'My heart is Montague,' explains Mercutio, 'but my prick is nonpartisan.'” -RB

History's greatest playwright, and one of the greatest poets.

He used English like Hendrix used the guitar.
Just get an annotated version of one of Shakespeare's works if you can't understand it.
