by William Shakespeare
Classic Flashback #6
I read William Shakespeare's classic play Julius Caesar in high school as required reading, so my review is delivered in the viewpoint of the ancient high school me...
Our high school English teacher made us read Julius Caesar. I thought I would hate it but it was pretty cool. Lots of fights, knives, and cool speeches. Even the dudes in the local gang thought it was pretty cool. So I decided to read more Shakespeare and chose Romeo and Juliet. Not so cool. Lots of cuddling and no sex. Shakespeare just copied West Side Story which had better fights and cooler dancing. So I told my teacher I wanted a Shakespeare play that had more sex and violence. All he said was go read King Lear.
