I am proposing an in-depth reading and discussion of a singular Shakespearian play, and that we take a week to discuss each act, so that everyone who wishes can both participate and keep up with reading on a hectic schedule.

Anyone interested?

Oh on that note, I should mention that there are online texts for every play out there.

I voted Hamlet, but Macbeth also really sticks it to you, so to speak.

Just an hour ago I read about seven of Shakespeare's sonnets to my son, part of an ongoing campaign to provide a counterbalance to League of Legends.

I never say no to Shakespeare. :) Macbeth is a good starting point, not just because it's a personal favourite.

Henry V is the best, IMO.

Macbeth and Julius Caesar are nice as well.

I've always like Titus ANdronicus.
