Sir William Shakespeare.

Because he should be a sir, in my opinion at least.

I hope this counts as it is literature, just not books - more plays.

Anyway, I was just wondering what everyone thinks about the works of Shakespeare?

Traditionally, here in the UK at least, theres this kind of "blah" feeling about Shakespeare, and a lot of anger at his works being compulsory in the School curiculum.

Does anyone think hes overrated? Or a genius, but out of our times?

Just thought I'd open up for debate :]

In my opinion, he was the greatest writer of all time. He invented the sit com, he created compelling images of love and jealousy, and he made the audience question life and death, in a time when death was just around the corner. The guy was a genius.

Anyone know Shakespeare invented the word excellent?
