I am currently reading Willaim Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. Are there any Shakespeare fans here?

As an English major in college, Shakespeare was a topic I thoroughly enjoyed. Recently read a novel Shakespeare's Sonnets about Harvard post WWII. A good read that discusses the homosexual theme of some of the sonnets. Also have enjoyed the films from his plays, particularly Richard III and Derek Jarman's Edward II.

I saw one of Shakespeare's works performed excellently by a college dram team. The play was Mid Summer Night's Dream. I saw Romeo and Juliet in film by a director named Zepheretti (first name escapes me). West Side Story is set to a contemporary setting.

Julius Caesar was a good read once I negotiated with the language. Othello is next on my list.
