Shakespeare, I love him. 

I remember reading Romeo and Juliet in English class senior year in high school, Mister Faust spent time teaching us how to interpret Shakespearean iambic pentameter, such a gift because he unveiled an amazing world. After Romeo and Juliet, Mister Faust introduced us to The Taming of the Shrew and what a revelation, Shakespeare had a sense of humor, he wasn’t a stodgy old bore, he had a gaudy sense of humor and for a high schooler it doesn’t get better than that in English class.
