I am sure a lot of people-- scholars, theater practitioners and aficionados, literatis-- will agree with me when I say that one of the best things about Shakespeare is the language.
Now, please don't ask me a thing about iambic pentameter or anything like that, because I will end up looking like a pathetic, pretentious pseudo-artist. I know nothing about that, to be very honest. What I am referring to, is its wordiness.
Shakespearean plays are wordy (and lengthy), that we are often given enough chance to Facebook and blog, while in rehearsal.
Some of us actually pay attention.
Not everyone's like me.
