you know, even despite being a writer, I... do not enjoy shakespeare. at all, as a matter of fact. I can appreciate his contributions to literature and the English language, but I don't find his plays enjoyable???
not shitting on shakespeare here, I do think he was an absolute genius, his literature just isn't my thing. he certainly had amazing skill and I understand why he's such a classic and I do admire him ofc
but edgar allen poe, on the other hand. one of my biggest idols and inspirations right there. I adore poe's work. the masque of the red death is my fav
idk why I decided to share this, I just thought it was interesting?? bc I love writing but I find shakespeare, the king himself, to be boring
