I am half way done with the book of Julius Caesar, and so far, I really do like it. I know alot of people are annoyed with the poetical ways of Shakespeare. But I really am into his language, call me a nerd, but after every verse, I'll translate it into my own words so that I understand what the purpose of that verse is. I find it fun. It's like solving a puzzle. I like the idea of how it's a play, I can just sit and visualize the people performing. What I love so much is the irony, of how Caesar is decietful and where's this mask to hide his trueself from the people to get them to love him. As Cassius does with Brutus. I know that may sound corny, but I find it totally ironic.
