    The fact that they are one-hit wonder writers does not mean that the works they produced are of less value or that they produced nothing else, only that these authors are known solely for their main...

    Dante corpus is not even remotely comparable to Shakespeare's, both he and Cervantes and Virgil are one hit wonder artists. Shakespeare just did more and more in an unparalleled variety. An artist...

    Shakespeare. He is better written, more...

    Shakespeare.

    He is better written, more complex and deeper, Homer has been improved over the years, Shakespeare so far not. Virgil is more polished, then came Dante, then Shakespeare and we still...

    Agree. It's silly to compare writers, but it's always interesting to examine the production of each, like it or not the greatest diversity of works influences a lot in assessing the writers, both...

    What? arbitrary descriptions do not valid your argument, characters and language of Shakespeare do not work without plot. Hamlet and Iago work all their strategy by the plot (exposition, climax,...
  6. Agree to disagree then. You would say that...

    Agree to disagree then. You would say that Homer's plot is not great nor his when he narrated a already known story ? the same thing with Shakespeare.



    Well, you do "Literature does not exist...
  7. The theatrical plot had to be worked out, sorry...

    The theatrical plot had to be worked out, sorry if I confuse, Shakespeare just took the stories (not the plot, not the narrative skeleton), Shakespeare's plays do not follow the classical decorum,...
  8. Shakespeare's plays are worked by the plot made...

    Shakespeare's plays are worked by the plot made exclusively for the theater, he had to create a storyline that made parallel with the breaking of classical rules. Othello has one of the best plots...
  9. You're right in saying that the list is...

    You're right in saying that the list is Anglo-centric, though the arguments of writers are the best in the book.

    As to Homer, since I never read Homer in Greek, I do not want to do a bad judgment....
  10. Very unlikely, I doubt that many intellectuals...

    Very unlikely, I doubt that many intellectuals would agree that Homer is greater example of aesthetic and human condition than Shakespeare. Shakespeare's body of work is also vastly larger. But...
  11. Greatest novel (or any other literary form) is...

    Greatest novel (or any other literary form) is hard to say one, as every work of art is completely debatable whether a classic book is greater than the other.

    Greatest writer is easier, more...

    Somehow is a historical tragedy as Julius Caesar, the sequence does not matter, Shakespeare wrote him between 1591-1592 before his Henriad sequence. So I think you can read it with no worries. It's a...

    Good point, Clopin, my post in reference to Ibsen...

    Good point, Clopin, my post in reference to Ibsen was partly due to the fact that their plays are more acted than read, which had Bernard Shaw claimed. Shakespeare's plays are so read as they are...

    The notion that Shakespeare was made to be acted rather than read was outdated even in Romanticism, certainly this is true for playwrights as Ibsen or Chekhov, but not Shakespeare, certainly see a...

    Best considers it as a Christian king at Church' service, as Canterbury puts it:

    But that his wildness, mortified in him,
    Seem'd to die too; yea, at that very moment
    Consideration, like an...
