Shakespeare Challenge

Miss Erin has a challenge. To set up some kind of Shakespeare goal for yourself. Here is mine: read all of Shakespeare's plays. Tragedies, Comedies, and Histories. No Deadline. But, there is a catch. This time around. I will be reading translations of his work. Still the play, just in simpiler english. I would like to understand it if at all possible. I will then choose 1 or 2 of my favorites out of each catogory and read the orginal play.

The list is below:
Crossed out=I've read it
Bold= plays I have either been in or seen a film/live production of.

On the right of the plays, I have written the role I would love to be in that play.


All's Well that Ends Well
As You Like It
Comedy of Errors
Love's Labour's Lost
Measure for Measure

Merchant of Venice (Portia)
Merry Wives of Windsor
Midsummer Night's Dream (Hermia)
Much Ado About Nothing (Hero)
Taming of the Shrew
Twelfth Night(currently reading)
Two Gentlemen of Verona
Winter's Tale

Julius Caesar (my dream role would be Brutus, but since I'm a gal, I choose..Calphurnia)
King Lear

Othello (currently listening to)
Romeo and Juliet(Juliet)
Timon of Athens

I also want to read all of Shakespeare's plays! Time is a little short now, but maybe over the summer?
