To learn the Shakespearean plays

I decided that I'm going to learn the Shakespearean plays.

We have an enormous quantity of good productions, relative to anybody ever. This may be quibbled vis-a-vis his contemporaries, but it's a quibble.

We have more productions more available than at any time in history.

Some call Shakespeare the greatest writer — and I can hear it, partly. But it's 400 years old. I'd have to learn the language.

So I decided that that's what I'm going to do.
