    You know, Toslstoy actually wrote a criticism of Shakespeare, saying that he had read several of his Plays and described it in disgust as, lies. Despite my admiration for the man, I must disagree. Hamlet and Macbeth in particular were unbelievably beautiful.

    Ode to Shakespeare! ! !

    O Shakespeare!
    O Painter of the heart of Man!
    The mysteries of Nature got revealed on your soul;
    In vastness,
    Your spirit is vaster n deeper than the oceans;
    In insight,
    Your glance is higher than the stars;
    The spell by which you conquer hearts
    Is inimitable
    Even by scholars of wit and art …
    The meanings of your phrases are universally alive
    By the magic of your pen.
    Elixir drips and trickles from the flow of your ink.
    Every play of yours is enacted in every man's life.
    Every verse of yours is an exegesis of nature.
    Secrets get exposed by the style of your hand.
    Pains and joys of every man
    Voice out by your tongue.
    Nature is your modest bride,
    Beauty of your phrases do embellish her.
    You are a weaver of intense images.
    Meanings of your chants
    Are neither constrained to space nor limited to time.
    Sometimes you are out beyond the wit of sages
    So universal are your Man's life's stages.
    O Poet of the World!
    Alive as you are
    Will always stay alive;
    The light of your fame will never die out…

    Poets are greater than scientists. Among them, you are such one who creates wonder to be puzzled for ever.

    Why is he called an artist of all time?
    You may apparently find it in his creations... They are of rare qualities. I love his sonnets, and all bear tremendous flow, rhythm, all of a great composition! Be IMMORTAL!

Best Poem of William Shakespeare

All The World's A Stage

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first, the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then the whining schoolboy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden and quick in ...

Read the full of All The World's A Stage

Sonnet Li

Thus can my love excuse the slow offence
Of my dull bearer when from thee I speed:
From where thou art why should I haste me thence?
Till I return, of posting is no need.
O, what excuse will my poor beast then find,
When swift extremity can seem but slow?
Then should I spur, though mounted on the wind;
In winged speed no motion shall I know:
Then can no horse with my desire keep pace;

[Hata Bildir]
