Were the World Mine

Shakespeare has been a huge influence on our lives; the fact that Shakespeare passes spell check shows just how important the man is on our language. However, another impact he has is the creation of the iconic love stories.

No, not the original love story, I know better than to say that Romeo and Juliet was the originator, but he had some of the more memorable elements. Romeo and Juliet's them against the world, Taming of the Shrews them against themselves, and perhaps my favourite, A Midsummer Night's Dream, a tale where anything can happen in a display of enchantedness, even if it was just a dream.
