      40% and 80% - I used to know a lot, but I've forgotten so much.

      This is great! Thanks a lot!!! As you can see from my handle, I'm a Shakespeare nut, too. Mystico is the dream magician in my first novel - 'The Crystal Dream', which is a take off of Will's last work - 'The Tempest'.

      Pretty Hard. I haven't cracked open my Shakespeare anthology in a while now.... perhaps now's the time! Great quizzes :)

      Whoever said when you're in doubt go with your 2nd guess rather than your instinctive first answer was wrong. I only got 20% on the play quiz but would have got 60% if I went with my first reactions. The second quiz on quotes I got 50% which isn't too bad considering I only fully read 2 of his plays.
