I love everything weird and colorful in this world and I try to live a life that will make the world a little better once I'm gone.

Two Quizzes on Shakespeare Quotes

How well do you know your Shakespeare?  The amount of famous quotes from Shakespeare's plays is extraordinary.  How well do you remember who said what and in which play?

Take these two quizzes to find out.  The first asks simply in what play did a particular quote appear.  The second asks who spoke the particular quotes.

Warning: It's not easy!

Which works do you prefer?

Which genres of Shakespeare's work do you prefer?

See results

Was it easy, hard, impossible? How well do you know your Shakespeare?

Guestbook - How did you do?

      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'.

      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.
