The problem with Shakespeare is that it's archaic language. If you get
into it, you will probably love it. On the other hand, if kids can't
get into the language, it's a lost cause. He wrote what he wrote.
I have found that there are people who can't get into the hardboiled
language, for example. It pains me to say so, but some people are
repelled by it, or it doesn't "sound" in their heads. We fans think
the straighforward, cut-to-the-chase way of telling is optimal (in
some sense) but you should hear what non-fans say about it...
