  3. Oops, not my genre of expertise. I read I think two of his books in high school and that was many moons ago 🙂
    Wish my son was here…he knows more about him than I do. Thanks again for making this quiz, but I have no answers to give you here today.

    I think I have them all right. I love my Shakespeare, although I’ll admit to not having read all of them. I know a lot of the characters from seeing the film adaptations, or the plays themselves. 🙂

      • Wow! And you know…I didn’t even notice Julius Caesar wasn’t listed. I just know the history, and that play, so well. 🙂 Thanks!

        I received The Serpent of Venice yesterday. Thanks again!
