Oops! Let's Try Again!
Though you might know one or two things, your overall knowledge of Shakespeare is not what it could be. There is only one remedy: revisit the bard's most stunning works. You won't regret it, for he covers many topics, from love to war, and all in amazing language!
 
Well Done!
You have a very respectable knowledge of the great bard's work. You have obviously spent a good deal of time reading and watching his plays. A bit more devotion and you could become an expert! Shakespeare would be proud to have still influenced you so many years after his death.
 
Fantastic!
We bow down to your superior knowledge. We can't think of anything you don't know about the great Shakespeare. You obviously spend a lot of time reading those wonderful plays. What a fantastic way to spend your free time! Shakespeare would be so happy to know people like you still know him so well hundreds of years after his death. Good for you!
