There is a depth of thought and feeling, and a magnificient manipulation of the English language by Shakespeare that transcends time. The renowned critic, Harold Bloom declares that "...no one, before or since Shakespeare, made so many separate selves." Thamas Carlyle declared that Shakespeare had "superiority of Intellect." Further, Bloom asserts,
Shakespeare will abide, even if he were to be expelled by the academics, in itself most unlikely. He extensively informs the language we speak, his principal characters have become our mythology, and he, rather than his involuntary follower Freud, is our psychologist.
There is a universal appeal to Shakespeare's diverse and yet so huamn characters, who teach so many about human nature, it virtues and its foibles.
