The Poetics

by Aristotle

An interesting piece of literary criticism surpassed, Aristotelian doctrines invariably restrict the boundaries of art and the expansion of character, poetry and action leading to boredom and the lack of variety suffering parts of Moliere and Racine. Interesting but outdated and archaic. Thanks to Shakespeare, whose genius Aristotle could not imagine.

The Arabian Nights

by Andrew Lang

A collection of texts kind for its famous stories, aesthetically is not important and not canonically as Shakespeare. Their stories far from reflecting the human condition are works that deal with the fate of the implausibility of his characters.

by Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy

You can not blame Tolstoy for his misunderstanding before the greatest writer of all time, Tolstoy was a moralist who tried to judge Shakespeare by their own criteria, today the world is more like Lear than any work of Tolstoy. Just a pamphlet reflecting the prejudices of his time, as Voltaire, Bernard Shaw and Wintgenstein. What are forgotten, but the Bard continues.

by William Shakespeare

The Greatest Natural System of Philosophy ever created. Shakespeare excelled in originality the Plato's thesis of Platonic love. More than that, he epitomizes the dilemma of the beauty over time and the timelessness of their own work to create a speaker of your own personality in his art.
