For me it was Midsummer Night's Dream. I don't even remember quite why, but I was talking about it with my mum and she dug out her Complete Works and I read my way through it.

I studied R&J repeatedly at secondary school (I think 3 times in 4 years!), which left me hating it, until Baz Lurhman's film came along and made me like it again.

Charles's primary school class did a load of work on Shakespeare before Easter, and we ended up having a long conversation about the plays last weekend. This led to me digging out the set of simplified-for-children books I picked up at the charity shop a couple of years ago.
