my typing is so slow, so I type it over and over until it's fast enough--and I forget one or 2 or even 3 every time. Not the same ones either. Something about the human brain...it does not want to make quite this much room in our immediate memory. Leaves them in deeper long term memory until forced forward.

What about Love's Labor Won? Or are you counting only the ones that can be read today?
reply

Jul 31, 2013

Well, first we'd have to be sure that Love's Labour Won is indeed another play, and not an alternate name to one of the plays already listed. I think the prevailing theory right now is that it could be Much Ado about Nothing.

Henry IV Part 1 and Part 2 are separate plays - as are Henry VI Parts 1, 2 and 3.

That was really the problem with Shakespeare, wasn't it? So many sequels, remakes and reboots. How about some originality?

Really, Two Noble Kinsman should be on this list. It is now an accepted part of the Shakespeare canon. A collaboration with Fletcher. As was Henry VIII

Good quiz, but what about the fact that some of the plays are in various parts? Henry IV part 1 and Henry IV part 2 are completely different plays. Ditto with Henry VI parts 1, 2, and 3.

I love this but I could never type this fast. It's a shame that several quizzes here end way before we can get all our knowledge out because we are poor typists--they become essentially a secretarial quiz instead of a knowledge one. If these quizzes were timed but we clicked when done, it would be a race, but not one that ends before we all are done. The braggarts could brag, and the rest would not have to opt out to "untimed" each time we have 30% to go and 12 seconds!

If you had asked me the 'Shakespeare Plays' at home, sat in my armchair, I could have given you most of them, but start the timer and all of a sudden my brain empties and after 14 of 34 I'm staring at the clock watching it unwind...... dear me.
