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.

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.

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!
