Subject:        Shakespeare and Teenagers

It seems I have found some scientific support for my contention that
young people, which includes teenagers, should not be forced to study
and comment upon the great plays of Shakespeare.  According to recent
research teenagers in particular think differently from adults - and in
some respects have moral differences.  All this is due to the violent
changes in growing from a child to an adult.  Please take a look at the
link below for an article that appeared in the Daily Telegraph this
year.  I now think that teenagers are rather frightening creatures.  Was
I really one?
