"'The Winter's Tale' .my favourite play."

I believe there is a support group, "Shakespeare Anonymous," for this
syndrome.

I am amazed!!! This debate is going in the opposite direction to the
Shakespearean tradition. It's preposterous to read people writing GOOD
or BAD, when we are discussing representations. In such cases, these
judgemental words and attitudes only agree or disagree with the other
PERSONAL representations that we've managed to make of the plays in our
minds. They're versions, hard-thought and well acted, indeed, to the
best of the abilities of actors, directors, producers whose aspiration
was to show their vision of the plays they took in hand.

As I'm very fond of saying in my introductory lecture in my Shakespeare
course, Shakespeare has been surviving bad teachers, bad students, bad
actors and directors very successfully for centuries. Ours will be
another attempt to approach him. The text's the thing...

Please, avoid judgemtal goods and bads, or should I say, as a poor
replica: "Good me no goods, nor bad me no bads...."
