Subject:        Banned Shakespeare

This spring my department is hosting a Language Arts Day for area high
school students -- we invite schools to bring their students to campus
to participate in a variety of contests related to language and
literature, and hope to get them interested in being English majors and
doing it at NSU. One of our contests is a quiz bowl that we run much
like team Jeopardy. All of the questions center, of course, on literary
or grammatical trivia.

Since our theme this year is banned books we wanted to have a bunch of
quiz bowl questions about books often banned from high school English
classes. So, my question to the list is, what Shakespeare works, besides
Romeo and Juliet, have been banned and why?

Feel free to respond off list.
Thanks,
Lysbeth Em Benkert
