This is for my dissertation and I would like to hear other peoples opinions. It would really help me a lot. I don't want to put forward an opening argument, It is purely for quotes and opinions. Thanks :)

Shakespeare's works are notable for containing devious treasons and tortuitous romantic affairs. In neither of those do I see anything connected with politics. Aside from Richard III and Macbeth (which is mostly based on the supernatural, not as much politics) there is a strong indication towards human emotions and desires. So no, I would say that he wasn't a political writer, rather an emotional one.

My opponent has conceded. Therefore I win by default. Without a proper argument I have nothing to refute, therefore making anything I say in future arguments pointless.
