  • Trolling is a form of art.

    No new arguments may be introduced."When we are born, we cry that we are comeTo this great stage of fools"King Lear; Act IV, Scene IV Trollers be trolling.Also, I question the definitions of "trolling" and "art."Trolling is deliberately hiding under bridges to scare passers-by and not allow them passage over the bridge unless they answer your three riddles.Also, art is a man's name, short for Arthur or Artholomew, or even Art.I look forward to Pro's opening argument.:D Both sides have agreed to forgo this debate.

Opinions

  • Is Shakespeare the greatest writer of all time?

    Prior to reading King Lear, and having only read the bard in school, I was a skeptic. King Lear, in particular, is rich is political condemnation, tragedy, explanation and realisation of human need, and a real entry into the realms of suffering and sadness. He will always be considered one of the greatest and he is the greatest of his time You would have to make a strong case for any other writer Hamlet, King Lear and Othello reverberate.

  • Who is the greatest and the most versatile writer ever?

    Also, I don't like Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Midsummer's Nights Dream, and all the other fantastic works of Shakespeare. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men.

  • Worst book that you have read, so far

    I think Hamlet is great, but King Lear is better. I think Hamlet is great, but King Lear is better. The first (and there are many) worst book that I read was <strong>Frankenstein</strong> by Mary Shelley, a novel that I read a few years ago.
