10. William Shakespeare

Don’t be afraid of him! Read Macbeth and Much Ado about Nothing and Midsummer Night’s Dream.

More importantly, watch the plays! They were meant to be seen! Joss Whedon’s Much Ado about Nothing is beautiful. Kenneth Branagh’s version of the same play is gold. What 10 Things I Hate About You and She’s the Man based off of Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night respectively. Go! Do! Shakespeare isn’t meant to be stuffy and only for the scholars. it’s super relatable and oftentimes down right funny. Be daring! I believe in you!
