Provided Shakespeare WAS the actual writer of the Plays, no, I don't think he's overrated.
What a huge canon of fabulous works, in every way, has been left to us!
His works run the gamut of human emotions, & then some!
Never found it difficult to study, as I loved the set plays at School.
Have continued reading them, & more, especially seeing the Plays acted on stage, by our own fantastic Bell Shakespeare Company!
Do NOT enjoy 'modern' interpretations whatsoever! They're just SO wrong in every which-way!
