Twitter brought us an interesting discussion today over what the most "under rated" Shakespeare play is. For those that weren't following, here's the summary:
bardfilm takes a stand: "Hamlet. Yup, it's SO good that it's STILL underrated."
For the curious, my own answer to the question was Richard II. Although I did offer the caveat that I think that every play that doesn't get all the attention should get more attention :). Something about R2 makes me think that people see it first as a history, second as a sort of "lesser Richard" (what with R3 being such a big deal), when in actuality it's this poetic masterpiece that you only get exposed to in school if you're very very lucky.
