QUIZ: Who Is Your Shakespearean Alter-Ego?

It’s inevitable. You *WILL* study Shakespeare at some point in your education. If you’re already past that point, hopefully you had a lovely teacher who made it awesome for you and helped you unlock that “I Understood a Shakespeare Joke” achievement (thanks, Teach!). If not, get excited: Shakespeare is the biznack, and anyone who tells you otherwise obviously hasn’t found this site yet.

Whether you’re feeling heartbroken, or conflicted, or upset that your uncle just murdered your father, Shakespeare gets how you feel. But which Shakespearean creation reflects the shiny gemstone at the center of your being? Are you the kind of person who loves a bit of drama and/or shouting at the stars, or someone who likes to strut around in tights reeling off smart ripostes?

Into the breach!
