Obviously these aren't all of Shakespeare's tragedy plays, but since they won't all fit in the poll, I went with the five most well-known.

MacBeth.

King Lear. It's so epic. I've read all the rest; but I liked King Lear the most.

Ahh, I'm so glad someone's picked King Lear! I loved Lear, and I was seriously debating whether to choose Lear or Hamlet when I created the poll.

Though I've read through King Lear, Romeo & Juliet, and Hamlet, I personally connected best with Hamlet, though it's hard to remember why now.

Memorized Hamlet's soliloquies. So amazing. <3

Hmmm, difficult pick between Macbeth, Hamlet, and Romeo and Juliet. However, Macbeth probably trumps as my personal favourite since I've actually read it a couple more times than the other two.

Must admit, despite having majored in English at uni, I didn't get around to reading King Lear or Othello and neither of them have made it on to my bookshelves...

Here's a photo of some badges I collected on my travels some years ago. Got a chance to spend a weekend in London and visited the Globe Theatre. We saw a performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

Very nice! I missed out on my opportunity to visit the Globe when I was in England, and I'm still kicking myself for it >.<

I did, however, get to see David Tennant and Catherine Tate live in London performing in Much Ado About Nothing, which was definitely worth it.

Macbeth is actually the only one of these five I've only read once. I should probably reread it eventually...

Had a difficult time deciding between Hamlet and King Lear. Obviously King Lear isn't being taught as readily in schools. I chose Hamlet.

I really enjoyed Hamlet, but I'm really surprised Romeo & Juliet got so many of the votes. Might be one of the most "popular" of Shakespeare's works, but I found it to be horrible to read.

The Tempest is super excellent, but I didn't include it since it isn't a tragedy.
