I need to do an illustration project for art uni due in 2 weeks. The tutor told me to do it on shakespeare because he really liked a shakespeare comic i did. Now the only plays i saw in full are romeo and juliet, merry wives of windsor and midsummer nights dream and king lear. I want to read Titus ANdronicus and about 5 more, but I dont know if I will have so much time to read all these. Do they take about an hour to read each? Yes i know i can cliff notes but it would be better to read them in full.

Couldn't tell you. Some people can get into them while other people feel like they are looking at a foriegn language. They really aren't that long and if you indeed are capable of understanding them I wouldn't worry too much about the time.

Maybe you should glance through the cliff notes and find the ones you are really interested in and then read those.

Well, it depends on how fast of a reader you are. If you set a goal then yes, you'll be able to finish it I'm sure.

READ OTHELLO.

In all seriousness, it's a wonderful play. It isn't too long a read, an hour or two at most, and the story is great. I'd absolutely recommend it.
