It always bugs me when people describe Shakespeare’s plays as “timeless”. Yes, the plots in their broad strokes are easily adapted to any era, but the plays as written are literally the opposite of timeless. Dude was obsessed with pop culture, and practically every other line is either an obscure metatextual in-joke or a reference to something that Only 1590s Kids Will Get – that’s why the annotations are longer than the actual text!
