Is Shakespere overrated?

Overrated compared to what? Overrated in what regard? Overrated in what area of life?

This is a pretty impressive stable of plays and realistically just half of his most famous plays (he has around 20 plays altogether):

* Much Ado about Nothing
* Loves Labors Lost
* Midsummers Nights Dream
* Romeo & Juliet
* Julius Caesar

He’s prolific, funny, rhetorical, an entertainer, and understands the human condition like few others (both emotionally and in terms of the wisdom in his oft quoted aphorisms). Very few can match his quality and quantity. And very few can match his inter-generational endurance.
