What is it?

(also, do Americans cover the original Greek tragedies in high school like Oedipus Rex and Medea? In Canada we stuck with Shakespeare only (at least where I went to school))

I did Oedipus Rex in HS. We also did Death of a Salesman if I recall correctly and of course Shakespeare. I repeated a lot of that stuff later in college.

Richard III is one of my faves.

did you cover that in school?
i think that's pretty standard, an English teacher will have to teach 1) Shakespeare's stuff 2) Greek heros and tragedy 3) some relatively modern poets from england...

heck, I think I can teach english too!!11!!1 ;p
