All that comes to mind for me is Romeo and Juliet. I honestly don't get how writing that would be worth anyone's time. It was more of a comedy than a tragedy to me too. XD
quote: I read it from a text book, and while It was sad as I read it, it got funny once I started really thinking about it.
Oh my gosh, I love Romeo and Juliet! I don't care what the teachers say, it's one of the most hilarious plays I've ever seen. (And writing papers on how funny Romeo and Juliet is isn't a good idea, btw. It'll get you sent to the counselor's office, along with the story you wrote about an undiagnosed paranoid schizophrenic being picked on in school.)
I found Edgar Allen Poe's works to be just plain silly, but I suppose to some guy living a couple hundred years ago it would be pretty scary.
At the end of The Tell Tale Heart, I could almost imagine the police holding a tape recorder behind their backs, and one saying to the other "Told you it would work."
