How I did it: I started by reading sonnets and got that part of the goal out of the way. But then a lot of time passed before I started on the plays. I thought they'd be enjoyable if not enlightening, but I didn't like them at all. I read two tragedies and two comedies and they were all very soap-opera-ish, with poor characterizations and far-fetched, unbelievable plots.
The only thing I can say is that reading the plays in fairly quick succession did make the language easier to understand, and if I had to do it over again, I'd go straight from the sonnets to the plays without a seven or so month break between them. But I doubt very much I will ever voluntarily pick up some Shakespeare again, and since I don't plan on taking a class that would assign it, it looks like, 'So long, Will' for me.
