Question
Dear Swami

It is difficult to answer but still do you feel Romeo and Juliet is the best novel by Shakespeare among all his plays?.

Thanks & regards
Prashant s akerkar

Answer
Dear Prashant,

What is best for one person may not be so for the other. That is the essence of aesthetics that it varies with perception and perceiver. So, your question cannot be answered. To answer it would be to propose an universal concept of art, and that would be ridiculous.

With best wishes,
Swami Narasimhananda
