Taylor can be surprisingly petty.

I kind of get it though as I'm not a big fan of Romeo & Juliet myself. But then again I tend to dislike how romance is portrayed in a lot of popular media.

And since you seemed interested in Norwegian authors I thought I could say a bit more. I mentioned Peer Gynt which I'd say is one of Henrik Ibsen's most famous plays, I also believe this is in part because Edward Grieg (Norway's most famous composer) composed incidental music for it. Another of Ibsen's famous plays is The Wild Duck. Our teacher made us watch the entire play back in middle school and I'll admit I didn't care too much for it then, but looking back it is a rather interesting play (though do note that an architect Ibsen was not, do not try to make sense of the Ekdal family's appartement).

Henrik Ibsen is one of The Four Great Norwegian authors together with Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson, Jonas Lie, and Alexander Kielland. We were taught about all of them but it's Ibsen I remember best and I feel that he is often held in slightly higher regards than the others. That said Bjørnson did write our National Anthem and he was the first Norwegian author to win the Nobel Prize in Literature.

Two more Norwegian authors has won the prize since, Sigrid Unset and Knut Hamsun. Unset is our most famous female author and her most famous work is her Kristin Lavransdatter trilogy. I haven't read any of her works myself, though I have seen a mediocre movie adaption of the first Kristin Lavransdatter book. Hamsun is probably more infamous than famous, he was a great author, but he also sided with Nazi Germany during the war...

This got a bit long but I hope it's interesting at least.
