No, as I wrote elsewhere, the Church only took direct aim at books that denied tenets of the faith or were encouraging atheism, it never went after each book that had scurrilous content or even blasphemy.
The Church never said much if anything about the constant stream of paganized art from the Renaissance, or the operas with constant erotic innuendo.
Shakespeare's plays are Satanic. People may think I'm crazy to say that, I don't care. Romeo and Juliet is clearly inspired by the devil; it glamorizes that kind of mindset that leads to the "lover's leap" attitude, it pushes destructive romantic attitudes and then tacks on a little moral at the end that no one remembers -- a classic trick of the devil. Look at the effect of the play; see it with the eyes of those who are deceived by it, not with Catholic wishful thinking, and you will see it has had extraordinarily negative effects. All kids who fall in "love" and rebel against their parents and have sex are falling for that mythos; and that holds true even if Romeo and Juliet were married, because no one remembers that. That is because the emphasis is placed on the idea of rebellion.
I often compare it to gangster films like GoodFellas that spend two hours glamorizing gangsters, and then tack on a "Crime doesn't pay" moral. It's the oldest trick in the book. Yet all the kids in the ghetto want to be Scarface or a gangster from GoodFellas. Think it's an accident?
Hamlet is one of the most evil works of literature to exist, but it would take me too long to explain why. However, the perversions of Catholic imagery and morality should leap at you. What Catholics need to know is that it's full of sexual puns and innuendo, as are so many of Shake's plays. It's been a while since I read them to see if there is any blasphemy, but it wouldn't surprise me. Yeah, "'s'blood," means "God's blood."
These plays are also Kabbalistic and Rosicrucian and full of bizarre symbolic imagery. I know what it means, but I would sound crazy if I talked about it here. Suffice it to say, I am absolutely positive his work was inspired by the devil, just like modern films. In fact Shakespeare kicked off, in a way, all modern art, all modern theater and film, and almost all of it is evil. There is little difference between the works of Tim Burton and those of Shakespeare, they're both channeling the same thing.
No joke -- the Tim Burton Batman films are just a rewrite of Hamlet. They are both about someone who is half-good, half-bad. Someone who has a Catholic morality and is aggrieved at the world, but who takes the law into his own hands, and in effect sets himself up as the Church, becoming a vigilante instead. Batman IS Hamlet. These works of theater are a sort of incantation to produce an anti-Christ figure. Sounds far-fetched, but it's true.
For those who deny that Shakespeare's plays are Satanic, all I have to do is say two words: The Tempest. Can anyone deny that there is a stream of utterly demonic imagery that flows from this play? Prospero is even supposed to BE the devil; it's a total glorification of demonic nihilism, and it is also a demonic prophecy of our current age, which is the Wasteland seen in so many works of literature... The Apostasy is the Wasteland, the Restoration of the Church is the Holy Grail. All this stuff is channeled.
