Shaun
A piece that is more likely to incite long bouts of Ciceronian style oratory than any dramatic affect whatsoever, Gorboduc is a play that is more about the politics of power than the physical shifts of that power. If the dialogue were clipped and made more dynamic, the play would be a fine one. As it stands, it serves more as an instructional model for monarchs than as a play for the people.

Fans of declamatory oratory will like this play. Fans of Queen Mary I will like this play.
Fans of Elizabeth I and/or dialogue will not like this play.
It's good to see where Elizabethan drama started; it's hard to read it after you've dipped into the 1580s.

The darkest play I studies this semester..
Like how one decision can create all this chaos?
