Dang, I should have had more sense than to check out two of the Bard's "problem plays" back to back. (I listened to this right on the heels of All's Well That Ends Well, which definitely earns that monicker about equally with this one.) Though among the more perplexing and least satisfying of his efforts considered overall, it's still Shakespeare, which means more than a few gems to latch on to. Ulysses' beguiling lecture to Achilles regarding the fleeting nature of fortune and fame in Act III, Scene 3 is particularly memorable.
