really liked it

This is another play I taught for over twenty years. I love the language, arguably some of the most beautiful ever written by Shakespeare. Dissect the story to it's essence and it comes across as "you've got to be kidding!" Wrap it in iambic pentameter and add the metaphors and images and it is gripping. It may take some work to decipher if you aren't used to Shakespeare's poetry, but it is well worth the effort to do so.
