bookshelves: standalone, european-classics

A classic play featuring the typical tragedy storyline with the slight twist that the Duchess is widowed at a young age and must remarry in secret due to her brother's completely insane objections and desire for her to remain single. I found it neither unjoyable nor enjoyable, just a typical tragedy play with a heavy undertone of Catholicism.

Check out my full review.
