it was ok
bookshelves: classics

I was really looking forward to this since I enjoyed Alls Well That Ends Well, and that play was a warm-up to this one. Perhaps I just enjoyed the former because it was light and had an interesting female character. Either way, this play's issues of morality and the Biblical parable were interesting in concept but not in the context of the story.

If you're not a die-hard Shakespeare fan, this might be worth picking up so that you can read the analysis and context, which are more interesting than the actual play.

However, one quote I really liked is “Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”
