really liked it
bookshelves: 2012, for-university

Honestly, a 3-star play that I gave 4-stars to for sentimental reasons. For one, I'm not really a fan of French neoclassicism. Two, I still feel awful silly giving stars out to plays on a 1-5 scale, or on any scale for that matter, mostly because a.) judging literature is hard to do & also b.) because I have this strong desire to give most of the "classic" plays prior to the 19th century 3 stars or lower. That makes me feel like I've wronged theatre history in some way.
I wasn't made to critically review, obviously.
