    Most of the business with the princess is ridiculous, she falls in love with this random man for no foreseeable reason, at one point she tells him to kill her and gets pissed at someone else for trying to stop him from killing her, then after she's gone through this horrible run of pretty much everyone wanting to kill her for having premarital sex that she didn't have-- she cheerily gives murderous lover boy permission to sleep around??? What the what? Anyway Bellario has some beautiful declarations of love, and there's a trip to cannibal town that gives us such gems as someone wanting to build a university and then put this person's nose on the gate, it really gives you nostalgia for the days when cannibals had values.

    Worth checking out if you're interested in Jacobean tragicomedy. This play of jealousy and deception has some great characters. I especially liked Megara and Galatea as to women with completely opposite sensibilities. While the plot may become ridiculous at point, it is rarely boring. It should be noted that the new Arden Edition is excellent. I'm used to having to read the works of Shakespeare's contemporaries that are poorly edited and devoid of footnotes. I really feel as though I got a much better understanding of this work because of how well it was packaged. If you're going to read this, it's worth shelling out the extra cash for the Arden edition.

    I liked the poetry but the plot of this play is rather weird - I suppose it's a tragicomedy. The ending leaves one character forlorn while most of the others are happy.

    if you want to read a renaissance play about gender mayhem, this one's for you.

    There are some legitimately beautiful lines in this play, but the plotting is scattered to the four winds and the reveal at the end was a groaner.
