Listener Opinions

    " This wants a second reading. It is loaded with double entendre, even for Shakespeare. You need to be on your toes here. I'll revisit the rating once I read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 2/9/2014

    " Not Shakespeare's best effort "

    " Boy, howdy, what a weird play. If I lived in this Navarre I would either go mad or be forced to wear earmuffs - the constant barrage of word games, it's the most contagious and widespread case of verbal diarrhea I've ever witnessed! I sympathize with Costard, who has a few good sallies of his own but mostly just stands around catching flies as he marvels at the acrobatic rhetoric. We see the dangers of too much cunning in thought and too little, the downfall of the lords who live by all art, no matter. "

    " It's too bad we don't have the companion piece to this one. All that has survived is the title (Love's Labour's Found). The story doesn't really grab you, and the ending's not very satisfying, but there's a lot of fun in it, anyway. "

    " Next year's Shakespeare Series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/19/2014

    " LOVED this play. I was completely unfamiliar with it before reading it, and therefore was able to approach it with unbiased eyes. It rivals Shakespeare's more well-known classics in his use and play on language, and, though on surface it is a comedy, it presents an underlying message of sobering seriousness. Altogether a delicious read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 1/18/2014

    " Shakespeare's themes come to fruition. Absolutely amazing layers of plot, dialogue, and motive. Clearly not a famous one of Billy's, in my opinion, probably simply because it didn't inspire as many cliches as Hamlet or Macbeth. Deserves more recognition and thought than it gets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 1/16/2014

    " I dreaded watching and reading this play for class. Much to my surprise it was witty and charming. Funny thing about low expectations; when they are exceeded the result is giddy delight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Rowe | 12/24/2013

    " Hard to get into. In fact, I don't think I ever really got into it. Some funny parts, but I never laughed out loud. "

    " Witty Shakespeare at his finest!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pippi Bluestocking | 11/16/2013

    " What can I say? Shakespeare makes love with the English language in this one. One can easily spot the ingredient that ornamented William's genes and can be found in Austen's and Wilde's as well. Fashionably witty, surprisingly erudite, gently amusing. Truly stunning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tessa | 9/30/2013

    " I've liked all the plays we've studied in my Shakespeare class so far, but this one just couldn't catch my attention. I'm not sure why; it relies on word play like Much Ado About Nothing, but I couldn't get into it. Maybe further class discussion will increase my opinion of it. "

    " Got to love the comedies! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Denison | 7/9/2013

    " Fairly clever, but hardly up to Shakespeare's comedic standards. Not to mention totally plotless. One of my least favorite of Shakespeare's plays, but that makes it still pretty good overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nerd Goddess | 7/6/2013

    " Fun! Lots of puns and insight into characters and how different people react to different situations. I've enjoyed studying it for class. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/9/2013

    " Definitely not my favorite of Shakespeare. I read it because some kids were in a play of it and I thought it was a quick read but more dull than his other plays. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 June | 3/15/2013

    " I really wanted to like this one because with regard to themes and plot, this has the most potential of all Shakespeare's comedies. Unfortunately, the writing is largely unsuccessful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maddie Ricchiuto | 1/23/2013

    " Somewhat pedantic and lacking in grace. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Ringman | 1/17/2013

    " Great lesser known play...BEST SPEECH BY LORD BYRON EVER! "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
