    " Not my favorite of Shakepeare. It felt very dishoveled and there wasn't much progression on the characters. New characters were jumping in and out. "

    " I read this is a Shakespeare seminar called Tragedies and Romances and I really enjoyed it! I forgot that I read it until I was flipping through my anthology looking for The Tempest and found it. I read through my old annotations and literally laughed out loud! "

    " Pure dramatic as fuck. What *doesn't* happen in this play? I like Marina, who's essentially sex trafficked but remains a virgin by saying to every guy who comes to buy her, "What you doing in a brothel? Shame on you! I'll tell your mother! Scat! Get yersel tae chapel an' aw!" Or something to that effect. Good oan ye girl. "

    " The mystery of authorship intrigues me about this play. It does not contain the beautiful ease of Shakespeare; it is awkward, clunky. But there are some flashes of incredible language. Worth exploring...because its rarely done on stage. "
