    " I forgot how much I love Shakespeare! "

    " The ending is disappointing especially when every conflicts were constructed well, motiviating me to see how those problems would be solved. However, to my disappointment, they were solved rushly. How come Valentine immidately forgave Proteus and gived up his lover, Silvia to, merely due to the apology of ProTeua? "

    " Some fine writing and comic relief via Launce and his verbal word play, though the work lags in parts. The plot itself merits it four stars rather than three. One feels a deep sympathy for Valentine and a similar repulsion toward the treacherous Proteus, who betrays both his good friend and his love (Julia), though his love for Silvia (the object of Valentine's affection) is unrequited. Love and betrayal were both common themes that would run through Shakespeare's later works (this is considered his first by many critics and scholars). "

    " Apparently this is one the Bard's earliest works and maybe he had not yet hit his rhythm. The language is lyric and well placed, but there is just nothing going on. I gave it a chance, and tried really hard to like it, but just could not get into this one. "

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.
