William Shakespeare – Troilus and Cressida | Review

Title: Troilus and Cressida

Author: William Shakespeare

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 130

Rating: 4/5

I didn’t know much about Troilus and Cressida going into reading this, and so that made for a pretty interesting read. It turns out that I was already loosely familiar with the plotline from other takes on mythology, but I wasn’t really reading it for the plot anyway.

As usual, I was mostly gripped by Shakespeare’s masterful control of the English language, and it was an inspiring little read that left me wanting to read more. Fortunately, I have a bunch of other stunning Folio society editions of Shakespeare just waiting in the wings, so perhaps I’ll get to them sooner rather than later. Make of that what you will.

William Shakespeare – Pericles, Prince of Tyre | Review

Title: Pericles, Prince of Tyre

Author: William Shakespeare

Type: Fiction

Page Count: 94

Rating: 3.75/5

This was an okay little read I guess, and it was helped by the fact that I read it in one of the beautiful Folio Society editions that I’ve been reading of late. Still, coming off the back of Titus Andronicus and The Merry Wives of Windsor, both of which I really enjoyed, it was a little bit of a disappointment. But what can I say? They can’t all be hits, right?
