Richard III by Shakespeare

Richard III by Shakespeare

Well, another play. This was actually the first play I had read but somehow managed to miss posting a review. In all honesty, this is very much just a reiteration of what I've said previously. Whilst I liked the story the format makes it difficult. Besides with this play, each character had multiple names which made keeping track of the plot lines very difficult. It depended on who…

King Lear by Shakespeare

The first of many uni book reviews to come! This term, for the most part, they're all plays which are different.

Othello

December 15, 2017

I love Shakespeare but this wasn't my favourite. I still enjoyed it and thought that the characters were incredibly dynamic but Macbeth still has my heart. There's a lot of political intrigue, which isn't unheard of for Shakespeare...nor is a starcrossed romance. Othello is a POC character often referred to with racial slurs. But then praised for his military prowess. With nothing but his charm he woos the…
