“The Merry Wives of Windsor” By William Shakespeare Review

Falstaff decides to fix his financial woe by seducing the wives of two wealthy merchants. The wives find he sent them identical letters and take revenge by playing tricks on Falstaff when he comes calling.

This play wasn’t super bad but it still was bad for me at least. It supposed to be a comedy play which for me personally was a tragedy play because it tired way too hard to be funny.

The plot here was for sure unique but still it wasn’t something I normally tend to like or read for that part. I don’t know really what to say about the plot because I am split in two here. Because one part of me likes it and the second part of me doesn’t like it. 

This play is supposed to me a play full of puns, jokes, one liners and situational comedy which for me turned out to be a tragedy as I’ve said before because all of the attempts on jokes weren’t just funny. It might be something with the ageing to do and that the sense of humour changing with time. 

The characters here were meh. There were 1 character which I somehow liked but the rest of them were just there. I just didn’t care about the characters and I didn’t bother remembering their names. 

I Give Play 2 / 5
