“Venus and Adonis” By William Shakespeare Review

It tells the story of Venus, the goddess of Love; of her unrequited love; and of her attempted seduction of Adonis, an extremely handsome young man, who would rather go hunting. The poem is pastoral, and at times erotic, comic and tragic. It contains discourses on the nature of love, and observations of nature.

This was an okay poems / plays written by William Shakespeare. In my opinion it was one of the best plays written by William Shakespeare. But it goes back to the fact that I personally don’t like plays at all. 

The plot here in this play talks is a generic William Shakespeare with love, battle / war, tragedy etc. You know the deal if you read any of William Shakespeare plays before. However the way it was pretend to us made is fun and okay. And it was interesting and enjoyable to read it.

In my opinion this one was too melodramatic for me but it had many good moments. 

The writing style here was very good it really showed me how good of a writer William Shakespeare was and why so many people love his work.

This one is sort of a mix between play and a a collection of various poems. Which makes it a little bit hard to review. 

For me personally it felt like there was something missing but it might be just me not liking plays / poems.

I Give Play 3 / 5
