“Pericles” By William Shakespeare Review

Prince of Tyre leaves home to escape death only to win a jousting contest and marry a princess. Once he can return home, his family sails with him, but a storm separates them, so Pericles returns alone. Years later, Pericles finds his daughter and reunites with the wife he had thought was dead.

This one was a pretty okay play written by William Shakespeare. This one surprised me in a good way because I didn’t like the majority of plays written by William Shakespeare but this one was pretty good for me.

This play have a huge Charles Dickens Vibe to it which I personally come to enjoy and to be honest I ended giving this play some extra point for the Charles Dickens Vibe which it had.

The plot in this play was pretty good but still it had the generic William Shakespeare plot about love, battle and the huge tragedy at the end which of course is death. But to be honest I didn’t mind in this one because of the way it was presented to us which made the plot a little bit more fun and a little bit more interesting. 

The writing style here was good here. Of course it had the typical William Shakespeare writing with the fun poetic language in it.

I Give Play 3 / 5
