This book isn't on the Barnes & Noble Classics list I've been reading from. This was one of the classics that came with the eReader my hubby downloaded onto my phone. I had never heard of it before and, upon reading the brief summary, I wanted to read it. Now that I have, I can say there's a reason it isn't a classic you heard a lot of.
I'd love to tell you the plot of the play, but I'm not quite sure what is was. All I can tell you is that it was a confusing read. I know that a father wanted to arrange a marriage for his daughter, but neither the bride or the groom were interested. I got lost in the numerous characters and the conversations they had that, truthfully, had me forgetting what was supposed to be going on.
I was really looking forward to reading the play and was disappointed it didn't turn out well. Who knows, maybe I'll give it another try eventually. As for now, I have cut my losses and hope to have better luck with the next classic.
