Shakespeare, and his such an evocative title. A difficult read, offensive comments about women.

One of Shakespeare's more peculiar plays - I'd even go so far as to call it experimental compared to his earlier works. One half is a tragedy about a jealous husband; the second half is a comedy about a young prince and a supposed shepherdess; and the end is pure fantasy. Delightful, though inconsistent. (I can't help but be a little bothered by a shipwreck occurring off the coast of a landlocked country, after all.)
