It’s a little too soon to say. Er. Okay, so it’s so-very-too-soon to say, considering I haven’t read any of the play yet.
But I sniff potential. Cymbaline might be my all-time favorite Shakespeare play yet, judging by the article “Misperception in Cymabline” by Cynthia Lewis.
The article ends thusly:
No play appears sloppier at first, and yet few transform before our eyes into such an elegant example of elegant design. Cymbeline, by blinding us at every turn, fools us into seeing anew.
Funny, but before the beginning of this semester, I hadn’t even heard of it.
