    1. My least favorite Restoration drama thus far. The language is strikingly beautiful at times, but overly dramatic & heightened. There are several scenes where characters do a very soap-opera like exchange of not daring to speak! but having another character drag it out of him/her. Very melodramatic at times, and there are few characters I really sympathize with.


    2. Dear God this was hard work. If I hadn't had to read it to the end I would have gouged my eyes out with a teaspoon.


    3. OK. So two nobleman (Jaffier and Pierre) conspire to massacre the Venetian senate to avenge themselves on senatorial corruption. Both men are motivated by a desire to punish the selfish senators who have mistreated them and their respective beloveds (Belvidera and Aquilina). Jaffier doesn't know about the conspiracy (already long brewing) until Pierre tells him in Act I. The lead conspirator, Renault, suspects Jaffier of dishonesty when J. unexpectedly shows up to an undercover meeting and decla [...]


    4. Hugo von Hoffmansthal wrote a nice dialogue between Balzac and Baron Joseph Hammer-Purgstall in which Balzac claims that his own creation, the outrageous Vautrin, believes Otway's play is the finest of all theatrical creations. So based on the recommendation of a literary character, twice removed, I sought out the play and was delighted with it. There are indeed some similarities between Otway's Pierre and Balzac's Vautrin.All in all, one of the best post-Shakespeare English tragedies I've read. [...]


    5. Read for Restoration Literature. Otway pushed back against the gender stereotypes and fooled society into agreeing without fully understanding.



    6. Belvidera, Jaffeir, and Pierre make a compelling triad, and there's something fascinating (if depressing!) about a tragedy without a clear moral lesson.




    7. I actually read this one as an etext via google books - a powerful tragedy which is quite reminiscent of Shakespeare. I seem to find older tragedies easier to take in than older comedies.
