The Rape of Lucrece

The Rape of Lucrece by William Shakespeare
My rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

The second long poem I’ve read in my read-through of Shakespeare and unfortunately I don’t have a good opinion. It was not the subject manner nor the quality of the rhyme, but the various shifts of point-of-view are confusing and the long deviations, I call them this because I couldn’t figure out the relevance to the narrative, are confusing. However, in the end it could just be me.
