The Merry Wives of Windsor - William Shakespeare A lot of things are going on in this play. Falstaff, sure, is no sympathetic character, but the constant play on his size left me a bit uneasy. The 'fat' and the 'ugly' are perhaps now one of the few groups that can be abused remorselessly (oh I forgot, the 'stupid' as well), and I do wonder what is at the heart of people's permissiveness.
I did enjoy it while I was reading it, but I am definitely glad it is over.
