ALL OF SHAKESPEARE’S PLAYS ARE GOOD. Pericles is thought by most critics to be one of Shakespeare’s weakest plays. Yet it delighted a modern audience. I posted here after we saw the three Henry VI plays, which are also considered to be some of Shakespeare’s weakest plays. A number of critics dislike these plays so much that they question whether Shakespeare wrote them. We were thrilled by them. I wrote in my post that: “Watching the Henry VI plays, I was persuaded by the vividness of each scene that I was watching Shakespeare.”
One thing I found out from seeing all the plays was that every one of Shakespeare’s plays was really good.
