This enchanting play successfully dramatizes historic events in an engaging way for the entertainment of a wide range of audiences and theater goers. By entangling intriguing characters and dramatic plot lines, Shakespeare crafts one of his most theatrical political plays to date. At times it's hard to know who to root for as good characters do bad things and bad characters redeem themselves with acts of courage. The play ends with a moral for readers to consider, as England goes to war against other countries, internal strife ultimately threatens to compromise the country from with. At times when we look outward and conflict with others, we ignore that problems within that threaten to destroy us if gone unchecked.
King John is a wonderfully dramatic and hauntingly historic play written by the incomparable and celebrated William Shakespeare. For readers who have enjoyed Shakespeare's other works, this play stands out as another gem to read through and take pleasure in. This play is also interesting for people who want to explore twelfth and thirteenth century English history and for those that are curious about the life and works of William Shakespeare.
