    33 Zastrozzi the master of discipline a melodrama by John F WalkerThis was so horrid that I can t believe that Walker could evolve into the playwright that he later became Six characters and only one survives Heck, if I want that I can read Hamlet and get a half decent plot as well It is said to be loosely based on the poem by Shelley The only interesting part to me would be the stage set and perhaps the swordplay The two women in the play whore and virgin are flat on the page and n 33 Zastrozzi the master of discipline a melodrama by John F WalkerThis was so horrid that I can t believe that Walker could evolve into the playwright that he later became Six characters and only one survives Heck, if I want that I can read Hamlet and get a half decent plot as well It is said to be loosely based on the poem by Shelley The only interesting part to me would be the stage set and perhaps the swordplay The two women in the play whore and virgin are flat on the page and never seem to have any real motivation The play is set in 1893 but it seems medieval in its violence and lack of technology Revenge has never been my thing I m so careless that I can t hold on to a grudge Just plain nasty

    I don t read plays often but this one game highly recommended and I really enjoyed it The setting, the sarcasm, the characters and the story were interesting and engaging I might readplays now.
