4.0 out of 5 stars Charming short dramas 30 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a short collection of 2 dramas written by Mary Shelley along classical lines. The first (which I enjoyed the most) relates the history of Proserpine and how after disregarding the advice of her mother, and separating from her attendants, she is kidnapped by the King of Hell. It is only a very short play (with the inclusion of some of PB Shelley's poetry) but it is very charming and enjoyable to read. I particularly liked the emphasis on the relationship between Ceres (mother) and Proserpine. Their relationship could definitely be described as adoring and given that Shelley had lost her own daughter just a very short while before the writing of this drama, I think that this portrayal of the relationship could be read as autobiographically significant to the author. The second drama is "Midas" and is entertaining enough, but I didn't enjoy it as much as Proserpine. Free on Kindle, there's not much not to like about this short collection.
