Review: Mandragola

User Review  - Nikki - Goodreads

Who would have thought Machiavelli wrote comedies? While it is true this play of his lacks a complex plotline, it is nonetheless fairly enjoyable. Machiavelli's wit and voice come out, even five hundred years after he wrote his play. Read full review

Review: Mandragola

User Review  - Air - Goodreads

This play is really funny, if you over look the usual sexism of the time. It is truly different than anything else I have ever read from this time. It isn't over religious, isn't hard to read or hard to follow. It is a quick read and I highly suggest it for anyone studying Theatre. Read full review

About the author (1957)

Political philosopher, statesman and court advisor Niccolo Machiavelli was born on May 3, 1469 in Florence, Italy. Starting out as a clerk, Machiavelli quickly rose in the ranks because he understood balance of power issues involved in many of his diplomatic missions. Machiavelli's political pursuits quickly ended after he was imprisoned by the Medici family. Machiavelli is best known for "The Prince," his guide to power attainment and cutthroat leadership. He also wrote poetry and plays, including a comedy named "Mandragola." Niccolo Machiavelli died on June 21, 1527 in Florence.
