Reviews for The Desperate Schoolmaster
Emmeebee chapter 1 . 4/28/2013
Emilia was my favourite character from the play when we studied it, mostly because Des did some silly things, so it's really interesting reading your interpretation of how she got to be where she was. The idea of her stance being due to disillusionment rather than merely practicality is interesting. I'll have to read the play again with this idea in mind! :)

So she never even met her husband until a week before the wedding? I knew Elizabethan marriages were quick, but...a week? Wow. Please, please, please, write more stories in this category! I love the way you've portrayed teenage Emilia!

You've done a good job of conveying her hopelessness here. The only thing I can offer for improvement is maybe to put this into paragraphs as it looks a little "choppy", if that makes sense. I also like how you used little quotes from the book.
