The Madness of George III Free read À 106 Alan Bennett ¹ 6 Characters A great comic writer and so he is but he can also be the most moving of dramatists Daily Telegrap. Truthfully I wasn t really in the mood for this I got fired up about Bennett after reading and seeing The History Boys and obviously this was the next readily available title It s like The West Wing in the nineteenth century It seems to take royalty as of an ingrained staple than a Yank like me can grasp so maybe I just need to wallow in the annals of Bourbon Palace a while longer or something I ll give it another whirl some other day It s obviously about George III s problems with porphyria and how his physicians didn t know how to handle it and how his political bedfellows used it to further their own careers Hmm I m already getting interested again Look for another review in a few weeks
