    Love's Labours Lost

    Ok so I'm ploughing my way through the works of Shakespeare and just finished Love's Labours Lost. I found this to be a comedy only because of the sworn oaths taken yet in the bat of an eyelid they all crumbled, including the king and then after all the tomfoolery find that for their trouble, they must take an oath not unsimilar in order to secure the hand of the women they love!

    I was a little confused about Costard and Armado when it came to their romp with Jacquenetta and was unsure about his fate. Is anyone clear about this?
