Shakespeare : the comedies

R.P. Draper

Shakespeare's comedies combine charm and wit with probing intelligence. Through detailed analysis of passages from "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "Much Ado About Nothing", "As You Like It" and "Twelfth Night", this book explores the satire and sympathy, the linguistic variety, and the dramatic skill which make Shakespearean comedy both entertaining and profound. Part II suggests connections with the rest of Shakespeare's work, and concludes with a survey of comic theory and criticism devoted to the comedies.
