A pair of twins are separated by a shipwreck, each believing the other has drowned. A lovesick duke woos a countess deep in mourning for her brother, while her rowdy household plots the downfall of her puritanical steward. Disguise, confusion, and mistaken identity follow in Shakespeare’s great comedy of love in all its manifestations. 

Under the editorial supervision of Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, two of today’s most accomplished Shakespearean scholars, this Modern Library series incorporates definitive texts and authoritative notes from William Shakespeare: Complete Works. Each play includes an Introduction as well as an overview of Shakespeare’s theatrical career; commentary on past and current productions based on interviews with leading directors, actors, and designers; scene-by-scene analysis; key facts about the work; a chronology of Shakespeare’s life and times; and black-and-white illustrations.

Ideal for students, theater professionals, and general readers, these modern and accessible editions from the Royal Shakespeare Company set a new standard in Shakespearean literature for the twenty-first century.

In preparation for a trip to Ashland, I've been slogging my way through the five Shakespeare plays being performed there this season. Twelfth Night was the 5th play I read. What a delight: a ridiculous plot, great characters, much humor. So looking forward to seeing it performed. And now I'm finished reafing Shakespeare until next summer. On the lookout for something very light: perhaps a romantic mysterious western?

I usually don't read Shakespeare, but this one is awesome! A lot of comedy and stuff is going on in the same time.
