3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Roman Clodia TOP 100 REVIEWER on 22 Jan. 2011
Format: Paperback
Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare's liveliest and most accessible romantic comedies - but also deals intelligently with issues of gender, sexual desire, class and social harmony.

The enchanting story of Viola dressed as the page Cesario, with whom both Orsino and Orsino's erstwhile object of desire fall in love, is filled with rapturous poetry that articulates love, desire and romantic melancholy. But these central relationships are modulated by Malvolio's desire for his mistress Olivia, the bawdy comedy of Sir Toby Belch, and Antonio's unrequited desire for Viola's twin, Sebastian.

Ultimately social harmony is restored - but the portrait of Malvolio gives us an insight, perhaps, into how characters such as Edmund in King Lear, and Iago are created.

So a sunny, feel-good romantic comedy, but shaded lightly by a darker tinge.

By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER on 26 Jan. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Is slippered middle age on the horizon? Do I seem to prefer Shakespeare's comedies - famously unfunny - to his historical tragedies, nowadays? I certainly didn't get far, at least not yet, with Coriolanus, but Twelfth Night, as with As You Like It, is easy reading. Disguise, mistaken identity, hopeless infatuation, a medley of clowns and love triumphant. All that's missing is a bit with a dog.

It's winter and the rain it raineth every day, so why not curl up with this one?

This was bought for our university student daughter who is studying English. It is a course requirement and fits the bill.

Excellent addition to your 12 Night shelf 21 Dec. 2008
By Sammy Clemens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There are several really worthwhile editions of 12th Night, but don't overlook this one.

The Foreword and notes are excellent and useful; the format's sturdy and readable.

It's a good copy to have for the scholar/performer/director.

Hard to follow 22 Oct. 2013
By Mary B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was thorough but a bit hard to follow and the notes were too 'intellectual' for me. I prefer more straightforward explanations and descriptions of words and phrases.
