Overview


Twelfth Night is one of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays in the modern theatre, and this edition places particular emphasis on its theatrical qualities throughout. Peopled with lovers misled either by disguises or their own natures, it combines lyrical melancholy with broad comedy.

The introduction analyses its many views of love and the juxtaposition of joy and melancholy, while the detailed commentary pays particular attention to its linguistic subtleties.

Music is particularly important in Twelfth Night, and this is the only modern edition to offer material for all the music required in a performance. James Walker has re-edited the existing music from the original sources, and where noe exists has composed settings compatible with the surviving originals.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

    I just have to say that I laughed when I saw the comment that sa

    I just have to say that I laughed when I saw the comment that said, 'So many typos!' Obviously, they do not
    understand Shakespeare's language. This book is absolutely wonderful. I most definitely recommend 
    this for students in high school through college. Maybe middle school though it's a very small chance they
    will understand the concept and comedy. As always, Twelfth Night is underrated by critics. A true classic!!
