The Comedy of Errors (Barnes & Noble Shakespeare) (PagePerfect NOOK Book) by William Shakespeare

In its evocations of love, loss, and the renewal of marital and family bonds, Shakespeare's entertaining-and often unsettling-early comedy of mistaken identities anticipates the great romances of his later career. The Barnes & Noble Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is based on the text of the First Folio of 1623, providing a text as close as possible to the play Shakespeare wrote.

Barnes & Noble Shakespeare features newly edited texts of the plays prepared by the world's premiere Shakespeare scholars. Each edition provides new scholarship with an introduction, commentary, unusually full and informative notes, and account of the play as it would have been performed in Shakespeare's theaters, and an essay on how to read Shakespeare's language.

About the Author

Widely esteemed as the greatest writer in the English language, William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was an actor and theatrical producer in addition to writing plays and sonnets. Dubbed "The Bard of Avon," Shakespeare oversaw the building of the Globe Theatre in London, where a number of his plays were staged, the best-known of which include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth. The First Folio, a printed book of 36 of his comedies, tragedies, and history plays, was published in 1623.
