Book Description

The Sparkling repartee between the fair visitors from France and their host in Navarre, whose vow to study out of sight of woman is quickly broken, makes Loves Labours Lost one of the most delightful and stageworthy of Shakespears comedies.

Widely considered Shakespeares most intellectually challenging comedy, "Loves Labours Lost" nevertheless offers a feast of broad, farcical humor, plot twists, Elizabethan cultural allusions, and irrepressibly clever turns-of-phrase.
Under the editorial supervision of Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, two of todays 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 Shakespeares 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 Shakespeares life and times; and black-and-white illustrations.
Ideal for students, theater professionals, and general readers, these modern and accessible editions set a new standard in Shakespearean literature for the twenty-first century.
