Love's Labour's Lost (New Cambridge Shakespeare)

Love's Labour's Lost (New Cambridge Shakespeare) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Love's Labour's Lost, the first work to bear Shakespeare's name on its title page, differs greatly from his other early plays both for its highly unorthodox ending and its extraordinary use of language. This new edition presents a highly readable, modernised text of the play, freshly edited from the first quarto published in 1598. A thorough but concise scholarly and critical commentary provides exciting new perspectives on Love's Labour's Lost, and a comprehensive introduction discusses the significant elements of the play and its place in theatrical history. New critical trends are reflected in the special attention paid to the play's performance history since 1950, including films and adaptations, with illustrations of several productions. Engaging and illuminating, this will be an invaluable guide for seasoned scholars as well as students approaching the play for the first time.

Synopsis:

A highly readable text of Shakespeare's early play, complete with comprehensive introduction, thorough but concise commentary and performance history.
