Edited, Introduced and Annotated by Cedric Watts, Research Professor of English, University of Sussex.

The Wordsworth Classics' Shakespeare's Series presents a newly-edited sequence of William Shakespeare's works. The textual editing takes account of recent scholarship while giving the material a careful reappraisal.

Variously melancholy, lyrical, joyous and farcical, Twelfth Night has long been a popular comedy with Shakespearian audiences. The main plot revolves around mistaken identities and unrequited love. Both Olivia and Orsino are attracted to Viola, who is disguised as a young man; and Viola’s brother, Sebastian, finds that he is loved not only by Antonio but also by Olivia.

Meanwhile, in the comic sub-plot, Sir Toby Belch and his companions outwit the vain Malvolio, who is ludicrously humiliated. While offering broad comedy, Twelfth Night teasingly probes gender-roles and sexual ambiguities.

Textul de pe ultima copertă

This volume includes the text of Twelfth Night as prepared and annotated by David Swain for The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, and is accompanied by the excellent introduction and supplementary materials from the anthology. The diverse and extensive appendices acquaint readers with Shakespeare's sources and contextualize the play within Elizabethan society. The appendices include an excerpt from Barnabe Riche's "Of Apollonius and Silla," Shakespeare's primary source of inspiration for the play; selections from Galen, Plato, and others illustrating Elizabethan attitudes toward gender and sexuality; excerptions illuminating contemporary moral discomfort with the theatre, such as Philip Stubbes's "Of Stage-plays and Interludes, with their wickedness"; and pieces on music and duelling that illustrate cultural conventions important to the interpretation of Twelfth Night.

This is one of several Broadview Anthology of British Literature Editions being released this year; those wishing to teach the text will have the option of including the convenient stand-alone book as part of a specially-priced shrink-wrapped package together with a volume of the anthology.


Notă biografică

William Shakespeare wurde im Jahr 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon geboren und starb dort 1616. Er war ein englischer Dramatiker, Lyriker und Schauspieler.Shakespeare wuchs in einer wohlhabenden Bürgerfamilie auf und besuchte vermutlich die Stratforder Lateinschule. Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete er eine Bauerntochter, mit der er drei Kinder bekam. Man vermutet, dass er von 1582 bis 1590 als Lehrer arbeitete. Es gibt keine Anhaltspunkte dafür, dass Shakespeare eine Universität besucht hat.Ab 1592 ist bekannt, dass Shakespeare Mitglied der führenden Theatergruppe Londons war, für die er auch eigene Stücke schrieb. Es entstanden u.a. die Königsdramen und die Komödien "Der Widerspenstigen Zähmung", "Ein Sommernachtstraum" und "Viel Lärm um nichts". "Romeo und Julia', eine der berühmtesten Liebestragödien der Weltliteratur, entstammt wohl dem Jahr 1598. Nach der Jahrhundertwende schuf Shakespeare u.a. die Tragödien "Hamlet", "Othello" und "Macbeth"Als Teilhaber des Londoner Globe Theatre erwarb sich Shakespeare Vermögen und Einfluss. Seine Truppe "Lord Chamberlain's Men" trat öfter auch am Hof der Königin Elisabeth auf.Mit 46 Jahren kehrte Shakespeare wohlhabend nach Stratford zurück und verbrachte dort seine letzten Lebensjahre, in denen er noch öfters nach London reiste und auch weitere Theaterstücke produzierte.William Shakespeare starb 1616 im Alter von 52 Jahren in Stratford-upon-Avon.
