The Comedy of Errors. Introduction and Shakespeare's Career in the Theater: Jonathan Bate.

The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's early plays. It is his shortest and one of his most farcical comedies, with a major part of the humour coming from slapstick and mistaken identity, in addition to puns and word play. The Comedy of Errors is, along with The Tempest, one of only two Shakespearean plays to observe the Aristotelian principle of unity of time-that is, that the events of a play should occur over 24 hours.

This is a well-illustrated book which captures the Shakespeare's humor. I enjoyed reading it with my kids, in preparation for taking them to see the play.

William Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors is considered one of his earliest written plays. It's also the shortest and one of his most simple comedies. It engages the audience in puns, pranks, and slapstick humor. The characters in this play are two sets of twins who are by appearance identical and were separated at birth without their knowledge. He gives Dromio some money to book an inn but then runs into the other Dromio and believes his own servant is trying to make a fool of him. A series of further confusions take place with everyone's identities that make the Ephesian Antipholus' wife insecure and all parties very confused.

The Comedy of Errors is one of William Shakespeare's earliest plays, believed to have been written between 1592 and 1594. It tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. This book was one of the first major biographies of the Bard of Avon. It was published in 1898, based on the article contributed to the Dictionary of National Biography. He is often called England's national poet and the Bard of Avon.

Hilarious fun, this early comedy is filled with the merry violence of slapstick and farce. When two sets of twins, separated and apparently lost to each other, all end up in the rowdy, rollicking city of Ephesus, the stage is set for mix-ups, mayhem, and mistaken identity--plus the timeless puns, jokes, gags, and suspense that makes this play a wonderful theatrical frolic and a brilliant tour de force of language and laughter.

As someone who is reading Shakespeare for the second time at the age of 40 and who considers himself a careful reader, I am always surprised to find the Oxford editors bring new ways of looking at the plays. In this introduction, Whitworth does a commendable job of explaining the importance of The Comedy of Errors which is usually dismissed as light weight farce, by explaining the history of critiism of the play and it social relevance.
Presented as a Christmas entertainment for the queen, The Comedy cleverly combines plots from two Plautus plays as well as introducing plot elements of his own.
I-- a mere mortal-- have no ability to criticize Shakespeares truly immortal genious. As the best writer ever, all I can do is enjoy the work. The scholarly intro allows you to heighten the pleasure seeing thing that might not be seen at surface level.
An additional benefit of the Oxford Shakespeare is that it is annotated with just enough notes-- on the same page as the text.
If you read Shakespeare for enjoyment or for a class, Oxford is the best.

Includes a wonderful introduction to reading Shakespeare, e.g., word order, apostrophes, and verse/prose. Plus detailed guidance specific to Comedy of Errors, e.g., stage direction, motifs & themes, and map/history. The size, font, format/page layout, print and paper quality make this book a true joy to read, along with the fantanstic line by line annotations and comments.

This book is golden! The cut of the play gives the feel of the entire work and all of the suggestions on staging and props are right on for a middle-high school production of the play. I can't wait to do another play from the series next year.

This edition benefits from the editor's extensive knowledge of the Shakespeare canon, especially in the 50 pages of the technical introduction, in the footnotes to the text, and in the appendices that deal with performance history. Highly recommended.
