A masterpiece of practical criticism, Lovers, Clowns, and Fairies rediscovers the pleasure of reading comedies. The result is a wonderfully readable book that renews our delight in the enchanting possibilities of literature.

A masterpiece of practical criticism, Lovers, Clowns, and Fairies rediscovers the pleasure of reading comedies. A Midsummer Night's Dream, in its "perfection," is Tave's point of departure. Its characters fall neatly into the three groups of Tave's title and fulfill to perfection their functions of desire, foolishness, and power. From the magical concord of Shakespeare's resolution, Tave moves to works whose character face ever greater difficulties in reaching a happy conclusion.

Through dreams and shadows and strangeness, through blinding charms and eye-opening counter-charms, through moments of mortification and laughter-thus Stuart M. Tave traces the journey of the lovers, clowns, and fairies who populate comedies from A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Waiting for Godot. Tave avoids the pitfalls of theory, taking instead a close look at particular works to give us a sense of the relations between certain dramas and novels that are called comedies.
