Much Ado About Nothing, Paperback / softback Book

Paperback / softback

Description

Edited, introduced and annotated by Cedric Watts, M.A., Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, University of Sussex. The Wordsworth Classics' Shakespeare 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. Much Ado About Nothing has long been celebrated as one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies.

The central relationship, between Benedick and Beatrice, is wittily combative until love prevails.

Broader comedy is provided by Dogberry, Verges and the watchmen.

The drama ranges between the destructively sinister and the lyrically romantic, giving the whole a complex and sometimes problematic character.

Numerous revivals, in the theatre and on screen, have displayed the lively variety and interpretative openness of this engaging comedy.
