The Merry Wives of Windsor is a comedy by William Shakespeare first published in 1602, though believed to have been written in or before 1597. The Windsor of the play's title is a reference to the town of Windsor, also the location of Windsor Castle, in Berkshire, England. Though nominally set in the reign of Henry IV, the play makes no pretence to exist outside contemporary Elizabethan era English middle class life.

Each book includes an essay on the theatrical world of Shakespeare’s time. Only 10 left in stock (more on the way).

Penguin Books, 2002 - 104 sayfa. Despite a consistent record of attracting appreciative audiences to the theater, The Merry Wives of Windsor has not received as much favorable criticism as it merits. Focusing on the unconventional Sir John Falstaff-one of Shakespeare's most vivid creations, best known for his role as confidant to Prince Hal in the Henry IV plays-this witty and satiric farce is perhaps Shakespeare's most realistic comedy.

William Shakespeare, 1564 - 1616 Although there are many myths and mysteries surrounding William Shakespeare, a great deal is actually known about his life. He was born in Stratford-Upon-Avon, son of John Shakespeare, a prosperous merchant and local politician and Mary Arden, who had the wealth to send their oldest son to Stratford Grammar School. At 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway, the 27-year-old daughter of a local farmer, and they had their first daughter six months later.

Moronydit
Perhaps (?) not among the best known of Shakespeare's works, this play partakes of his ironic and tragic celebration of Roman ideals, namely, "laus", "gloria", "virtus" in particular. The aristocracy of Coriolanus' Rome "appears" dedicated to high-sounding and noble ends - Roman: honour, bravery, valour, proper governance. The governance is presented as "organic" and therefore just. Pleasure is significantly absent from this universe. Continuation as concept and even mere consequences - are best left out of sight. The character of Volumnia devalues what would be "feminine" ends in the language and imagery "she" uses, a deathly and mechanistic language used to describe her son. Marilyn French has seen similarities between Coriolanus-the-character and another notorious misanthrope, Timon of Athens: the search for honor, fame and the attempt to act according to socially accepted rules moves on to a quest for self-exaltation. Without firm rooting in the community - yet while using this very community - there is only the self, and the self cannot provide its own end. One editor having noted that the adjective "alone" occurs more often in Coriolanus than in any other play by Shakespeare, the isolation the eponymous character finds himself in is typical, as it were, of an opposition found between those heroes embodying the "chivalric" as opposed to the "heroic" or "Herculean" ideal (Antony, Coriolanus, Achilles in Troilus and Cressida.) But Hercules is a demi-god: the characters are not; punishment of hubris - Coriolanus' bravery leads to extreme arrogance, as he sets himself above all men - means banishment, isolation, and death.

This is one of Shakespeare's most powerful, and state of the art plays, yet it is still inadequately known and performed. His haunting portrayal of a charismatic political outsider, a man riven by a river of self-hatreds and insecurities and just as contemptuous of the mob as he is of the political elite who use him for their own purposes, is just as relevant today as in the 16th century, in the shadow of Essex. The book's introduction, by Jonathan Crewe is first rate in understanding both the play and the character of Coriolanus, and I recommend this play for anyone wishing to get his or her feet wet in learning about Shakespeare's tragedies.

Coriolanus is not --never has been -- one of my favorites of Shakespeare's works. But the volume under review is in the Arden 3rd series and I've slowly been working my way through the 3rd series volumes as they appear. I'm more than pleased to have read this new treatment of Coriolanus: the editor has done an outstanding job of providing historical context for the play, carefully comparing it to the treatment of the story given in Shakespeare's sources. The editorial machinery carefully adheres to the Arden series standards, explaining how other editions have dealt with textual problems, and providing cogent arguments for the choices made in this edition. I've even come to like the play better. Highly recommended.

I laughed at Amazon's book review fields... this is some of the best literature ever written. There is not really anything like Shakespeare. I hate that they made us read Romeo and Juliet in high school. It has its merits but it is blah compared to something like this that touches on, I feel, much more relevant themes for someone in high school.

This is one of those Shakespearean plays that very few casual readers know of; it is not, generally, a play that is required reading in any but the most in-depth literature courses, and most people have never heard of it or know of it only by title. This is truly a shame, because it is one of Shakespeares BEST works. It is the story of a man too honorable for his own good, who loses all due to the conniving of clever politicians because he refuses to play the game by their rules and flatter the people with weasel-words and empty promises. Truly, a wonderful story with a far better plot than most of Shakespeare's plays, and language just as musical as any of them. If you've read Shakespeare's better-known plays and enjoyed the language, do yourself a favor and make yourself familiar with this lesser-known play.

Wow, I wish I'd read customer reviews before I purchased.... but alas, I thought I knew all there was to know about this edition. While normally I have great luck with Folger editions, this one is missing 12 pages (different from the ones missing in books owned by previous reviewers) and there are also duplicate pages. Pretty shabby, Folger. Fie on your publisher. Get your act together.

I normally like the Folger Shakespeare books, but I had the same problem that one of the other reviewers had with this one: missing pages and duplicate pages. My copy is missing pages 195 through 218. They seem to be replaced with duplicate pages. I've never had such an issue with another book. Now I need to try to contact the publisher to get a new, complete copy. Fun times.
Terrible choice. Not at all easy to read. The author or publisher has inserted parenthetical translations / explanations within the play's text, thereby providing frequent interruptions for anyone who actually wanted to read the play. You'd be better off without their help at all.
