Three Comedies

"The New Folger is an edition that all serious Shakespeare students will want to read and accumulate, and one that many teachers of Shakespeare will surely judge the best available."
-- The Shakespeare Newsletter
The havoc wrought on lovers by magic in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the furious battle of the sexes waged in The Taming of the Shrew, and a stranded woman finding her way in a man's world in Twelfth Night -- this collection of three of Shakespeare's greatest comedies is based on the acclaimed individual Folger editions of the plays. The present volume offers accurate texts in modern spelling, full explanatory notes, and scene-by-scene action summaries.

About the Author

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was born in April 1564 in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, on England’s Avon River. When he was eighteen, he married Anne Hathaway. The couple had three children—an older daughter Susanna and twins, Judith and Hamnet. Hamnet, Shakespeare’s only son, died in childhood. The bulk of Shakespeare’s working life was spent in the theater world of London, where he established himself professionally by the early 1590s. He enjoyed success not only as a playwright and poet, but also as an actor and shareholder in an acting company. Although some think that sometime between 1610 and 1613 Shakespeare retired from the theater and returned home to Stratford, where he died in 1616, others believe that he may have continued to work in London until close to his death.
