Product Description

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a lovely, immensely entertaining, and—when provocatively mounted—haunting play.

Yet it is too often misused as an occasion for slapstick comedy. Even many of the best productions realize only a fraction of its sublimity.

The Book of “Twelfth Night, or What You Will”: Musings on Shakespeare’s Most Wonderful (and Erotic) Play explores the play’s arresting ambiguities, with an emphasis on the sexual. It’s for anyone who loves this rhapsodic play, and especially for the new Twelfth Night, or What You Will audience that has greater expectations of theater companies mounting one of the world’s strangest comedies.
