William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)

William Shakespeare, "Much Ado About Nothing" (The New Cambridge Shakespeare, Updated Edition)
Edited by F. H. Mares
Cambridge University Press | 2003 | ISBN: 0521532507 | 188 pages | siPDF | 7.2 MB

Much Ado has always been popular on the stage. This edition pays especial attention to the history and range of theatrical interpretation, in which the most famous actors, from the time of Garrick to the present, have appeared as the sparring lovers Benedick and Beatrice. A full commentary includes annotation of the many sexual jokes in the play that have been obscured by the complexity of Elizabethan language.

For this updated edition Angela Stock has added a new section to the Introduction in which she reviews the romantic and the darker, more cynical aspects of the play in the light of late twentieth-century stage, film and critical interpretations. She also tackles the interesting question of Beatrice's proper age and the critical fortunes of Hero and Claudio in terms of the play's interest in sexuality and misogyny, eavesdropping and deception.
