Twelfth Night: Or What You Will
Cambridge University Press, 2004 M02 19 - 170 pages
For this updated edition of Twelfth Night, Penny Gay has written a wholly new Introduction to this well-loved Shakespearean comedy. She stresses the play's theatricality, its elaborate linguistic games and it complex use of Ovidian myths. She analyses the play's delicate balance between romance and realism and its exploration of gender, sexuality and identity. In examing the stage history, Professor Gay suggests that contemporary critical theory could have much to offer 21st century directors and actors.
