Descrizione

Love's Labour's Lost Edited by H.C. Hart is one of the early romantic comedies crafted by the famous English playwright, William Shakespeare. For readers who are familiar with history, they will notice that the four main characters are loosely based on historical figures that were prominent during the time of Shakespeare. This play has been enjoyed by audiences for hundreds of years, and continues to gain momentum with modern reproductions and revivals in film, radio and television bringing this masterpiece to yet another generation of willing enthusiasts.

The play follows the King of Navarre along with three companions who all attempt to swear off women during a period of fasting and study which is intended to last for three years. Unfortunately, that plan is derailed with the appearance of and subsequent group attraction to the Princess of Aquitaine and her ladies. The play explores many themes such as reality vs. fantasy, masculine desire and love, and the human penchant for rationalization. Like other works written by Shakespeare, this play utilizes pedantic humor, literary allusions, and sophisticated wordplay.

Love's Labour's Lost Edited by H.C. Hart presents an interesting social commentary from the mind and pen of William Shakespeare. This play is a wonderful read for actors, teachers of drama and literature, and historians interested in the work of Shakespeare. This play is easy to read and presents a comical look at the world Shakespeare lived in with its many explorations of social constructs and interpersonal relationships. The layering of themes and social commentary make this a play worth reading over and over again as the reader looks for new meanings within the text.
