Présentation de l'éditeur

Widely regarded as the greatest play right in the English language William Shakespeare wrote 38 plays and 154 sonnets. With works such as Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Mid Summer's Night Dream and The Taming of the Shrew his work has made a lasting impression on western culture. For the last four hundred years Shakespeare's plays have been the most preformed and studied of any playwright. From the words he invented, to the grammar he developed and phrases that linger in our vernacular the "Bard of Avon" has influenced much of the development of the English language. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

a fun early comedy 16 juin 2002
Par NotATameLion - Publié sur
Format: Poche
One of Shakespeare's earlier comedies, "Love's Labour's Lost" does not even hold a candle to some of the Bard's greatest comedic works (A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Tempest, The Winter's Tale). Yet, for all its lack of blazing greatness, the play is indeed a joyful diversion.
The plot is that of a philosopher's paradise being invaded by the most nefarious of
Shakespeare means many things when he speaks of love: often it can be shallow, bawdy lecherous love, sometimes it is an almost Petrachan yearning "courtly" love, once in a while it is a self destructive, clasping, obsessive love. Here it is pretty much straight-up attraction of the "hey, I'd like to marry you" variety.
As the noble, well-meaning but unable to restrain themselves philosopher's fall for the beauties of this tale, many awkward situations occur. Much of the humor here is of this vein. Plays on words and outrageous situations provide most of the laughs.
For fans of Shakespeare, I wholeheartedly endorse this great play. For beginners, I recommend starting with one of the plays mentioned above.

A Light Comedy; A Timely Message; A Heavy Hand 3 août 2006
Par Ralph White - Publié sur
Format: Poche
The Folger Library editions are absolutely the best for scholarship, due to their extensive notation. My preference for Love's Labor's Lost is for the Pelican Books version, with sufficient but abreviated notation. The lighter notation gives wings to Shakespeare's most ponderous romantic comedy.

This is the story of three gentlemen who pledge themselves to three years of intellectual rigor in the court of the King of Navarre, who joins them in their sober enterprise. When the four of them determine that their scholarship must not be interupted by vice, the reader readily understands that their ill-considered commitments can only end in ribald hippocracy. Temptation arrives immediately in the form of the Princess of France and her three ladies in waiting.

The story moves along more or less predictably, though in a style that is almost a parody of Shakespeare. There are scores of allusions, silly, bawdy, and sharp, which apparently would have been recognized by the audience of the time, but which have not travelled well through the intervening four centuries. The result is five acts of mostly turgid iambic pentameter, interrupted by some lilting, if not particularly memorable lines. Such as when Dumaine and Berone start and finish one another's thoughts:

Dumaine: In reason nothing.
Berone: Something then in rhyme.
Dumaine: How follows that?
Berone: Fit in his place and time.

And here are some usages and allusions which you might need to pause to look up:

"misprision" = error
"woodcock" = stupidity
"festinately" = quickly
"dig you den" = give you good evening
"intellect" = purport
"jerks of invention" = strokes of wit
"in print" = to the letter

One of the few lines for which the book is known is, "Where fair is not, praise cannot mend the brow," meaning that compliments cannot make an unattractive person less so.

All in all, Love's Labor's Lost is unlikely to become anyone's favorite Shakespearean comedy. It is for the advanced reader who is willing to take the time to penetrate the subliminal and archaic humor. For that dedicated reader, however, it is worth the effort.

Difficult, But A Worthy Study. 9 avril 2000
Par Sean Ares Hirsch - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Be forewarned. Even if you have read a lot of Shakespeare's plays, this one is difficult and demands much effort to follow. But, if you can push yourself into reading this, it is well worth the time. Shakespeare himself performed the role of Berowne. While this is a comedy, the humour relies on irony as opposed to funny events. Also, unlike his other comedies, this one does not end in utter happieness. The interaction of the characters, as well as the situation comedy (especially in 4.3) is quite memorable. This comedy differs significantly from most of his others, but it is a wonderful piece of literature.

much better than the film 21 mars 2007
Par Robert Leutwiler - Publié sur
Format: CD
If you love the bard, you must buy this or the whole Arkangel series! I like the recent movie of Love's Labors Lost but it is really a Hollywood extravaganza which includes a little S. On the other hand, you can hear the whole text read by specialists on Arkangel.

I think the choice is easy. This is so much better!

Boys will be boys 22 décembre 2010
Par Guillermo Maynez - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This is one of WS's most original comedies, in which the King of Navarre is about to begin a three years' intellectual retirement to the countryside, along with three of his knights, a period of study and reflection. The four men have made solemn vows not to have any contact with women during those three years (to avoid "vice"). But of course at that precise moment there arrives an embassy headed by the Princess of France herself, plus her three ladies-in-waiting. Soon, sexual attraction and misunderstandings begin, all of them mediated by a crazy troupee composed of a mad Spanish gentleman and his page (where have I heard about one of those?), a teacher, a priest, a sheriff, and a buffoon. The main characters are Biron, one of the king's gentlemen, and Rosalin, lady to the queen. To them belong the most poetic, cynical, and sarcastic passages, adn their exchanges exemplify the inevitable misunderstandings present in any love relationship. Biron's interventions are a masterpiece of the masculine interpretation of love and attraction as basically visual phenomena, while Rosaline incarnates the feminine resistance to that puerile perception. The ridiculousness of which is exposed in the scene where the guys, oddly disguised as Russians, court the girls, who in turn have exchanged identities. Boys, of course, make fools of themselves. This is perhaps Shakespeare's only comedy without a happy ending, and to me that is a plus.

As in the rest of his comedies, plot is the least important. What matters most are the characters' parliaments and the revelation, through them, of their personalities and of billiant glimpses on human nature. I enjoyed it pretty well.
