Book Description

The Merry Wives of Windsor, Shakespeare's only thoroughly English comedy, created an archetypal literary figure in the shape of the devious, irrepressible John Falstaff. This stimulating new edition celebrates the play as a joyous exploration of language, but also places elements of its plot firmly in a continental, specifically Italian, tradition of romantic comedy. It draws out the complexities of Merry Wives as a multi-plot play, and takes a fresh and challenging look at both textual and dating issues; a facsimile of the first Quarto is included as an appendix. The play's extensive performance history, both dramatic and operatic, is fully explored and discussed. ‘This is a significant and substantive edition, in that nothing has been taken for granted, everything has been opened to reconsideration. The commentary is exceptionally detailed and attentive to questions of language and meaning.’ John Jowett, Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham, Shakespeare Quarterly

5.0 étoiles sur 5 " according to which Queen Elizabeth enjoyed Falstaff so much in the two "Henry IV" plays ... 10 juillet 2015

There's a legend that goes with "The Merry Wives of Windsor," according to which Queen Elizabeth enjoyed Falstaff so much in the two "Henry IV" plays that she publicly wished Shakespeare would put him in another play. So, the idea goes, since Falstaff dies in "Henry IV, Part 2," Shakespeare wrote a regular comedy for Falstaff, what might now be termed a "prequel," but with nothing that would make it a history play. Naturally, with avid diehards out there still denying Shakespeare was even the author of the plays attributed to him, this legend is impossible to verify. It is, however, a good way of approaching the comedy. It was surely conceived as a showcase for Falstaff, highlighting the rascal in him (in real life he would be intolerable), and also demonstrating how irresistible his jokes and stratagems are. Don't be put off by the first scene of the play, which might be confusing because of an unusual surfeit of archaic words. Read on, and all will soon be made clear. Most of the play is easy reading, and the plots of the merry wives against Falstaff really do urge us on. The play is hard to put down. The ending is classic Shakespeare. I'm sure it isn't too much of a spoiler to say that Falstaff is treated much better than Malvolio (at the end of "Twelfth Night"). "Merry Wives" has a light, happy touch, and it ends on a merry note.

Interesting and this book held my attention much more than other Shakespeare works. The most risque of his books in my opinion.

FALSTAFF And these are not fairies? I was three or four times in the thought they were not fairies; and yet the guiltiness of my mind, the sudden surprise of my powers, drove the grossness of the foppery into a received belief, in despite of the teeth of all rhyme and reason, that they were fairies. See now how wit may be made a Jack-a-Lent when 'tis upon ill employment! -Sir John Falstaff

Seems like a quote Sagan might have used.

It's Shakespeare, what could I add to encourage reading? It's one of his less read farces and enjoyable with some very funny scenes and good witty, battle of the sexes type jokes and themes. It was likely written to give a central part for Falstaff.

Great Shakespeare's text. Witty, clever, dynamic, ahead of his time. Several imbroglios involving couples, future lovers, dignitaries of the shire, common people.
