Shakespeare's Practical Jokes: An Introduction to the Comic in His Work

Portada
Bucknell University Press, 2007 - 236 pàgines
There is a mountain of work on Shakespeare's comedies but very little on what, in all the plays, can be described as comic. This title approaches this topic via a number of practical joke episodes, some of them well known - the deceptions Hal and Poins practice on Falstaff, the tricking of Malvolio or Parolles.
