Synopsis

Twelfth Night by Prof. Harold Bloom

An intricate comedy featuring separated twins, disguises, and impediments to love, Twelfth Night is Shakespeare's farewell to the comedic genre, and what many consider to be his greatest achievement in that mode. This invaluable new study guide to one of Shakespeare's greatest plays contains a selection of the finest criticism through the centuries on Twelfth Night . Students will also benefit from the additional features included in this volume, such as an introduction by Harold Bloom, an accessible summary, analysis of key passages, a comprehensive list of characters, a biography of Shakespeare, and more.
