Twelfth Night, Or, What You Will by William Shakespeare Summary

Twelfth Night is one of the most popular of Shakespeare's plays in the modern theatre, and this edition places particular emphasis on its theatrical qualities throughout. Peopled with lovers misled either by disguises or their own natures, it combines lyrical melancholy with broad comedy. The introduction analyses its many views of love and the juxtaposition of joy and melancholy, while the detailed commentary pays particular attention to its linguistic subtleties. Music is particularly important in Twelfth Night, and this is the only modern edition to offer material for all the music required in a performance. James Walker has re-edited the existing music from the original sources, and where noe exists has composed settings compatible with the surviving originals.

Twelfth Night, and the Renaissance Idea of Man by Toni Rudat Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, RWTH Aachen University (Institut fur Anglistik), course: Shakespeare's Comedies, language: English, abstract: SHAKESPEARE was one of the most famous renaissance writers. His play "Twelfth Night" was written during the English renaissance and maybe overlapped with the creation of the great tragedy Hamlet. The aim of this paper is to analyse in what way Shakespeare presented the characters of the play. Central to this discussion are the contemporary understandings of the human nature as well as the psychological assumptions concerning the mental distraction of people. It is undisputable that CICERO and his work "De officiis" had a great impact on the English renaissance humanists. The term "humanism" is a translation of the Italian word 'umanista' which denotes someone who teaches humanae literae. WELLS rightly claims that "the ruling ambition of the humanists was to recover the values of classical civilisation." Their ideal form of government was "a just society, ruled by a wise and responsible oligarchy." And "a humanist was someone who made it his business to understand humankind." So now the audience of Twelfth Night is confronted with an unordered society that consists of characters that absolutely lack the renaissance ideal of how humans should be. It is proposed to show how SHAKESPEARE manages to reorder the mad state Illyria - the setting of the play. Moreover the process of metamorphosing into ideal humans in the sense of the Renaissance understanding will be traced. Since there are reams of publications on SHAKESPEARE'S works a choice of some of them had to be carried out. ROBIN WELLS' monograph Shakespeare's Humanism served as a basis for this paper. WELLS portrays a very detailed image of what concerned the English renaissance humanists. Moreover he classifies SHAKESPEARE and his plays in the contemporary world-view. In order to reconstruct t"
