Love, comedy, and false identities take the stage in this play about Orsino, Duke of Illyria; the countess he romantically pursues; and Viola--the woman disguised as a man who comes between them. This Signet edition includes such additional features as an overview of Shakespeare's life and times; commentary by Samuel Johnson, William Hazlitt, and others; and a stage and screen history.
