Book Description Merriment abounds in five of the Bard's most popular comedies: Much Ado About Nothing, in which a betrothed couple sets a lover's trap for a confirmed bachelor and his sharp-tongued sparring partner; Twelfth Night; or What You Will, the tale of a shipwrecked maiden who disguises herself as a boy and assists a duke in wooing a recalcitrant sweetheart; A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which the fairies of an enchanted forest employ a love potion to sport with four young lovers; As You Like It, concerning the retreat of banished royalty to a greenwood, where the constraints of everyday life are loosened and the characters free to reinvent themselves; and The Merry Wives of Windsor, starring the jolly old rogue Sir John Falstaff in a madcap romp that gives his greed and vanity a humorous comeuppance.
