Summary : CONRADE.What the good-year, my lord! why are you thus out of measure sad?DON JOHN.There is no measure in the occasion that breeds; therefore the sadness is without limit.CONRADE.You should hear reason.DON JOHN.And when I have heard it, what blessings brings it?CONRADE.If not a present remedy, at least a patient sufferance.DON JOHN.I wonder that thou (being as thou say'st thou art, born under Saturn) goest about to apply a moralmedicine to a mortifying mischief. I cannot hide what I am: I must be sad when I have cause, andsmile at no man's jests; eat when I have stomach, and wait for no man's leisure; sleep when I amdrowsy, and tend on no man's business; laugh when I am merry, and claw no man in his humour.CONRADE.Yea; but you must not make the full show of this till you may do it without controlment. You haveof late stood out against your brother, and he hath ta'en you newly into his grace; where it isimpossible you should take true root but by the fair weather that you make yourself: it is needful thatyou frame the season for your own harvest.DON JOHN.I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in his grace; and it better fits my blood to bedisdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to bea flattering honest man, it must not be denied but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with amuzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had mymouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do my liking: in the meantime, let me be that I am, and seek not to alter me.CONRADE.Can you make no use of your discontent?DON JOHN.I make all use of it, for I use it only. Who comes here?Enter BORACHIO.What news, Borachio?14BORACHIO.I came yonder from a great supper: the Prince your brother is royally entertained by Leonato; and Ican give you intelligence of an intended marriage.DON JOHN.Will it serve for any model to build mischief on? What is he for a fool that betroths himself tounquietness?BORACHIO.Marry, it is your brother's right hand.DON JOHN.Who? the most exquisite Claudio?BORACHIO.Even he.DON JOHN.A proper squire! And who, and who? which way looks he?BORACHIO.Marry, on Hero, the daughter and heir of Leonato.DON JOHN.A very forward March-chick! How came you to this?BORACHIO.Being entertained for a perfumer, as I was smoking a musty room, comes me the Prince andClaudio, hand in hand, in sad conference: I whipt me behind the arras, and there heard it agreedupon that the Prince should woo Hero for himself, and having obtained her, give her to CountClaudio.DON JOHN.Come, come; let us thither: this may prove food to my displeasure. That young start-up hath all theglory of my overthrow: if I can cross him any way, I bless myself every way. You are both sure, andwill assist me?CONRADE.To the death, my lord.DON JOHN.Let us to the great supper: their cheer is the greater that I am subdued. Would the cook were of mymind! Shall we go to prove what's to be done

Summary : Equal parts tragedy and history play, Richard III chronicles the rise and short reign of its diabolical title character. Of this masterful creation, esteemed critic Harold Bloom has written, The manipulative, highly self-conscious, obsessed hero-villain moves himself from being the passive sufferer of his own moral and/or physical deformity to becoming a highly active melodramatist. Portrayed as England's curse and as his own worst enemy, the jealous and ambitious Richard would find little glory or peace awaiting him upon his ascension to England's throne. This collection of critical essays about the Bard's Richard III includes classic criticism from a number of notable critics throughout the centuries. Edited by Bloom, this title also features a handy index for quick reference.

Summary : This cutting of Shakespeare's utterly charming and popular comedy MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING features five key scenes, including Beatrice and Benedick's classic initial word-battle, and the uproarious hide-and-seek deception of the two ''lovers. '' The next scenes are the brutal rejection of Hero at the altar by a deceived Claudio and the timeless manhandling of the English language by the bumbling constable Dogberry. In the fifth and final scene, Shakespeare resolves the play's conflicts and confusions, and love reigns again. This cutting really tells the story, and includes some sidesplitting stage business, particularly the back-and-forth physical and verbal parrying between Benedick and Beatrice.

Summary : This volume offers an accessible and thought-provoking guide to this major Shakespearean comedy, surveying its key themes and evolving critical preoccupations. It also provides a detailed and up-to-date history of the play's rich stage and screen performance, looking closely at major contemporary performances, including Josie Rourke's film starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate, Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones at the Old Vic, and the RSC's recent rebranding of it as a sequel. Moving through to four new critical essays, the guide opens up fresh perspectives, including contemporary directors' deployment of older actors within the lead roles, the play's relationship to Love's Labour's Lost, its presence on Youtube and the ways in which tales and ruses in the play belong to a wider concern with varieties of crime. The volume finishes with a guide to critical, web-based and production-related resources and an annotated bibliography provide a basis for further research.

Summary : Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's most imaginative and exuberant comedies, contrasting two pairs of lovers in a witty and suspenseful battle of the sexes. Attracted to each other, the maddeningly skeptical Beatrice and Benedick are dead-locked in a lively war of words until their friends hatch a plot to unite them. The mutually devoted Hero and Claudio, on the other hand, all too quickly fall victim to a malicious plot to part them. Near-fatal complications ensue, but with the help of the hilarious Constable Dogberry and his confederates, the lovers are ultimately united.First presented in 1598, Much Ado About Nothing is one of Shakespeare's last comedies. Its darker undercurrents foreshadow the playwright's growing concern with the frailties of human character that would dominate his late tragedies. But in its clever turns of plot, vivacious displays of wit, jovial conversations, and charming songs, this merry comedy is among Shakespeare's most artistic creations.

Summary : Much Ado About Nothing shows the violence of desire as well as its drive towards creative plotting or matchmaking. In this Handbook, Alison Findlay examines the play's comic and tragic potential in the theatre; its attempts to harmonise love and war, attraction and repulsion. The volume: * explores the play's resonance in early performances with reference to the crisis over fast-changing fashions, gendered notions of honour, and the changing personnel of Shakespeare's company * analyses the play from a performance point of view scene by scene, considering the interactions between spectators and actors * surveys key productions and films, including Barry Jackson's radical modernist production of 1919, the recently-rediscovered television film of Zeffirelli's 1965 National Theatre Production, and Kenneth Branagh's 1993 film version * outlines the play's critical history from the eighteenth century to the present day, with a focus on contemporary concerns such as genre hybridity, sources and intertexts, and the instability of signs and appearances.
