Product Description

This outstanding treasury of great reading includes the bawdy humor of Machiavelli's Mandragola; the poignant, searching wit of Chekov's Uncle Vanya; the ironic social comment of Shaw's Arms and the Man; and five other influential works, including a new translation of Moliere's satire The Miser, which the editors have prepared especially for this book. Accompanied by provocative essays that define and explore the spirit, structure, and meaning of comedy, this unique volume is an ideal companion to the editors' Eight Great Tragedies. Also includes : Aristophane's The Clouds; Shakespeare's Twelfth Night; John Gay's The Beggar's Opera; and Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest.
