The Comedy of Errors is likely the very first play Shakespeare ever wrote, and for that reason alone it deserves a special place in literary history. Yet, despite the author's lack of maturity, the play is unmistakably the work of a burgeoning master. A farce of a type that was wildly popular in Shakespeare's day, The Comedy of Errors transcends its genre, and is as accessible and as entertaining as any of the Bard's later comedies. Revolving around the naturally comedic themes of identical twins and mistaken identity, The Comedy of Errors is a delightful milestone in the remarkable career of the greatest dramatist of all time.

    " a silly, enjoyable farce. I love Shakespeare's female characters. "

    " Really underrated play, kinda fluffy compared to Much Ado About Nothing or The Taming of the Shrew, but straightforwardly funny. "

    " A play with a hilariously absurd premise-- two sets of twins separated at birth, each twin with the same name as his brother. Lots of mistaken identities and confusion. This is probably funnier performed than read as a lot of the humour is slapstick. "

    " I just read this for my book group and it was so entertaining! I loved all the mistaken identity, and of course, the twins and more twins. After the first couple of scenes, the reading began to flow very quickly. I believe it is Shakespeare's shortest work, and it was very funny. I'd love to see it performed! "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
