"Twelfth Night" is the happiest and most lyrical of Shakespeare's comedies. In this delightful romp of deception and romance, when the lovely Viola (played by Siobhan McKenna) disguises herself as a young man, she quickly falls in love with the Duke she serves. The Duke in turn sends the disguised Viola to woo his lady - the feisty and impetuous Olivia (portrayed by Vanessa Redgrave). Olivia becomes smitten with the young man Viola impersonates, and all careens to a happy resolution by the play's end. Supported by Paul Scofield, Willoughby Goddard and John Neville, who undertake the play's comic parts, this is a joyful and engaging recording.

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
