From the Royal Shakespeare Company – a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's dazzling comedy.
 
This book includes:
               
*  An introduction to Love's Labour's Lost by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate
*  The play – with clear explanatory notes on each page
*  A scene-by-scene analysis
*  An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre
*  A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play
 
The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This book presents a historical overview of Love's Labour's Lost in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with three leading Directors – Terry Hands, Liz Shipman and Gregory Doran– so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible - a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.
