"Twelfth Night, or What You Will" is a lovely, immensely entertaining, and -- when provocatively mounted -- haunting play.

Yet it is too often misused as an occasion for slapstick comedy. Even many of the best productions realize only a fraction of its sublimity.

"The Book of "Twelfth Night, or What You Will" Musings on Shakespeare's Most Wonderful (and Erotic) Play" explores the play's arresting ambiguities, with an emphasis on the sexual. It's for anyone who loves this rhapsodic play, and especially for the new "Twelfth Night, or What You Will" audience that has greater expectations of theater companies mounting one of the world's strangest comedies.

Endorsements

"It is what every book about our greatest writer should be: fun, fascinating, and filled with delights. Myers's analysis is exhaustively researched but effervescently revealed; each trim chapter is a page-turner, compelling the reader to read on. This is a must-have for anyone who loves Shakespeare, but also anyone who doesn't 'get' Shakespeare. After reading Myers's book, you won't be able to get enough." -- John Christian Plummer, director, 2008 Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival production of "Twelfth Night, or What You Will"
