Twelfth Night

twelfth nightTwelfth Night by William Shakespeare, 5/5

This lighthearted and unrelentingly witty play is similar to As You Like It and A Midsummer’s Night Dream, but is my favourite of the three.  While I find it distracting to see the modern version of the text side-by-side with the original, in this case, it really helped me to understand a lot of humour that would otherwise have gone right over my head.

[Why I read it: part of the aforementioned long-term mission to read everything by Shakespeare.  I picked this copy up from the thriftstore.]
