Twelfth Night (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Shakespeare, William

Twelfth Night is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1601-02 as a Twelfth Night's entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. The play expanded on the musical interludes and riotous disorder expected of such an occasion, with plot elemen...ts drawn from the short story Of Apollonius and Silla by Barnabe Rich, based on a story by Matteo Bandello. The first recorded performance was on 2 February 1602, at Candlemas, the formal end of Christmastide in the year's calendar. The play was not published until its inclusion in the 1623 First Folio. The foretitle is believed to be an afterthought, created after John Marston premiered a play titled What You Will, Shakespeare's intended title for this play, during the course of the writing. The title Twelfth Night prepares the audience for its jovial feel of festivities consisting of drink, dance, and giving in to general self-indulgence.
