In its evocations of love, loss, and the renewal of marital and family bonds, Shakespeare’s entertaining—and often unsettling—early comedy of mistaken identities anticipates the great romances of his later career. The Barnes & Noble Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is based on the text of the First Folio of 1623, providing a text as close as possible to the play Shakespeare wrote.

Barnes & Noble Shakespeare features newly edited texts of the plays prepared by the world’s premiere Shakespeare scholars. Each edition provides new scholarship with an introduction, commentary, unusually full and informative notes, and account of the play as it would have been performed in Shakespeare’s theaters, and an essay on how to read Shakespeare’s language.
