Although one of Shakespeare's most popular plays, Twelfth Night continues to challenge readers and audiences. Aimed at students and general readers, this companion to the play describes its textual history and considers its historical and cultural contexts. Ford (English, Delta State U.) also looks at the play's dramatic structure and major themes before exploring various critical approaches. The final chapter focuses on Twelfth Night in performance.
