In the Shakespearean play that most closely resembles farce, two sets of identical twins, each separated for years, arrive in Ephesus, setting off a madcap series of events and leaving a trail of confusion and mistaken identity in their wake. While evoking one of Shakespeare's recurring themes—the restorative power of love—this early work contains some of the playwright's developing insights on the human condition and presents a portrait of women's various roles in Elizabethan society. With an introduction from Shakespearean scholar Harold Bloom, plus a plot synopsis and a brief biography of Shakespeare, this volume of critical essays will assist students studying The Comedy of Errors.

Each volume in the ""Bloom's Shakespeare Through the Ages"" series contains the finest criticism on a particular work from the Bard's oeuvre, selected under the guidance of renowned Shakespearean scholar Harold Bloom. Providing invaluable study guides, this comprehensive collection sheds light on how our relationship with the works of Shakespeare has evolved through the ages. Each title features: a selection of the best criticism on the work through the centuries; introductory essays on the development of criticism on the work in each century; a brief biography of Shakespeare; a plot synopsis, list of characters, and analysis of several key passages; and, an introduction by Harold Bloom.
