Shakespeare's Comedy of Love, Paperback (September 2008)
A study that removes some of the critical puzzles that Shakespeare's comedies of love have posed in the past. It shows that what distinguishes the comedies is not their similarity but their variety - the way in which each play is a new combination of essentially similar ingredients.
