Merry wives of Windsor (Shakespeare, William).
- "The Merry Wives of Windsor is a much neglected comedy by Shakespeare. At times considered one of his weaker plays, it is often dismissed or marginalised. However, critical developments in feminist, ecocritical and new historicist criticism have led to a revival of interest, and this collection of 18 essays by top Shakespeare scholars sheds new light on the play. The detailed introduction by Evelyn Gajowski and Phyllis Rackin provides a historical survey of the play and ties into an evolving critical and cultural context. The books sections look in turn at Textuality and Intertextuality; Feminism; Materialism; Psychoanalysis; Historicism; Ecocriticism; Presentism and Performance to provide a contemporary critical analysis of the play"-- Provided by publisher.
