Named for the twelfth night after Christmas, the end of the Christmas season, Twelfth Night plays with love and power. The Countess Olivia, a woman with her own household, attracts Duke (or Count) Orsino. Two other would-be suitors are her pretentious steward, Malvolio, and Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Onto this scene arrive the twins Viola and Sebastian; caught in a shipwreck, each thinks the other has drowned. Viola disguises herself as a male page and enters Orsino's service. Orsino sends her as his envoy to Olivia—only to have Olivia fall in love with the messenger. The play complicates, then wonderfully untangles, these relationships. The authoritative edition of Twelfth Night from The Folger Shakespeare Library, the trusted and widely used Shakespeare series for students and general readers, is now available as an eBook. Features include: · The exact text of the printed book for easy cross-reference · Hundreds of hypertext links for instant navigation · Freshly edited text based on the best early printed version of the play · Full explanatory notes conveniently placed on pages facing the text of the play · Scene-by-scene plot summaries · A key to famous lines and phrases · An introduction to reading Shakespeare’s language · Illustrations from the Folger Shakespeare Library’s vast holdings of rare books · An essay by a leading Shakespeare scholar providing a modern perspective on the play

MÖGE DER VERS MIT EUCH SEIN! Der Barde aus Stratford begibt sich in eine weit, weit entfernte Galaxis. In Shakespeares Star Wars treffen zwei Welten aufeinander, die sonst nicht in einem Atemzug genannt werden. Aber warum eigentlich nicht? Immerhin haben die Figuren aus Star Wars viel mit den Dramatis Personae eines elisabethanischen Dramas gemein: Es gibt einen weisen (Jedi-)Ritter und einen bösen (Sith-) Lord, der eine schöne Prinzessin gefangen hält. Auch der jugendliche Held, der zur Rettung eilt, fehlt nicht. Hinzu kommen noch ein kampferprobter Draufgänger und dessen treuer Begleiter. Ian Doescher hat mit diesem Drama in Stile des großen Meisters Episode IV umgedichtet und dabei alle Vorteile genutzt, die das neue Medium zu bieten hat. Das Resultat ist ein einzigartiges Lesevergnügen.
