This volume presents a wide range of recent critical essays exemplifying different approaches to Shakespeare's work in general and Twelfth Night in particular. Essays are written from positions of new historicism, deconstruction, feminism, Marxism, reader response, and others. The introduction, written especially for the volume, makes accessible to students at all levels the diversity of the contemporary study of Shakespeare and its wider importance.
