Read & Co. Classics presents this new beautiful edition of William Shakespeare’s play, “The Comedy of Errors”, featuring a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare. Set in the city of Ephesus, the comedy is about the reunion of two sets of long-lost identical twins who were separated in a stormy shipwreck as infants. Each set of twins happens to share the names of the other, giving us two called Antipholus and two Dromio. The play follows the mistaken identities and misadventures encountered on their paths to finding each other. It is Shakespeare’s shortest play and considered the most farcical of all his tales. William Shakespeare (1564 – 1616) was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and is celebrated as the world’s most famous dramatist.
