This antiquarian book contains William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado about Nothing”. An artful combination of robust comedy and serious meditation, it is thought to have been written in 1598 and 1599. “Much Ado about Nothing” is generally considered one of Shakespeare's best comedies, because it combines elements of robust hilarity with more serious meditations on honour, shame, and court politics. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, actor, and poet - considered to be the greatest writer in the English language, and the world's most celebrated dramatist. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare.
