Shakespearean comedy has as much to do with the structure and movement of the drama as with the wit of its dialogue or the humour of its characters. In these four comedies there is a near-tragic crisis at which disaster or happiness may ensue, but the overriding force of goodwill and the power of understanding, love and generosity brings us through to a joyful conclusion.2/5(1). “Comedies,” as one of William Shakespeare’s contemporaries wrote, “begin in trouble and end in peace.” This is certainely true of the four masterworks selected for this collection, each of which represents a significant stage in the development of the world’s greatest dramatist. Plautus was the single greatest influence on Western comedy. Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors and Moliere's The Miser are two subsequent classics directly based on Plautine ercangenc.coms himself borrowed from the Greeks, but his jokes, rapid dialogue, bawdy humour, and irreverent characterizations are the original work of an undisputed genius.4/5(1).
