This book focuses on a literary figure, Shakespeare's Falstaff, who has taken on a life independent of the plays in which he first appeared. The highlights of Falstaff's "career," included in this collection, are works by two major artistic figures of the 20th century: Fernand Crommelynck (1886-1970) and Orson Welles (1915-1985). Each of the Falstaff plays in this volume is preceded by a preface, and the anthology as a whole is framed by an historical introduction and a comprehensive critical bibliography.
