This Literature Set includes several texts that can be read alongside any of Shakespeare’s comedies (e.g., A\nMidsummer Night's Dream, The Taming of the Shrew, and The Merchant of Venice). The initial texts in this set will\nhelp students understand elements of Shakespearean comedies and compare and contrast modern definitions of\ncomedy to traditional views. The set also includes a Greek myth that guides students to consider how Shakespeare\ndrew upon classic literature in his plays. As students conclude this set, they will explore how Shakespeare’s unique\nuse of language impacts his storytelling.
