A simple enough question this morning. The tragedies often get the most attention, but what of the comedies? What, in your opinion, is Shakespeare's *best* comedy?
|Gaby Stenberg as Titania, 1944|
While I definitely had some "laughed so hard I cried" moments with Comedy of Errors and As You Like It, I think I'd find it hard not to nominate Midsummer as the overall funniest. I always tend to go right for that last scene, but really, it's pretty darned funny from the beginning. "You have her father's love, Demetrius ... marry him!"
