Considered to be Shakespeare's most ornately intellectual plays, «Love's Labour's Lost» is a mental adventure in hilarity and wit. Filled with lexical puns, literary allusions, and shifting poetic forms, it is a rich example of the Bard's linguistic mastery. The play opens with King Phillip of Naverre announcing that the men of his court will devote the coming years to ascetic studies. To reduce distractions, no women will be allowed into the court. A series of hilarious events ensue. The women of the court form an alliance to gain entrance, while the men try to escape to find love. «Love's Labour's Lost» shows eros at its most bewildering and beguiling.
