Love's Labour's Lost (Kobo eBook)
Love's Labour's Lost is a wonderful comedy written by a genius English poet and playwright William Shakespeare. The heroes' prototypes of the play are Shakespeare's contemporaries: French King Henry of Navarre who ascended the throne named as Henry IV (known in a play as Ferdinand), his first wife Marguerite de Valois, and his closest companions by their own names Marshal Biron, Duke Longueville and Duke Dumaine. It is believed that Shakespeare used a historical fact as a plot for this play — the meeting of Catherine de Medicis and the King Henry of Navarre which aimed to resolve some political issues. The playwright applied his fantasy which added intrigue and humour to this fact.
