One critic of the Merry Wives of Windsor argues that no longer does Shakespeare endow the fat knight [Falstaff] with the nimble wit that enabled him in the earlier plays to extricate himself from every embarrassing situation (Wright, xii). The result is a fast-paced farce (Green, Introduction, lxiv) which bears traits of Italian comedy (Green, lxviii). Bate agrees that the play is Shakespeares nearest approach to farce or sitcom (Introduction, ix). There are obvious oversights in the play which may argue for its hasty composition at the behest of Queen Elizabeth. However, as Green writes, Surely Shakespeare deserves some forgiveness for the abundance of loose ends in the play lxxvi). Certainly no Midsummer Nights Dream, the Merry Wives of Windsor does propound a pleasant evening at the theatre.

The Merry Wives of Windsor has recently experienced a resurgence of critical interest. At times considered one of Shakespeare’s weaker plays, it is often dismissed or marginalized; however, developments in feminist, ecocritical and new historicist criticism have opened up new perspectives and this collection of 18 essays by top Shakespeare scholars sheds fresh light on the play. The detailed introduction by Phyllis Rackin and Evelyn Gajowski provides a historical survey of the play and ties into an evolving critical and cultural context. The book’s sections look in turn at female community/female agency; theatrical alternatives; social and theatrical contexts; desire/sexuality; nature and performance to provide a contemporary critical analysis of the play.
