Not illustrated. 1887 Excerpt: ...not the very earli-est, of the comedies, the date commonly assigned to it being the poet's twenty-fifth year. It was first published in 1598 in an edition "corrected and augmented." Shakspere's work on Titus Andronicus is alone thought to be earlier than this in its original form. No play or story is known on which this comedy could have been founded. Editors have discovered only a passage in Monstrelet, concerning a negotiation between the Kings of Navarre and France, by which Navarre gave up the castle of Cherbourg, the county of Evreux, and all the other lordships he possessed within the kingdom of France, and received the duchy of Nemours and two hundred thousand gold crowns. The scene is Navarre. Coleridge says of the play: "The satire is chiefly on follies of words.... The frequency of the rhymes, the sweetness as well as the smoothness of the metre, and the number of acute and fancifully illustrated aphorisms, are generalizing and condensing; it ends in realizing and expanding."
