High School Teacher
As you can see in the link below, gender issues are considered of primary importance for this play, as women are portrayed in a dual nature while they try to figure out the confusing behavior of the men. While all this is going on, Adriana must keep things running smoothly at home, almost acting as both man and woman in handling business and home. In addition, another important theme in The Comedy of Errors is identity - and not just the identities of the two sets of twins. There is also the identity of the Abbess, who turns out to be the long-lost mother, Aemilia, of Antipholus of Ephesus and Antipholus of Syracuse.
