KEY LITERARY ELEMENTS

SETTING

The play is set in Ephesus, an ancient Greek city, celebrated for its magical arts. The action of the play unfolds upon a street, or in Shakespearean language, a "mart," with its three street doors; these doors are marked with signs to symbolize three residences. The phoenix represents the house of Antipholus of Ephesus; a porcupine stands for the courtesan's house; and the third door is that of a Priory, wherein the Abbess of Ephesus resides.
