About the Authors
  • Shakespeare’s As You Like It can appear bright or sombre in performance: a feast of language and a delight for comic actors; or a risk-taking exploration of gender roles. This updated edition provides an account of what makes this popular play both innocent and dangerous. There is a section on recent critical, stage and film interpretations of the play, an updated reading list and a new appendix on an early court performance of As You Like It in 1599. Mapping the complexities of the play’s setting – a no man’s land related to both France and England, the edition also includes detailed commentary on its language and an analytical account of performance.

    • This updated edition contains a new section in the Introduction which takes account of new criticism and performances
    • Includes a new Appendix on an early court performance of As You Like It in 1599
    • Pays special attention to the setting of the play, gender issues and different performance interpretations
