As You Like It, Paperback

As You Like It Paperback

Edited by Michael Hattaway

Part of the The New Cambridge Shakespeare series



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.
