As You Like It

Written by William Shakespeare

Part of the Collins Classics Series

As You Like It Synopsis

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players.' Featuring Rosalind, one of Shakespeare's most likeable and strong female protagonists, As You Like It is a comedic play centred around concealed identity, love, exile and artifice. Banished from the court by her uncle, Rosalind flees to the forest with her cousin Celia and her jester, joining her already exiled father, and disguising herself as a boy. In the guise of a young man, she instructs her would-be lover Orlando in the ways of love and in doing so allows Shakespeare to explore the dynamics of the city and the country as well as the sexual politics of the time.
