About the Play:

William Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It is a joyful story that features some of Shakespeare's most beloved characters and well-known speeches. Unable to act on their feelings and forced into exile in the Forest of Arden, lovers Rosalind and Orlando become entangled in a beguiling game of love, lust and mistaken identity. As You Like It subverts the traditional rules of romance. Gender roles, nature and politics are confused in a play that reflects on how bewildering yet utterly pleasurable life can be.

No Fear Shakespeare gives you Shakespeare's complete text of As You Like It on the left-hand page, side-by-side with an easy-to-understand modern English on the right, with marginal notes and explanations and full descriptions of each character.

What people say:

"In As You Like It, we get Shakespeare the pure poet and philosopher. It is an elegant, sometimes melancholy, often comic meditation on young love. Here the battle of the sexes is treated as a giddy contest, not a knockdown war of wills." — Los Angeles Times

About the Playwright:

Arguably the greatest English-language playwright, William Shakespeare was a seventeenth-century writer and dramatist, and is known as the Bard of Avon. Under the patronage of Queen Elizabeth I, he penned more than 30 plays, 154 sonnets, and numerous narrative poems and short verses. Equally accomplished in histories, tragedies, comedy, and romance, Shakespeare's most famous works include Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, The Taming of the Shrew, and As You Like It. Like many of his contemporaries, including Christopher Marlowe, Shakespeare began his career on the stage, eventually rising to become part-owner of Lord Chamberlain's Men, a popular dramatic company of his day, and of the storied Globe Theatre in London. Extremely popular in his lifetime, Shakespeare's works continue to resonate more than three hundred years after his death. His plays are performed more often than any other playwright's, have been translated into every major language in the world, and are studied widely by scholars and students.
