One of Shakespeare's purest comedies, As You Like It allows the romantic idyll to run its course hindered only by disguise. Banished to the Forest of Arden, Rosalind and her cousin Celia dress as boys to protect themselves in their exile. However, Rosalind's beloved, Orlando, is also in the forest, ignorant of her disguise. Meanwhile, Rosalind finds herself the object of female affections ... This wonderfully witty play with its boldly outspoken heroine and core of optimism and romance pokes gentle fun at the game of love while praising its virtues and celebrating its triumphs. This edition of the text contains notes, a glossary, and an introduction.
