Review

`'The annotation is generally superb...Especially outstanding is the section [in the Introduction] on the play in performance. There are 21 captivating illustrations. This edition shows the result of much original research and it is recommended unreservedly.'' Year's Work in English Studies

5.0 out of 5 stars It will make you love Rom-Com
Reviewed in India on April 13, 2019
As You Like It, is my first Shakespeare novel or I should say romantic comedy and it made me fall in love with it.

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

I have always came across this phrase but never realized that it was Shakespeare's until I finished reading this book. This is just a small version of it but I think still holds the entire play around it.

"As You Like It" is a charming little play with the full array of Shakespearean tropes -- transvestitism, love triangles, and mass confusion.
Backstory: The cruel Duke has deposed his far nicer brother, and the ex-Duke has run off into the Forest of Arden. At the same time, a young man named Orlando has been cast out by his cruel brother Oliver.

Then the Duke decides to exile his niece Rosalind, despite the pleas of his daughter Celia. So Rosalind (disguised as a boy), Celia and the jester Touchstone run away into the Forest of Arden the following night, and soon encounter the exiled Duke and his followers. So does Orlando and his faithful servant Adam.

Because of a previous meeting, Rosalind and Orlando are already in love. But not only does he not recognize her, but because she's disguised as a boy she's attracted the amorous intentions of a local shepherdess. And to make matters even more complex, Touchstone is in a love triangle of his own, and Oliver has stumbled into Arden as well. Is everything going to end well?
The funniest parts involve the love quadrangle between Rosalind, Phebe, Orlando and Silvius, as well as Orlando's wretched poetry and Touchstone's mockery of them.
And it has a likable cast of characters, most of whom are amiable and likable (although I'm still not sure why Orlando and the ex-Duke don't recognize Rosalind!). Celia and Rosalind are fun and sprightly heroines, Orlando is an endearing underdog (if a rotten poet), and there's also the sharp-tongued Touchstone, dour Jacques, and the rather beyotchy Phebe.
I have never read a play or this sort of novel but it's been a great experience starting it and finishing this.
I would say that I will definitely be looking forward to read more like them.
