9780192834195: As You Like It (Oxford World's Classics)

With its witty heroine Rosalind, who has the longest role of Shakespeare's female characters, As You Like It is Shakespeare's most light-hearted and most performed comedy. This edition includes numerous illustrations of productions and reassesses both its textual and performance history, showing how interpretations have changed since the first recorded production in 1740. It also examines Shakespeare's sources and elucidates the central themes of love, pastoral, and doubleness, and provides detailed annotations investigating the play's allusive and often bawdy language.

About the Author:


Alan Brissenden is Reader in English, University of Adelaide, Australia.

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
