Both a witty satire of literary clichÃ© and a tender meditation on the varieties of love, As You Like It continues to be one of Shakespeareâs most beloved and widely performed comedies. In the introduction to this new edition, David Bevington traces the complex relationships between the characters in the play, and explores the history of its criticism from Samuel Johnson to the twenty-first century.
As part of the newly launched Broadview Press / Internet Shakespeare Editions series, this edition features a variety of interleaved materialsâfrom facsimile pages, diagrams, and musical scores to illustrations and extended discussions of myth and folkloreâthat provide a context for the social and cultural allusions in the play. Appendices offer excerpts from Shakespeareâs key sources and influences, including Thomas Lodgeâs Rosalind and Ben Jonsonâs Every Man in His Humor.
A collaboration between Broadview Press and the Internet Shakespeare Editions project at the University of Victoria, the editions developed for this series have been comprehensively annotated and draw on the authoritative texts newly edited for the ISE. This innovative series allows readers to access extensive and reliable online resources linked to the print edition.
