It’s become a cult thing

As You Like It is a pastoral EARLY comedy by William Shakespeare believed to have been written in 1599 or early 1600. As You Like It follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution in her uncle’s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to find safety and love in the Forest of Arden. ( Close to shakies birthplace. His Mother was called Arden )

Typical , joyful and full of life in a forest !

Fleay's_Etching_of_the_Forest_of_ArdenWe encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare’s most famous speeches ( such as “All the world’s a stage” and “A fool! A fool! I met a fool in the forest“).


Jaques provides a sharp contrast to the other characters in the play, always observing and disputing the hardships of life in the country.
