Overview

The Signet Classics edition of William Shakespeare’s comedic play about two enduring human illusions—the dream of a simple life and the ideal of romantic love. 

Banished from her uncle’s court, young princess Rosalind disguises herself as a farmer and encounters a memorable cast of characters—including her love Orlando—in the Forest of Arden in this witty, subversive comedy.

This revised Signet Classics edition includes unique features such as:

• An overview of Shakespeare’s life, world, and theater
• A special introduction to the play by the editor, Albert Gilman
• Selections from Thomas Lodge’s Rosalynd, the source from which Shakespeare derived As You Like It
• Dramatic criticism from Arthur Colby Sprague, Helen Gardener, and others
• A comprehensive stage and screen history of notable actors, directors, and productions
• Text, notes, and commentaries printed in the clearest, most readable text
• And more…
