I love this play. I read it with a Shakespeare class in college. We sat for a few hours and read thorugh the whole thing out loud and it was the best time I've ever had. If you're a fan of Shakespeare and good comedy, this is the play for you.

As You Like It has many qualities to attract readers and audiences. Rosalind is one of the great heroines of all romantic literature. The play has more outstanding speeches than almost any other that has ever been written. Astonishing plot complications are quickly resolved in the simplest possible way, reflecting a playwright¿s tour de force. The Forest of Arden appears as a character in creating a magical atmosphere whereby all perceptions change, and all are healed. Right wins out, especially in drawing on good character . . . even from formerly badly behaving people. And for those who love marriages, this book has one of the most impressive ceremonies of all time in literature. Humans have never looked nobler in the end than in this play. Yet the play also abounds with some of the greatest lines of Shakespeare¿s fools that cause all of us to see that humility is more called for than pride or ambition. Certainly, As You Like It will make you feel the presence of an unmatched genius, that should inspire even the most arrogant to feel humbled in the Bard¿s presence. My recommendation is that you first see a performance (whether in person, or on a recording). If that¿s not possible, try for an audio. Many outstanding actors have been taped. After you have the sights and sounds of the play firmly in mind, then read the play. You¿ll find that your earlier experiences will unlock more of the play¿s depths, imagery and pleasures for you. Where in life is being true to your word very important? How can you improve your life by being more reliable in this way?

ABDO's Magic Wagon "Graphic Shakespeare" series offers a short brief look at 16 plays by the Bard. This title is included in set 2. Bright yellows and greensshowcase the female leads in the play while dark browns set apart the men. A page of text about the play complements the illustratons and a glossary is included. Useful as an introductory text. Thanks to Puget Sound Council for the review copy.
