Manga Shakespeare As You Like It, Paperback Book

Manga Shakespeare As You Like It Paperback

Description

As You Like It is perhaps Shakepeare's sunniest comedy, but there are patches of shade amidst the love-drenched brightness.

Political corruption, fraternal rivalry and melancholy all serve as thematic counterpoints to Shakespeare's investigation of how release from the constraints of court, city, and even gender can permit a profound development of the self.

In this manga, the Arcadian beauty of the forest of Arden is transposed to modern-day China, where rural and urban worlds collide.

Part of a series of graphic novel adaptations of the great Bard's plays.
