As You Like It, Paperback / softback Book

As You Like It Paperback / softback

Edited by Michael (University of Sheffield) Hattaway

Part of the The New Cambridge Shakespeare series

Paperback / softback

Description

The New Cambridge Shakespeare appeals to students worldwide for its up-to-date scholarship and emphasis on performance.

The series features line-by-line commentaries and textual notes on the plays and poems.

Introductions are regularly refreshed with accounts of new critical, stage and screen interpretations.

In his Introduction to this second edition of As You Like It, its editor, Michael Hattaway accounts for what makes this popular play both innocent and dangerous.

In performance it can appear bright or sombre: a feast of language and a delight for comic actors, or a risk-taking exploration of gender roles.

This edition includes a new section on recent critical interpretations and dramatic productions of the play as well as an appendix on an early court performance of As You Like It in 1599.

Commentary on the play's language, an updated reading list and an account of the play in performance are also included.
