A Guide to As You Like It (The Shakespeare Handbooks)
Alistair McCallum (Author)

The Shakespeare Handbooks provide a helpful, straightforward guide to the work of the world’s most celebrated dramatist. Along with a clear, easy-to-follow description of the plot, each book contains plenty of quotations from the text – with simple explanations of any unfamiliar words and phrases – and some thought-provoking comments from critics, past and present.

The Shakespeare Handbooks include a few intriguing Shakespearean facts and figures, too. How old was Shakespeare when he wrote As You Like It? Which character is he thought to have played in his own comedy? Where is the Forest of Arden? What – and when – is ‘the only pretty ring-time’? And who is the stranger carrying a bloodstained handkerchief?

The Shakespeare Handbooks provide the perfect introduction. They’re ideal for students, theatregoers – in fact, anyone curious to know more about the greatest plays in the English language.

These are a few of the appreciative comments about the Shakespeare Handbooks:
'Tremendously useful in helping to understand Shakespeare’s works' – Dame Judi Dench. 'Very readable, very helpful'– Kenneth Branagh. 'The Shakespeare Handbooks open the plays up admirably. Excellent for all levels of reader – everybody will get something from them.'– Simon Callow.
