A favourite with audiences, As You Like It has not always gained the approval of critics. Yet with a little effort, students of the play - by understanding some of the historical and literary context in which it was written and performed - can come upon real treasures and more fully enjoy Shakespeare's gentle send-up of the conventions of Pastoral and Petrarchan love poetry, and the infusion of melancholy into Elizabethan life and literature. Matt Simpson's aim is to elucidate some of these matters so that the play can be appreciated for what it is - a witty, living and breathing romantic comedy.
