Review

This book is priceless to anyone going to see a Shakespeare performance for the first time or for those that are studying Shakespeare at school. Just before going to see the play I read the first section of the book that explains about the characters and the plot. I still got lost in the dialogue slightly but didn't struggle half as much as I would have if I hadn't read this first. (5 star Amazon review)

This book is priceless to anyone going to see a Shakespeare performance for the first time or for those that are studying Shakespeare at school.

I bought tickets to see 'As You Like It' and having never been to see a Shakespeare performance thought that I might get a bit lost in the dialogue between the characters. Just before going to see the play I read the first section of the book that explains about the characters and the plot. I still got lost in the dialogue slightly but didn't struggle half as much as I would have if I hadn't read this first. I couldn't wait to get home to read the actual play itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource. 12 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have purchased several of these guides in order to prepare for RSC productions and they have all served me well. They were produced for GCSE courses, and are therefore suitable for the "layperson". Each guide provides supporting background information for the relevant production. The text of the play has a clear format enabling it to be easily understood, and the explanatory notes provide further clarification. Using these texts has enhanced my enjoyment of Shakespeare productions. I intend to acquire a full set in due course.

By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
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?
