This new edition of As You Like It is part of the established Cambridge School Shakespeare series and has been substantially updated with new and revised activities throughout. Remaining faithful to the series' active approach it treats the play as a script to be acted, explored and enjoyed. As well as the complete script of As You Like It, you will find a variety of classroom-tested activities, an eight-page colour section and an enlarged selection of notes including information on characters, performance, history and language.

About the Author

William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born in Stratford-upon-Avon where his father was a prosperous glover. His early life is obscure, but he married Anne Hathaway in 1682 with whom he had two children. By 1592 he was establishing himself in London, and over the next twenty years he wrote thirty-seven plays-and contributed to many more-was a prolific poet, and was taken up by several influential patrons. His Sonnets were first printed in 1609 by George Eld for Thomas Thorpe. The identity of Mr. W.H. to whom the Sonnets are dedicated remains a mystery, as does the identity of the aristocratic youth in the Sonnets and the enigmatic Dark Lady.

    Comments about As You Like It:

    This book was excellent value and just what I needed to replace the rather dilapidated books in the book room. Now this play has been removed from the HSC prescriptions list after the current year, it becomes a very good choice for Year 11's study of Shakespeare. This particular edition is well set out and easy for the students to access. The numerous photographs from a variety of productions provide material for lively discussions on context and the intent of the director in each case.
