A remarkable pastoral comedy, William Shakespeare’s As You Like It presents the various types of love in all its splendor. Full of enchantment, vitality, peace, joy and merriment, this drama of artifice, gender reversals, exile and homoeroticism is a complete delight. It continues to remain a favorite.
