I'm working on a study of Shakespeare's As You Like It. The quotes recently posted from Arden Shakespeare on this play don't do it complete justice.
As You Will (12th Night) was written as a sequel to As You Like It, so it is important to analyze both plays. Each comments significantly on the other and contributes to our overall understanding of the Shakespeare body of work.
Surprisingly, As You Like It also offers new insights into the connection between Christian and Muslim worlds and their inter-related rulers.
