Rosalind, the daughter of an unjustly exiled duke, falls in love with the wronged Orlando, a courtier deprived of his birthright by his brother. But her usurping uncle, jealous of Rosalind’s popularity with the people, banishes her from the court. Disguised as a boy and accompanied by her cousin Celia, she seeks out her father and his friends in the Forest of Arden. There she meets Orlando again and, under the guise of a young man, counsels him in the art of love.
A firm favorite among Shakespeare’s comedies, and featuring some of his best-loved characters, As You Like It runs the glorious gamut of pastoral romance: cross-dressing and brilliant conversation, gentle satire, forgiveness, and reparation.
