As You Like It | William Shakespeare

I‘ve been sick with a persistent cough 😩

Since it had been awhile since I last read Shakespeare and I love listening to productions of plays on Hoopla, I decided to do an immersion read of As You Like It and it was such an enjoyable experience. There were lots of songs in this one, so hearing them sung was 👩🏻‍🍳😘
Not my favorite Shakespearean play, but still fun!

My third and final #roll100 for April!

What is your favorite Shakespearean insult?

Mine is from “As You Like It” — my all-time favorite work by Shakespeare: “I do desire we may be better strangers.”

(Oops, forgot to review this here!) definitely enjoyed this, tho it‘s not without its flaws. I feel like it‘s almost a dramedy rather than comedy, there‘s some heavy stuff in here alongside the lighter things like the clown scenes, the lovers‘ laments, ladies-dressed-as-men trope. Also another one with just a bit too much crammed into a short play. Could‘ve done w/o one or two little side arcs. But still great & a quick, mostly light read. 4/5 ⭐️

This wide and universal theater
Presents more woeful pageants than the scene

Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.

According to my Goodreads, I read this one at some long ago point in my life, because I had it on my vague “read before 2011” shelf (2011 being the year I started using Goodreads in earnest), but I have no memory of it at all. So technically a reread but one that‘ll feel new. 👌🏻🎭 #nowreading

Our first Shakespeare in the Park performance of the summer: As You Like It! Pretty nice evening, and hopefully it'll cool off even more once the sun goes down.

We just closed the Young Acting Company's production of this show. It was an original edit done by our director and it was amazing. These kids were able to do Shakespeare better than some adults I have seen. I am so proud of them all for the work they did to get here. Also, we actually had the little ones on stage as goats. I never want to see this done without that again. It was brilliant and one of my favorite scenes.

I don't mind telling you, Prescot (near Liverpool) was an absolute dump when I was growing up here in the 80s and 90s. Mass unemployment and a huge derelict factory in the 80s, and all the pubs were scruffy and full of Carling-fuelled scallies when I started drinking in the 90s. Now they're building a Shakespeare theatre here and there's a Shakespeare themed micropub called the Bard. Exciting times.

Ranchan @merelybookish Shakespeare is barely taught in the Netherlands, apart from English degrees at uni, so not many used editions can be found unforunately. If they're not too heavy, a copy of As You Like It ir All's Well would be wonderful! 😍 5y

The Arkangel audio production was fantastic, particularly the music, and now I‘m going to celebrate Shakespeare‘s sort-of birthday by watching this awesome adaptation directed by Kenneth Branagh and set in feudal Japan.

Fans of the play should check this out if they haven‘t.

Playing catch up today before beginning Othello. Act III was my favorite so far—the wordplay was phenomenal. Shakespeare was such a trippy dude, and I‘ll never understand his predilection for using cross-dressing to forward a plot 😂

Also: “The oath of a lover is no stronger than the word of a tapster; they are both the confirmer of false reckonings.”

#Shakespearereadalong

readinginthedark I think the cross dressing was funnier at the time, because you had a man playing a woman playing a man. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5y

I enjoyed this little romp in the woods despite the problematic gender politics. You get the sense that all's well that ends well = order restored, i.e. women back in their appointed place. But there was that silly, satirical tone throughout that I relished. It's like a "beach read" Shakespeare; the pages just flew by. The dynamic between Rosalind & Celia was fab. I love me a moody, do-nothing philosopher, so I do have a soft spot for Jaques ?

🎭Act 5 and the conclusion of As You Like It🎭

📜Act 4 had a snake and lion. Act 5 brings us Hymen, the god of marriage, to bless the union of the four couples who were brought together in a varied series of events that deviated from normal courtship. The Duke Senior is restored. And I have the song lyric “with a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonny-no” stuck in my head.

#ShakespeareReadAlong folks- your thoughts on Act 5 or the play in entirety?

Jess_Read_This 🎭Spoileresque Comments Below🎭 5y
Jess_Read_This Overall: I‘m a bit torn. This was not my favorite play so far, yet there were some beautifully written lines in it. I feel like this was a hodge podge of plot elements thrown together and rapidly wrapped up with a bow... a song.. and a Roman god. But I wonder if all the plot elements were Will‘s way of testing the waters to see what worked well and what didn‘t with audiences? 5y
Jess_Read_This Act 5: I was a bit surprised at the strength of Touchstone‘s attack on Audrey‘s country admirer. I felt bad for poor Phoebe at getting tricked into marrying Silvius- not cool, R...not cool. I kind of felt R was too heavy handed in her directing of all the players and the big reveal was “meh” in dramatics. The Duke Senior and Orlando commenting on the similarity between G and R equaled what big hard eye roll for me. 5y
See All 29 Comments
Jess_Read_This However, I enjoyed the pastoral scene, the song lyrics, and overall, there were some great quotes in this play. My favorites were highlighted in a playbill pictured above from a Milwaukee theater company. 5y
GingerAntics Usually, I‘m a sucker for a happy ending, but I think the only reason I‘m a fan of this play at all is because I like Shakespeare that much. It‘s just not my cup of tea. It seemed like the deposed King just magically became king again at the end. What was his actual role throughout the play? The characters I liked at the beginning, I didn‘t like in the middle, and they never redeemed themselves by the end. Eh. Just not my favourite by a landslide. 5y
GingerAntics I‘m kind of disappointed. 5y
Erin7 I agree that there were some great quotes in this play. I felt sorry for S actually. To have it kind of thrown in his face that P was settling for him felt sad and makes me wonder what the rest of their story together would have been like. I feel like there was some choppiness to the storyline. But I think the lyric quality to R‘s ensuring that everyone would hold true to their promises of partner commitments at the end was fun for me. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Erin7 I have to agree with you. I disliked that part, but liked R‘s resolution at the ending. As an adult, the Duke who becomes King, but can‘t recognize his OWN daughter in disguise is very sad. But I have to say that I wish this is one we‘d have read in HS or Middle School before say Romeo and Juliet or Julius Cesar...it‘s a bit more fun & frivolous and I bet I would have enjoyed the goofiness more than, & definitely more than the tragedies.. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...at that age. 5y
Jess_Read_This @GingerAntics I‘m kind of disappointed as well. I was expecting it get better and as we read each act.. it didn‘t. I love a happy ending too but I think I was irked enough by the characters to not have a strong investment in their happy ending. 5y
Jess_Read_This @Erin7 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I am bit confused why he added the Silvius and Phoebe storyline. It just feels so wrong for both parties and I didn‘t see how it helped the plot along really. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Jess_Read_This Same with Audrey...I think they were all story fillers and comic relief. I wish we actually knew more about the order they were written, if I had to randomly guess, because really nobody knows, I‘d guess it‘s an earlier work. It‘s not as streamlined, and all the characters aren‘t as important to the main story, etc. 5y
GingerAntics @Jess_Read_This exactly! That is the perfect way to put it. 5y
Erin7 @Jess_Read_This my theory is that Shakespeare was trying to add a twist to the love story. Maybe he thought the cross dressed woman help the man she loves to woo her in her true form was not enough. There would be more comedy to another woman chasing her while she helps him chase her. I think it all boiled down to bringing it around to being able to do those chain sequence lines at the end. 5y
Jess_Read_This @Erin7 I think you completely nailed it. That makes a lot of sense. 5y
Jess_Read_This @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I think I read somewhere that it was an earlier work. I think that‘s why I thought maybe he was experimenting with different plot elements 5y
Lcsmcat I agree with @Erin7 , and I think, while they are all better viewed staged rather than read, this one particularly needs to be acted to work. 5y
readinginthedark @Lcsmcat That‘s exactly what I was thinking! With the others we‘ve read, I enjoyed reading the play in a different way; I was able to catch things I wouldn‘t have in a performance. Not so much with this one. I‘ve always loved watching it, so I expected to love reading it! But it fell short for me. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5y
readinginthedark @Riveted_Reader_Melissa @GingerAntics @Jess_Read_This It makes sense that the Duke wouldn‘t recognize Rosalind, since he hasn‘t seen her for fourteen years or something. But the comment about Ganymede looking like her took it a little far. I think his role in the play had less to do with R and more to do with redemption (of the Duke‘s brother and Oliver) and restoring “good” people to their rightful places. 5y
GingerAntics @readinginthedark that‘s a good point...from that POV his role in the play makes far more sense. Yeah, I‘m going with your theory. 5y
merelybookish This was my first Shakespeare play. I read it in Grade 10 and remember enjoying it @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I do think the lovesick silliness is a good Shakespeare intro. I enjoyed re-reading it. I like that Rosalind is in control of a lot of the plot. And I like that a female friendship features so promiently. There are lots of convenient (questionable) plot developments but I enjoyed this lark in Arden forest. 5y
TheBookHippie @Jess_Read_This I'm torn as well some of the passages of words just gorgeous but some of the plot line seemed like he was trying 10 scenarios at once. However the POV and a strong women is wonderful. 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @merelybookish Exactly! When I was in school we read all the tragedies. I didn‘t even really get that he wrote comedies until college. Yes, there were weird plot loops and odd character choices, but it was fun and silly, everyone turns out good, for the better, and happily every after seems like just the kind of play I would have loved and found clever and funny as a young person. The girls wit, the teaching him how to woo her (as him)... (edited) 5y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ...tricking everyone in the logic chain into marrying the ‘right‘ person for them. As a 9th grader I think I‘d have found it funny and clever, and not even thought the side characters wandering out of the forest at all odd, but just them meeting the local inhabitants. I thought it was fun now, and I‘m sure I‘d have loved it even more then. (edited) 5y
JennAndrew @Jess_Read_This @readinginthedark I‘m late to the party this week, sorry! I got the Charles Boyce Shakespeare A-Z this week though, so that was great! In the AYLI bit it suggests this is a play without a plot so much as opportunities for clever wordplay, & I think that sums it up for me. I didn‘t care for most of the characters & found the group marriage a weak ending, especially as I did not support some of the pairings. However, there was some.. 5y
JennAndrew Delightful dialogue and witty repartee, so I think that was the most enjoyable part for me. The A-Z suggests Silvius & Phoebe were standard pastoral characters- the ‘sentimental shepherd & hard-hearted shepherdess‘, however, I‘d have been happier to see Phebe & Audrey bunk off together at the end, ditching those useless dudes. Either for amazing adventures or maybe to marry each other, who knows?! I just felt it would be awful to marry a man as... 5y
JennAndrew Critical as Touchstone was of Audrey, or to settle for a man you actively tried to shun for years, like S & P. How depressing! I saw this on stage when I was younger & loved it- the forest, with love poems hanging from the branches- was dreamy & enchanting, it was funny & had more than just talking, but as an adult I‘ve found it a bit empty. I know Shakespeare can give so much more, so this was a So-So for me. 5y
batsy My thoughts summed up: what @merelybookish said 😆 It felt very light, even flimsy where plot was concerned, but I did love the banter and the philosophical musings of forest vs. court. Seems to be that human corruption will taint even the most Edenic of places? 🤔😬 5y
Jess_Read_This @JennAndrew I never considered the idea that this is a play without a plot and to focus on the wordplay. That kind of relaxes me a bit in my expectations, I guess? I‘d like to see Phoebe and Audrey take off together on an adventure too! 5y

I finished reading this yesterday on the Chunnel to Paris. I thought it was a clever ending though I had read it before a few times. I liked Touchstone better in this Act. It seemed he was back to being a little more witty than jerkish. #ShakespeareReadalong @readinginthedark @Jess_Read_This

readinginthedark Touchstone was definitely better in this Act! I still have one or two scenes to go. This play isn‘t quite how I remembered it. 5y

Mehso-so

As Shakespeare goes it‘s okay. It had some memorable parts, but characters I liked at the beginning I didn‘t by the middle. Characters I didn‘t like at the beginning never got any better. By the end *some* of the characters redeemed themselves *sort of.* I think if it wasn‘t Shakespeare I probably wouldn‘t even give it as high a rating as I‘ve given it. It‘s definitely not my favourite Shakespeare play.
2.5/5 🌟🌟⭐️
