    "I'm a bit of an abstract figure that people can project their fantasies on; it's pretty much what we all are, otherwise we wouldn't be stars, and people wouldn't be interested. But people project things on you that have nothing to do with what you really are, or they see a little something and then exaggerate it. And you can't really control that."

    As You Like It

    by William Shakespeare

    Book Description

    From the Royal Shakespeare Company -- a fresh new edition of Shakespeare's journey into the Forest of Arden THIS EDITION INCLUDES: * An introduction to As You Like It by award-winning scholar Jonathan Bate * The play -- with clear and authoritative explanatory notes on each page * A helpful scene-by-scene analysis and key facts about the play * An introduction to Shakespeare's career and the Elizabethan theatre * A rich exploration of approaches to staging the play featuring photographs of key productions The most enjoyable way to understand a Shakespeare play is to see it or participate in it. This unique edition presents a historical overview of As You Like It in performance, recommends film versions, takes a detailed look at specific productions and includes interviews with two leading directors and a well-known Shakespearean actor - Dominic Cooke, Michael Boyd and Naomi Frederick - so that we may get a sense of the extraordinary variety of interpretations that are possible, a variety that gives Shakespeare his unique capacity to be reinvented and made 'our contemporary' four centuries after his death.
