From the Back Cover:

Both a witty satire of literary cliche and a tender meditation on the varieties of love, As You Like It continues to be one of Shakespeare's most beloved and widely performed comedies. In the introduction to this new edition, David Bevington traces the complex relationships between the characters in the play, and explores the history of its criticism from Samuel Johnson to the twenty-first century.Illustrations and extended discussions of myth and folklore alluded to in the play are interleaved with the text, and appendices provide excerpts from key sources for the play.

About the Author:

William Shakespeare is widely regarded as the greatest playwright the world has seen. He produced an astonishing amount of work; 37 plays, 154 sonnets, and 5 poems. He died on 23rd April 1616, aged 52, and was buried in the Holy Trinity Church, Stratford.
