As You Like It Reviews
I want to read more Shakespeare's but didn't know where to start so I bought the kids versions of his works. They are easy to understand and have some nice illustrations to look at, plus the covers are in my opinion so cute. I found As You Like It really quite enjoyable, I will definitely be picking up the original.
'' All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players''
A quick and easy plot introduction for children!
I went to see a couple of Shakespeare plays the other month at the theatre performed by the theatrical group 'Propellor' and I really enjoyed them - especially since I hated Shakespeare at school and even at university didn't understand why I needed to study him. Anyway I found these books in a cupboard at school and although they are only the children's version of his plays I thought I would give them a go ... and I am finding I am enjoying them. The illustrations and language (not Shakespearian) will make it appeal to more people.Although I had heard of this play, as I have of many others, I did not know much about it. Orlando is forced to flee his home and wander around the world. On his travels he meets and falls in love with Rosalind, who is also exiled from her uncle's home. There are many scenes then in the forest where magical events occur and in the end they all live happily ever after.
“All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages.”
The retold version of William Shakespeare's play with illustrations, is good for the students to get acquainted with the Shakespeare literature.
Really enjoyed this! I've never heard this play before it made me smile, I'm enjoying Shakespeare !
