Written to complement the Globe Theatre's production of 'As You Like It', this work allows the reader to understand the philosophical and spiritual traditions of Shakespeare's age. As well as placing the play in context, the author shows how the main plot of the play develops and how it relates to the three sub-plots and the three supporting plots as well as to the background plot of the two brother dukes. The reader is shown how themes within the play relate to philosophical traditions dating back to the Ancient Greeks. These traditions are shown to be at the heart of any understanding of 'As You Like It' and by looking in detail at them the book provides new insights for both audiences and actors alike.
