IN LANGUAGE EVERYONE CAN UNDERSTAND
Shakespeare's delightful comedy about the banished princess who falls in love at first sight with a poor but brave young man unfolds in easy-to-follow English as we speak it today. Follow witty Rosalind as she and her loyal cousin Celia, disguised as a poor shepherd lad and his sister, run away to Arden Forest to escape the threats of Rosalind's wicked uncle. Accompanied by the bawdy jester Touchstone, they meet the melancholy Jacques, the lovesick Silvius, the scornful Phebe, and other colorful characters. Rosalind's encounter with the brave Orlando is only one of several love stories that grace this cleverly plotted play.
The complete original text is laid out side-by-side with the full modern translation. Shakespeare Made Easy titles are ideal for quick reference and understanding, whether you are reading Shakespeare for pleasure or studying for an exam.
