Shakespeare, William. As You Like It. Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, 1998. Print.

William Shakespeare’s As You Like It, tells a story about Rosalind and her cousin Celia’s adventure through the forest of Arden. Rosalind’s uncle, Duke Frederick, invites Oliver and his company to see a wrestling match in his castle. Oliver brings his brother, Orlando, who wrestles one of Duke Frederick’s wrestlers and wins. There, Orlando meets Rosalind and the two fall in love, but Oliver attempts to assassinate Orlando that night and Orlando has to flee to the forest of Arden with a servant. Meanwhile, Duke Frederick demands Rosalind leave his castle or face death, so Rosalind, Celia, and a clown named Touchstone flee to the forest of Arden in disguise. Rosalind and Celia dress as Ganymede and Aliena, a man and a shepherdess. In the forest of Arden, Orlando meets Duke Senior, hiding from his usurping brother, and eats with him. Rosalind and company meet Silvius, a shepherd who is helplessly in love with Phebe, a disdainful shepherdess who falls for Ganymede (Rosalind) when he (she) tells Phebe that she is acting very rudely towards a man who clearly loves her (Silvius). Rosalind later meets Orlando and persuades him to charm herself as Ganymede, telling Orlando that she can cure him of his lovesickness for Rosalind. Rosalind falls for Orlando even more from his charms, but Orlando’s brother Oliver comes to kill Orlando since Duke Frederick thinks that Orlando left his castle with Celia and Rosalind. Orlando saves Oliver from a lion, and Oliver falls for Celia. Rosalind then tells Phebe that if Ganymede cannot marry her (Phebe) that she should marry Silvius and that Oliver should marry Aliena and that Orlando will have Rosalind for himself at a wedding the next day. Everyone shows up, excluding Duke Frederick, and sees all the couples married, including Touchstone and a shepherdess named Audrey. The wedding reception is then interrupted with...
