As You Like It

We that are true lovers run into strange capers.

When it comes to her relationship with her own destiny, Rosalind wears the pants. The heroine of As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most celebrated characters, a young woman who, when exiled from court by a suspicious uncle, fully embraces her independence. While plenty of the bard’s works feature a woman dressing as a man, often to great comedic effect, Rosalind’s disguise makes for one of the most powerful transfigurations, bringing out an inner strength, courage, and forthrightness. As her male alter ego Ganymede, she not only protects her cousin—who keeps her skirts on as they flee—but seizes control of her own fate in a manner typically associated with our male heroes. In the forest, she shames fools, chastises the flighty, philosophizes with the best of them, and even dictates the terms of her own courtship—all without the suffocating confines of a corset.

A flurry of romances—of both Rosalind and other players—make up the meat of As You Like It, and the play is rightly celebrated for its delightful array of twists and turns. But it also contains one of Shakespeare’s most poignant speeches, and it’s one Rosalind isn’t even around to hear. When Jaques, a melancholy nobleman in service of Rosalind’s exiled father, laments that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players,” the lighthearted canopy of the Forest of Arden begins to sag with the weight of humanity. In the end of our lives, we enter “mere oblivion, / Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.” It’s evidence that Shakespeare believed his play, like his heroine, to be much more than how it appears on the surface.
