“As You Like It” By William Shakespeare Review

Rosalind and her cousin escape into the forest and find Orlando, Rosalind’s love. Disguised as a boy shepherd, Rosalind has Orlando woo her under the guise of “curing” him of his love for Rosalind. Rosalind reveals she is a girl and marries Orlando during a group wedding at the end of the play.

This play as many other plays by William Shakespeare just didn’t work for me. Once again it might be me being very picky on what I like and don’t like or the fact that I don’t like plays. 

The plot of this play was very William Shakespeare type and you just could tell it was written by no other than William Shakespeare. The plot was super boring and uninteresting and it was super painful for me to read it. Because of this it ended up with me DNF-ing it.

The characters her were super bad and they really made me want to stab myself because I just couldn’t tolerate them. They felt like comically bad characters. 

The writing style here was okay. To be honest it was the best thing in this play which of course is too little for me to give it a good rating. 

I Give Play 1 / 5
