All the world's a stage.... In the enchanted forest of Arden, everyone has their way. Sins are forgiven, quarrels are resolved, and love rules over all. And - just as the author liked it - the frolic of clowns and comedy includes provocative insight into nature versus society and into humanity itself. Follow Orlando, Celia, Rosalind, and Touchstone the Clown from court to forest in this play that features disguised princesses, an unjustly deposed ruler, and a handsome leading couple. Actors Vanessa Redgrave (Rosalind) and Keith Michell (Orlando) head the cast of celebrity performers in this Shakespearean romp of mischief, intrigue, and surprise. Download and start listening now!

    " Was actually funny, well, as funny as Shakespeare can get. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bertie_wooster | 2/15/2014

    " This is one beautiful comedy complete with witty repartee, philosophy and silly romance. I completely enjoyed reading it, and found out that I can actually understand the prose much better now than in school. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lia | 2/13/2014

    " A fun comedy, but not the greatest. Not all of Shakespeare's comedies are created equal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/8/2014

    " Loved it! Definitely an interesting ride and play to read for a class! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelby | 1/22/2014

    " I could read this, one hundred times over and never grow weary. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 1/14/2014

    " It's funny how most of the villainous characters by a stroke of fortune always repent their evil ways and turn into god-fearing men. Oh Shakespeare, you. Ah well, happy endings galore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alusha | 12/25/2013

    " A nice and funny play by Shakespeare, I recommend this book to anyone who loves Shakespeare's work "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maxine | 12/20/2013

    " People falling in love, cross-dressing in the woods, crazy coincidences, and happily ever after in the end. It's like A Midsummer Night's Dream, but not interesting or magical. In real life, women cannot woo men and win them over. Didn't Shakespeare read "He's Just Not That Into You?" What, if any message, is to be taken from this play? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanairis | 12/20/2013

    " I reccommend this book for every one to read because it's really romantic & really sad at some points of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sara Snarr | 12/18/2013

    " I love ALL of Shakespear's commedies! But I don't have the patience to wade through his tragedies. Plus, the film makes it so much more fun. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xiao | 12/9/2013

    " Love the story. Very funny. There was also a comic book version. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariel | 11/11/2013

    " One of Shakespeare's weird gender-swap, sort of accidentally homo-erotic comedies. Slightly more problematic than Twelfth Night but less so than the problem plays. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Madeline Benoit | 11/10/2013

    " One of Willy's best. Humorous and powerful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Asyoulikeit | 10/13/2013

    " yeah, i know..but you did 'see' the ending, right? 7/10 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 3/25/2012

    " Shakespeare is much better when you read it. At least for me. It gives me time to digest the weird old English. But this comedy play is a bit too silly for me. Still there are some interesting parts to make it worth while. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adelaide | 2/6/2012

    " If only all bad rulers would suddenly decide to enter monasteries. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 April | 1/30/2012

    " My favorite Shakespeare play! Love Love Love it! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jed | 1/4/2012

    " This is romantic "comedy" written by Shakespeare is another classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alyson | 1/3/2012

    " Definitely one of my favorite Shakespeare works. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 4/27/2011

    " One of my Shakespeare favorites...light and comical! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Williams | 12/23/2009

    " Not my favorite. The female liberation is an excellent area to critically focus on, however, nothing really happens. I was bored. Though this probably one of Shakespeare's sweeter stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sophie Murray-Morris | 8/21/2009

    " One of my favourite Shakespeare plays so far. Funny and entertaining. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathryn | 5/3/2009

    " These were the first four Shakespeare plays I ever read, thanks to an old edition of this book (or a similar collection of the same plays) on my parents' bookshelf. I always wanted to play Rosalind, Titania, and Viola! "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
