This edition of As You Like It reprints the Bevington edition of the play accompanied by four sets of thematically arranged primary documents and illustrations. Including pastoral poetry, ballads, diatribes, jest books, tracts, emblems, maps, and woodcuts, the documents contextualize pastoral conventions; hetero- and homoerotic desire; cross-dressing by boy players; the meanings of ganymede, folly, and fools; censorship and the risks of satire; and debates about gentility, manners, and education.
