C.S. Lewis says that reading old literature is a lot like visiting a foreign country and that there are two ways to experience it. You can travel as a tourist taking in the sights, or you “can eat the local food and drink the local wines, you can share the foreign life, you can begin to see the foreign country as it looks, not to the tourist, but to its inhabitants. You can come home modified, thinking and feeling as you did not think and feel before.”
In order to help you experience Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It in that second way, Kelly Cumbee will introduce you to the metaphors and imagery that formed the landscape of the Elizabethan imagination. She will also help you recognize the structure, contents, and stock characters that an Elizabethan audience would have expected of a Comedy, and will touch on the Pastoral Romance which inspired this play.
