Summary:

Histoire de haine, puis histoire d’amour sur fond de pastorale, « As You Like It » est une comédie des contraires. Contraires d’abord séparés, selon les oppositions traditionnelles du monde vert et de la Cour, de la nature et de la culture, de la mélancolie et de l’amour, puis contraires subtilement rapprochés par une construction en catoptrique qui superpose les personnages et tisse entre eux des jeux de reflets, enfin contraires réunifiés dans la totalité androgynique de l’échange amoureux. « As You Like It » tient à la fois du mythe et de sa mise à distance, de l’artifice théâtral et du discours sur le réel et articule une dialectique du même et du différent. Au cœur de ces paradoxes, le Fou, Touchstone, pierre angulaire et miroir de tout l’édifice, dont l’esprit railleur et la langue ambivalente introduisent une géométrie de la perspective qui multiplie les images en les diffractant et conduit à des retournements et des inversions du sens. Comme toutes les pièces de Shakespeare, « As You Like It » refuse l’univocité d’un sens unique et totalisant, et s’offre plutôt comme l’expression d’une esthétique du renversement. C’est ainsi qu’« As You Like It » présente, en les soumettant au regard critique, les grands discours de son époque sur la pastorale, l’identité, l’amour, le temps ou encore le langage. La pièce condense et revisite à la fois l’épistémè de la Renaissance, tout en se démarquant des conceptions traditionnelles du théâtre mimétique pour proposer, par le truchement d’une revendication de l’artifice, de nous faire regarder le monde autrement. Car « As You Like It », qui est à prendre comme il nous plaira, est aussi une école du regard distancié.

Summary:

A pastoral comedy written by William Shakespeare, As You Like It is regarded as one of his greatest comedies for more than four centuries now. The play is set up mostly in the Forest of Arden, and it narrates the story of Rosalind and Celia's experiences with disguises and desires. While the readers also remain engaged with the issues of primogeniture and exile informing the tensions between the two sets of brothers Oliver-Orlando and Duke Senior (Ferdinand)-Duke Frederick, respectively, the play’s true captivating nature is lent by characters like Audrey, Silvius, Phoebe and Adam, who come from the lower social strata. The play ends on a note of forgiveness, reunion and understanding. The analysis of ‘The idea of the pastoral’ and ‘The operations of gender’, both the primary subjects of criticism, have been given a special focus in the two extremely informative critical essays included at the end of the book. Key Features • Fully-annotated text explained in an easy-to-understand language. • Detailed introduction to the play encourages readers to critically examine the background and the various aspects of the play. • Act-wise Summary given at the end of each Act.

Summary:

The Arden Shakespeare, in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, presents a new series of volumes on Shakespeare's plays in performance. The series discusses and analyses the wide range of theatrical interpretation stimulated and provoked by the most frequently performed plays. Each volume explores how different directors, designers and actors have interpreted and adapted an individual play in terms of narrative focus, themes and characters, scenery and costume. The focus is on productions at Stratford-upon-Avon since 1945, on the basis that the record of Shakespeare performances at Stratford's theatres offers a wider, fuller and more various range of interpretation than is offered by any other theatre company. The volumes also set this record in a wider geographical and chronological context by means of a historical overview of earlier productions and of productions beyond Stratford. Published in conjunction with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, each volume features a wealth of photographs (many of them not previously seen in print) drawn from the archive of RSC performance materials held in the Trust's library at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford. Shakespeare at Stratford will surprise, inform and delight both students and scholars of Shakespeare and performance history and the general reader with an interest in theatre.

Summary:

Comprend 21 illustrations - 51 notes de bas de page - Environ 195 pages au format Ebook. Sommaire interactif avec hyperliens. Cette comédie est vraiment l'œuvre de Shakespeare et aussi le produit pur de sa pensée : on y trouve la sensualité des Gentilhommes de Vérone, les trahisons entre frères, flambeaux de Hamlet ou de La Tempête, la gaieté des Joyeuses commères de Windsor et la fin enchanteresse de La Nuit des rois. Les deux premiers actes sont les plus intéressants. La suite est surtout constituée de marivaudage. Les rivalités fraternelles sont encore une fois le sel et l'aliment de l'intrigue. Ainsi, Olivier nourrit une haine farouche contre Orlando. Le roi Frédérick renverse son propre frère, le Duc, banni et retiré avec quelques compagnons dans la forêt. Le choix d'Orlando de combattre le chevalier Charles à la joute, malgré son inexpérience et les nombreuses victoires de l'adversaire, ne manque pas de rappeler la décision d'Hamlet d'accepter le duel truqué avec Laërte, risquant ainsi ses espoirs de vengeance. L'irréversibilité et la providence se retrouvent ainsi. Ce qui ressemble par moment à une comédie frivole et légère contient également de grands doutes et de grands tourments.

Summary:

This book examines the modern performance history of one of Shakespeare's best-loved and most enduring comedies, and one that has given opportunities for generations of theatre-makers and theatre-goers to explore the pleasures of pastoral, gender masquerade and sexual ambiguity. Powered by Shakespeare's greatest female comic role, the play invites us into a deeply English woodland that has also been richly imagined as a space of dreams. The study retrieves the untold stories of stage productions in Britain, France and Germany, which include Royal Shakespeare Company productions starring Vanessa Redgrave, Eileen Atkins and Juliet Stevenson, the ground-breaking all-male productions at the National Theatre in 1967 and by Cheek by Jowl in 1992, and the versions directed by Jacques Copeau in Paris in 1934, and by Peter Stein in Berlin in 1977. It also addresses the four major screen versions of the play, ranging from Paul Czinner's 1936 film to Kenneth Branagh's seventy years later.
