As You Like It
A New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare
Editor(s): Richard Knowles
Pages: xxviii & 737 pp.
This definitive edition of As You Like It builds on the New Variorum Edition of 1890 and contains the complete text of the play. It also presents the expanse of scholarly opinion and interpretation since the earliest commentary; covers dating, emendations, stage history, criticism, and sources; and prints the text of Thomas Lodge's Rosalynde.
Inaugurated in the 1860s and the standard reference edition of Shakespeare’s work, the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare continues the tradition of the original Variorum editions of the early nineteenth century. The New Variorum editions are valuable resources for an international audience of scholars, students, directors, actors, and general readers. Overseen by two general editors and an MLA committee, the production of each edition is conducted by a team of scholars and researchers working over a number of years.
