As you Like It
The Garden/forest represents the Prelapsarian state (human existence before Adam
and Eve get kicked out; innocence)
-In the Prelapsarian world, redemption is possible
Eden – setting
Psychological Interiority
Pastoral – poetry, drama, fiction, prose (pastoral is idyllic; a lie about what the
country is like)
Trope – repeated convention that happens over and over again in literature
(something that happens in literature that is common e.g. love story)
One of the Trope’s for pastoral is how there is an Old and Young shepherd (one is
blinded by love for a country girl and the other shepherd tries to teach the younger
one not to) *Rosalind does the same in the play
-Men and Women are socialized into masculine and feminine sides
-The story of Rosalind (a girl playing a boy) is dressing up as a man and going into
the world of masculinity
-At one point, she can’t play the masculine part (turning point)
Freud says -> we all have a shadow (a dark side) but we choose to show/hide it; Carl
Jung says we have to go deeper than that and there is a gender side to our shadow
The anima -> the feminine side of a male
The animus -> the masculine side of the female
-Every woman has masculine traits and vice versa
*We repress these characteristics of the opposite sex
*Everyone creates the illusion of your own gender (like creating the illusion of
masculinity and femininity)
*Men and women are the same but we repress certain things e.g. some men repress
their emotional side because it’s “too feminine”
*This play shows these ideas
