As You Like It - Continuation
Eclogues -> advice on how to manage emotions that cannot be managed
Themes of brothers and its biblical references
Forest becomes a place of redemption -> washes away sins through forgiveness and
love
Act 5 – As You like it (Redemption turns around)
Because Rosalind takes on a disguise, the wrong people fall in love with the wrong
people
The only way this can be done is by Rosalind exposing herself as a woman; people’s
problems will go away
Decorum -> sense of appropriateness (e.g. if you have servants, villains, their
language is of the lowest)
Speech/language tells a lot about who we are -> readability
Orlando -> chooses poetry to express himself (poetry is the language of love)
-Phoebe is a miniature Rosalind (Act 3 S 5)
-Silvius is wooing Phoebe
Recurring theme: love as a form of abuse (people who fall in love do it to
themselves and are screwed over by other people too; you make a fool of yourself
and keep coming back) Act 3 Scene 5 line 1820; Rosalind talking to Silvius about
Phoebe
Love as a victim (theme for essay)
“Sell while you can; you are not for all markets” 1833 -> shows women as a
commodity (this line shows that for the first time, people are starting to understand
that marriage/love are economic negotiations) -> marriage becomes a financial
transaction (theme-> love as a financial transaction)
Act 5 Scene 4
If -> telling a lie without telling a lie (line 2665)
Rosalind’s final speech -> 2780 (is the play saying that Rosalind giving up her power
is a good thing or a bad thing?) *Patriarchy
