Play, parts and players

(p.9) Chapter I Play, parts and players
As You Like It

Robert Shaughnessy

Manchester University Press

Through close reading of the text of As You Like It, this chapter traces the early performance and publication history of the play, focusing in particular on the significance of the part system and its implications for the role of Rosalind. It places the play in the contexts of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men’s repertoire and of Shakespeare’s radically innovatory and high-risk playwriting practice. It also examines the use of rhetorical tools in the players’ parts.

Keywords:   Parts, Publication, Repertoire, Apprentices, Players, Lord Chamberlain’s Men, Rhetoric
