As You Like It
WORDSWORTH
As You Like It


As You Like It is one of Shakespeare\'s finest romantic comedies, variously lyrical, melancholy, satiric, comic and absurd. Its boldly implausible plot generates a profusion of love-lorn men, a resourceful heroine in disguise, sexual ambiguity, sceptical philosophising, and finally a multiplicity of marriages.

The ironic medley of pastoral artifice, romantic ardour and quizzical reflection has helped to make As You Like It perennially popular in the theatre. A recent production was deemed \'fresh, funny, sexy and, when it matters, deeply touching\'.

As You Like It is part of the Wordsworth Classics\' Shakespeare Series, used in the workshops of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Every volume in the series has been newly edited by Cedric Watts, described by Edward Said as \'a man for whom the.

Red Badge of Courage


The Red Badge of Courage is one of the greatest war novels of all time. It reports on the American Civil War through the eyes of Henry Fleming, an ordinary farm boy turned soldier.

It evokes the chaos and the dull clatter of war: the acrid smoke, the incessant rumours of coming battles, the filth and cold, the numbing monotony, the unworldly wailing of the dying. Like an impressionist painter, Crane also captures the strange beauty of war: the brilliant red flags against a blue sky, steel bayonets flashing in the morning sun as soldiers step off into battle.

In the midst of this chaotic outer world, he creates an intricate inner world as he takes us inside the head of Henry Fleming. Stephen Crane is now recognised as one of a handful of daring innovators who helped shape modern American.

Ulysses


Ulysses is a snapshot of one day\'s life. Ulysses has been labeled dirty, blasphemous, and unreadable.

It is funny, sorrowful, and even suspenseful. And despite the exegetical industry that has sprung up in the last 75 years, Ulysses is also a compulsively readable book.

The stories are illustrated by the remarkable Sydney Paget from whom our images of Sherlock Holmes and his world derive and who first equipped Holmes with his famous deerstalker hat.
