Author: Chie Kutsuwada, William Shakespeare

As You Like It is perhaps Shakepeare's sunniest comedy, but there are patches of shade amidst the love-drenched brightness. Political corruption, fraternal rivalry and melancholy all serve as thematic counterpoints to Shakespeare's investigation of how release from the constraints of court, city, and even gender can permit a profound development of the self. In this manga, the Arcadian beauty of the forest of Arden is transposed to modern-day China, where rural and urban worlds collide.
