Il vecchio Duca, spodestato dal prepotente fratello, con pochi cortigiani rimastigli fedeli ha trovato rifugio nella foresta di Arden. Qui si avventurano sulle sue tracce la bella figlia Rosalinda e l’inseparabile Celia, erede dell’usurpatore. L’ambizione, l’invidia e la cupidigia che avvelenano i rapporti di corte sono ormai alle spalle. Complice la magica atmosfera del bosco, Eros dispiega tutta la sua potenza: fra i protagonisti si intrecciano storie d’amore, gli scellerati si redimono e dopo svariate peripezie il legittimo duca tornerà in possesso dello scettro. Nel solco della tradizione arcadica cinquecentesca, Shakespeare allestisce una favola silvestre in cui si celebrano le virtù rasserenatrici della natura, eterna fonte di innocenza e felicità, anticipando un tema che sarà centrale nella Tempesta. Scritta con ogni probabilità nel 1599, Come vi piace è una pièce leggiadra che mantiene da cima a fondo l’ironica promessa del titolo: prendetela come vi pare, sembra dire l’autore, perché tutto il mondo è un palcoscenico, gli uomini e le donne non sono che attori e la Fortuna la fa sempre da padrona.

As in "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Hamlet" and "Antony and Cleopatra," Shakespeare in "As You Like It" is able to join disparate elements in unusual proportion into a unified whole of tone and mood which may be rationalized but never completely explained.
