I saw a rather lovely, streamlined, bare bones production of "As You
Like It' last evening here on Cape Cod by a group from New Hampshire
called 'Shakespeare in the Valley". It sent me to the script today to
revisit it. Here's the question I pose. In the opening monologue,
Orlando refers to his brother JAQUES who Oliver "keeps at school". . .
just a coincidence that a JAQUES is with Duke Senior in the forest? Did
Shakespeare simply run out of names? (he seems to certainly favor the
name "Rosalind" in his writings).
