For references from 1876 to 1977 to connections between Harington/Orlando Furioso/AYL, see Richard Knowles’s New Variorum edition of AYL, 1977.

In regards to Hannibal Hamlin’s query about discussion of possible links of John Harington (and Ariosto) to AYL, see Juliet Dusinberre, “As Who Liked It?” Shakespeare Survey 46 (1993), pp. 9-21. I believe she notes the (in my experience) seldom discussed reference to a famous moment in Orlando Furioso when that Orlando posts his poems on trees in a forest, like Shakespeare’s Orlando. Shakespeare apparently took the name and that action from Ariosto, very probably from Harington’s translation. Details are sketchy after so many years, but I believe there is further discussion about Harington and his possible influence on Jaques.

Dear Hannibal and SHAKSPERians,

 

The World Shakespeare Bibliography lists two articles about Harington and AYLI:

 

Juliet Dusinberre. "As Who Liked It?" Shakespeare Survey 46 (1993): 9-21. 

 

Peter Smith. "Ajax by Any Other Name Would Smell as Sweet” in Tudor Theatre: Emotion in Theatre (Lang, 1996).

Jack Heller in his latest post talks of role playing games in teaching. He might well be interested to know that someone at Cornell, in I believe, 1990, wrote a game, “The Would-Be Gentleman,” that did the same sort of thing. I remember playing it and it was addictive. Many people played and played, just to see what would happen at the end if they made different choices in the beginning.

Sir John Harington

Subject:    Sir John Harington

 

Dear Shakespearians,

 

I’ve just been reading the ODNB article on Sir John Harington, which mentions that there has been speculation about Harington and As You Like It, given that he translated Ariosto (Orlando) and wrote the Metamorphosis of Ajax (Jacques). I don’t recall seeing such speculation, but I’m intrigued. Does anyone know where such speculations might be found?

 

Many thanks,

 

Hannibal
