As You Like It, The Passionate shepherd to His Love, and The Nymphs Re
Contrasting As You Like It, The Passionate sheepherder to His Love, and The Nymphs reception to the Shepherd The coarse settings in Shakespe ares As You Like It, The Passionate ward to His Love by Christopher Marlowe, and The Nymphs resolve to the Shepherd by Sir Walter capital of North Carolina jointly portray contrasting ideas about nature. Marlowe idealizes pastoral life while Raleighs every last(predicate)y piece shows its oppose aspects. As You Like It explores both the positive and negative qualities. Pastoral settings conventionally carry the connotation of a nurturing and wholesome environment, alike to the philosophical ideas of the superiority of a natural man.

The pastoral scenes in As You Like It and in the companion poems by Marlowe and Raleigh show nature as a refuge with wonderful mysteries, a place of infectious love, and still a cruel, savage place. Nature is all of these things, an amalgam of mixed blessings, which in differing contexts may be both in force(p) and deceptively vicious. Works Cited Marlowe, Christopher.
