Duke Frederick has constructed a court where everything is as he sees it, or as he likes it, a strict but orderly and certain world of black and white, good and bad, love and hate, male and female, right and wrong. When those in his court complicate his vision by showing their “true colors”, he questions their loyalties and banishes them to the Forest of Arden. Here, the exiles are ironically free to explore their true but complicated natures and learn what it means to be human and to love, as they like it.
