Shakespeare sets As You Like It in a pastoral setting, but he still mocks the pastoral mode of writing in the process. One of the fundamental aspects of pastoral is that the country people are simple and kindhearted. Still there is a sense of comradery that exists in the pastoral that does not exist in courtly life.
