Act II, Scene 6

Summary

As expected, Orlando and Adam arrive in the Forest of Arden. Adam, weak with hunger, has nearly fainted. As a result, the master carries him and props him up against a tree. Orlando urges Adam not to die before he returns. He then departs to search for food.

Notes

This scene again introduces a realistic element to the romantic setting in the forest. Adam is weak with hunger, and Orlando fears he is close to death. After making the old man as comfortable as possible, Orlando departs to search for food. The scene also emphasizes the closeness between Adam and Orlando. When the old man grows weak, Orlando carries him, even though he is the master. He seems pleased to be able to return the kindness that Adam has shown to him. Orlando truly shows that he is a noble, but gentle, young man.
