As You Like It Act 3, Scene 1 Summary

  • Back at the Court, Frederick is still in a rage trying to find Orlando. He demands that Oliver find Orlando and bring him back within a year, alive or dead.
  • As usual, should Oliver fail, the punishment is banishment.
  • In the meantime, Duke Frederick's tough guys have seized all of Oliver's land until he can hand over Orlando to the Duke.
  • Oliver grumbles that he never loved his brother Orlando.
  • The Duke, less than interested in being pals, says hating his brother makes Oliver even more of a villain. (Slightly ironic considering what Duke Frederick did to his own bro, Duke Senior, isn't it?)
  • Duke Frederick sends Oliver packing.
