What happens to old Adam in As You Like It?
What happens to old Adam, the faithful retainer in As You Like It? Does he die of privation and exhaustion in the forest, or does he survive? Certainly, he disappears from the play after Act 2. His fate seems to be open to interpretation, depending upon how a director wishes to represent Arden.
Amiens’ song later in the scene would seem to support this theme, ie. ‘Blow, blow, thou winter wind’ (II.7.175ff).
