It is typical of the brilliant nonsense that fills this comedy, written in approximately 1599, that Jaques's wise and witty speech on the seven ages of man should be put into the mouth of a man whom even the heroine, Rosalind, derides for his 'melancholy'. In the play, folly, greed and malice bring no evil consequences. But Shakespeare is none the less laughing at the romancing he heard in London about the charms of country life, the insignificance of wordly wealth and the uselessness of a sound education.
