As You Like It - William Shakespeare An enchanting, humorous play. Rosalind's changing gender, and the fact that she was played by a boy, makes it interesting as to Shakespeare's views on gender and romance. I found it comical, but a little strange, the Orlando accepted "page" Rosalind's invitation that she could try to pretend to be like Rosalind for him. I guess my mind went straight to the gutter, but because you can't get the woman you want, a man pretending to be her is the next best thing?

I enjoyed the philosophical musings of Touchstone and of course the melancholy words of Jacques. Rosalind is fun and inspiring. A quick read, and it doesn't take too much concentration to follow along.
