I can honestly say that William Shakespeare may be one of the first men outside my family that I have ever loved. What caused my ardor you ask? As You Like It - I saw it for the first time with an uncle a few years ago and again tonight. As far as plays go, this may as well be a handbook for hopeless romantics everywhere!!! I challenge you to watch this play and not feel the fever, the fire and the sheer fervor of true love burning away in your breast. I challenge you to not hunger beyond all reason to feel a truly deep love as the characters themselves do display. I've felt romance novels, romantic comedies but never anything quite as deep as this. I do freely confess to loving this play to the point where I want a daughter by the name of Rosalind of my own flesh and blood.
