Women in Literature ~ Rosalind

Bryce Dallas Howard
as Rosalind, "As You Like It"
(Kenneth Branagh, 2006)

“She is too subtle for thee; and her smoothness,
Her very silence and her patience
Speak to the people, and they pity her.
Thou art a fool: she robs thee of thy name;
And thou wilt show more bright and seem more virtuous
When she is gone. Then open not thy lips:
Firm and irrevocable is my doom
Which I have pass'd upon her; she is banished.”

             ~ William Shakespeare, "As You Like It" (I, iii)
