Come And Woo Me, Woo Me. ~ Wednesday Wisdom

Shakespeare* * *

Shakespeare was no fool, people. He knew exactly what he was doing when he created Rosalind, an important female character in “As You Like It.” Rosalind’s best qualities are that she is witty, intelligent, scheming and lively. She makes the above remark to Orlando, her suitor, when she says, “Come, woo me, woo me, for now I am in a holiday humor, and like enough to consent.”

Wikipedia calls Rosalind “the main character of the play who extracts the clarity of important traits in other characters.”

As a writer, I like to suppose I have the same qualities as fictional Rosalind: the ability to extract nuances and sketches of characters is important to fully understand the story, plot, and main and supporting characters.

Today’s wisdom from Rosalind through Shakespeare can teach us much.

It can also remind us to enjoy some holiday humor, all in good fun.

Go hang some mistletoe. Woo me.
