Subject: Lady Macbeth or Rosalind?
Nothing can be more fun than to compare two women, especially
Shakespearean ladies, like Lady Macbeth and Lady Rosalind.
According to *The New York Times*, British actress Helen Mirren wants to
portray Martha Stewart, saying, "Absolutely. She must have amazing
energy. I don't understand the villification of Martha Stewart. She
doesn't deserve Lady Macbeth. In a way, she's more like Rosalind from
*As You Like It*. She's mouthy, pushy and opinionated-kind of wonderful
and kind of difficult." Actress Mirren has played Shakespeare's Lady
Macbeth. So, how would you compare Lady Macbeth and Rosalind?
