Subject:        Lady Macbeth or Rosalind?

SHAKSPEReans,

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?
