William Shakespeare, often called the English national poet, is widely considered the greatest dramatist of all time.Shakespeare has great heroes in all his plays. At the same time, he has portrayed his heroines also in many of his plays like Rosalind,Portia, Desdemona, Beatrice, Bianca, Celia etc. Rosalind is one among the best characters in his play As You Like It. It is a pastoralcomedy which follows its heroine Rosalind as she feels persecution in her uncle‘s court, accompanied by her cousin Celia to findsafety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. In a Renaissance English woman, Rosalind exemplifies the best of virtues to befound. Rosalind‘s humble spirit is her character trait. She demonstrates her trait through her loyalty to all especially her cousin Celia.Rosalind must have torn between the father she loves and the uncle who cheated him out of his throne, but she didn‘t show anybitterness. Rosalind‘s exceptional talent is her way of talk to others. It is demonstrated during the bright flow of her conversation.She is witty in all occasions, and her wordplay is specifically sparkling when she is alone with Celia. She is particularly charmingwhen she is lovingly teasing Orlando.
