This seems to be certainly true of this play. I will start off this discussion by pointing out the way in which Rosalind is just so much more interesting than any of her male counterparts in this play. She is a truly original character--as opposed to the somewhat conventional Orlando--who delights and inspires us int turn. You might like to think of the way in which she convincingly disguises herself to play various roles and has a chameleon-like ability to adapt and change.

Rosalind is clever, witty, articulate, playful, and affectionate. She is the kind of independent, self-reliant, intelligent, and fun-loving heroine whom Shakespeare was often so effective at creating.
