[The Forest of Arden.]


But will my Rosalind do so?

Rosalind [incognito]:

By my life, she will do as I do.


O, but she is wise.


Or else she could not have the wit to do this. The wiser, the waywarder. Make the doors shut upon a woman's wit, and it will out at the casement. Shut that, and 'twill out at the key-hole. Stop that, 'twill fly with the smoke out at the chimney.


A man that had a wife with such a wit, he might say 'Wit, whither wilt?'
William Shakespeare
As You Like It, 4.1.134-143

At Troynovant we are more interested in excellent or distinctive work than the merely timely or fashionable. Quality is always in season, and often more topical and entertaining than currency or fashion admit. Thus, we aim to refer and amuse, rather than to announce and forget. We avoid spoiling surprises in reviews that recommend; other works take their chances.
