I realized that while I enjoyed the portrayal of More, I was sort of wishing for a different play completely, a play like Cyrano de Bergerac, where the brilliant hero is allowed to express himself freely, unafraid of offending.
Then it occurred to me, that I am more like More than like Cyrano. I have a lawyerly disposition, and a strong irenic (peace-making) streak runs through my personality. So perhaps I want more to see Cyrano because I already have a lot of More in me, but I would admire Cyrano as something really different than my own character type.
