Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

All’s Well That Ends Well ranges from scenes of farce to moments of serious insight. Helena’s character, of rather dubious virtue in terms of her tactics with Bertram, sheds interesting ambiguity on the plot’s general theme of the blindness of prejudice and unreason.” Masterpieces of World Literature
“[All’s Well that Ends Well] has its charms, which the Arkangel cast does its best to emphasize. The pace never lags, the more dramatic moments work well, and the players are uniformly fine.”  AudioFile

Author Bio: William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
