There is no evidence that All's Well was popular in Shakespeare's own lifetime and it has remained one of his lesser-known plays ever since, in part due to its odd mixture of fairy tale logic, gender role reversals and cynical realism. Though originally the play was classified as one of Shakespeare's comedies, the play is now considered by some critics to be one of his problem plays, so named because they cannot be neatly classified as tragedy or comedy.

As you would expect from Oxford, this is a very well done edition of the play, with a comprehensive introduction (though I wished for a little more theatre history myself) that covers the major issues in this "problem" comedy (though it is not nearly so much a problem play as, say, Troilus and Cressida, in fact being much closer in many ways to Measure for Measure), several textual appendices, an index, useful textual- and foot-notes (there seem to be a great many phrasings in this play that need explanation--a result of revision?), and two of Shakespeare's direct sources in Erasmus and Painter. There were a few points when I disagreed with the interpreations offered in the footnotes, but overall, the apparatus is excellent.

As for the play itself, the main action concerns the efforts of Helen to recapture her husband Bertram, who is given to her by the King as a reward for curing his fistula. He does not think she, as a physician's daughter, is worthy of his station and flees to the wars in Italy without consumating the marriage. The comic subplot involves the exposure of the cowardice of his companion, Paroles. Helen evnetually fulfills the requirements Bertram sets out in a letter--to obtain his ring and bear a child by him--through a bed trick, and the play ends where it began, with the King (echoes of Lear?) offering Diana, who helped in the trick, her choice of husband.

Overall, a very good edition of a less popular play.

I needed to digest this play before seeing a performance of it. As there are not too many options for this work available, I ordered this after reading the posted reviews of this series. Listening to it reminded me of radio drama (when that medium had such fare) and of how powerful just the spoken word can be. I followed along with a downloaded text and it was a virtually 'effortless' experience. The reviews are of a mind on this and I with them. Looking forward to hearing some others.

This text is an 1815 book that was created personally for a patron of the theater, John Miller, 25 Bow-Street, Covent-Gardens. (The address is printed on the second page along with year). It was crafted by J.P. Kemble who has a Wikipedia page if you wish to verify any information that I supply. It was published by "The Theaters Royal." The text is identical with "All's Well That Ends Well" from the Arden Shakespeare collection. In today's world productions such as Kenneth Branagh-(AS You Like It) or Baz Luhrmann's Portrayal of "Romeo & Juliet can deviate from the original text's but almost never in text form therefore a 200 year old book is meant to collect dust so keep any collectable text in plastic with a dehumidifier pouch. Just for the record, I was asked to review this unique item which should be obvious since I am a student of Shakespeare, a published writer of music but I am not a reviewer-especially any deviation in book text of Shakespeare. In short, look for this one of a kind item which you can find by painstakingly scanning the 1000's of Shakespeare text on Amazon. Then contact the seller to make sure that the text is not a reprint. Good luck, Craig Barr.

I ordered this digital book because it was advertised as an Annotated "All's Well that Ends Well". However, when I got it there were absolutely no annotations.

CLASSIC!
Sinredeemer
A Shakespeare classic! Quick delivery!
This version is truley unabridged and the diction is very good. Every word is spoken and enounciated. However, if either you are trying to read along, or listen in the car, the speed of delivery is very fast. Almost too fast to follow reading and when listening, so fast bits get lost to the listener.

Never the less, with one exception, the two Dumain brothers, each voice is deserable form the others which is required.
