Was it Shakespeare’s intention that it not be produced, or did his colleagues balk at such an unconventional piece of theatre? Shakespeare would most likely be fascinated by the critical reception and trajectory of this strange and wonderful play. It is, after all, critics who shaped the play as a failure for centuries, and, at last, a later generation of commentators who “rescued” the play in the twentieth century. But when the ﬁ rst critics who appear in this volume were writing, such a critical salvaging of All’s Well That Ends Well might have seemed unfathomable.
This, therefore, again must be the reason why the poet has so laboured the character of his hero, in order that he might become a foil to the excellent Helena; and, moreover, we again recognise Shakespeare’s knowledge of the human heart, inasmuch as every day aﬀords us testimonies of the extraordinary endurance, devotion, and attachment of women in the midst of repugnant qualities, and even of savage treatment; for Helena is conscious of, and proves the inﬁdelity, with other disreputable propensities, of her husband.
It is this that makes Helena’s philosophy so “remedial” a one. Ever ready to acknowledge her lack of personal merit, she is inwardly aware of a moral merit, that requires but time and opportunity to obtain for her that which her own simple attractions are unable to command. She does not feel herself formed to inspire regard, but she knows herself worthy to gain regard; and this she diligently and faithfully dedicates her whole thoughts and energies to achieve. ” Helena, with the true courage born of a practical and remedial philosophy, is eager to ﬁnd resources in her own sense of resolve.
