All's Well That Ends Well: Arkangel Shakespeare Audible Audiobook – Original recording
|New from||Used from|
The young and virtuous physician's daughter Helena desperately loves Count Bertram, but he regards her as beneath his notice. When Helena cures the king of France of a mortal illness, he rewards her with Bertram's hand, but before their marriage can be consummated the count flees. To win her husband back again, Helena forms a daring and resourceful plan. A plot to unmask the strutting soldier Parolles makes up another strand in this sometimes disturbing comedy of deception and disguise.

But there is a memorable message written throughout it. How many men living in times when Catholics and Puritans both suffered state persecution could write that, “young Charbon the puritan and old Poysam the papist, howsome’er their hearts are sever’d in religion, their heads are both one; they may jowl horns together like any deer.”
Similarly, how many men recognized, “Our virtues would be proud if our faults whipt them not; and our crimes would despair if they were not cherish’d by our virtues.”
In the human comedy we all bare a curious mix of virtues and vices. Though we are divided by confessional and political differences there is no need for these divisions to lead to societal fractures.
Odd that Shakespeare could see this in the benighted seventeenth century while so many contemporary writers seem only to want inflame racial and political differences. Truly, a writer for all times and places.
Never the less, with one exception, the two Dumain brothers, each voice is deserable form the others which is required.
Shakespeare plays. Clear verse speaking through-out
makes the language come alive and maintains the interest to the end. Highly recommended .
