All's Well that Ends Well

 

All’s Well That Ends Well is a play by William Shakespeare. It’s believed that Shakespeare wrote it between 1604 and 1605.

Historically the play has been classified as a comedy.  However some critics believe it to be one of his “problem plays”, so named because they cannot be neatly classified as tragedy or comedy.  The other problem plays are Measure for Measure and Troilus and Cressida.

“Moderate lamentation is the right of the dead: excessive grief the enemy to the living.” ~ All’s Well That Ends Well by William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare 1564 – 1616

William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright and actor.  His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was baptised on April 26, 1564 and died on April 23, 1616.  While his exact date of birth is unknown, historians believe it to be April 23, 1564.

At the age of 18, Shakespeare married Anne Hathaway.  They had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and Judith. Sometime between 1585 and 1592, Shakespeare began a career in London as an actor, writer, and part-owner of a theatrical company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men.  The company later changed its name to the King’s Men.

It’s believed that in 1613 Shakespeare retired to Stratford.  He died there three years later.

There are few records of Shakespeare’s private life.  That’s lead to much speculation about his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs and the authenticity of works attributed to him.
