All's Well That Ends Well

by William Shakespeare


All's Well That Ends Well is a play by William Shakespeare, published in the First Folio in 1623, where it is listed among the comedies. There is a debate regarding the dating of the composition of the play, with possible dates ranging from 1598 to 1608. The play is based on the tale of Giletta di Narbona of Boccaccio's The Decameron. Frank Ernest Halliday speculated that Shakespeare may have read a French translation of the tale in William Painter's Palace of Pleasure
All's Well That Ends Well is considered one of Shakespeare's "problem plays", a play that poses complex ethical dilemmas that require more than typically simple solutions.
