All's Well That End's Well

Act one, scene three

Summary.....

The play's central romantic figures are a young nobleman called Bertram and an orphaned commoner called Helena. The problems with their romance are due to their different backgrounds and that it is at first a one sided affair with Helena falling in lobe with Bertram. Being a comedy, (albeit with serious undercurrents), Bertram comes around and All's Well does indeed End Well.

Monologue:

If ever we are nature's, these are ours; this thorn

Doth to our rose of youth rightly belong;

Our blood to us, this to our blood is born:

It is the show and seal of nature's truth,

Where love's strong passion is impress'd in youth:

By our remembrances of days foregone,

Such were our faults; or then we thought them none.

Her eye is sick on't: I observe her now
