Of the many memorable female characters created by Shakespeare, the heroines of All's Well That Ends Well (Helena) and Cymbeline (Imogen) are among the most intriguing. Not only does each woman refuse to submit to her husband's unjust behavior, but in a long and challenging struggle to bring her man into line, each also helps restore harmony to the entire social order. All's Well is classified both as a Comedy and "Problem Play." Cymbeline is one of Shakespeare's late-career mixed genre experimental dramas, classified as a Romance.
