A {{comedy}} / {{romance}} by Creator/WilliamShakespeare. It's one of his less-known and less-liked plays, and it's theorized that it was co-written or script-doctored by a less accomplished writer. It doesn't help that the surviving text is corrupt, possibly a pirate copy from memory; various scholarly attempts have been made to produce an improved version. It is certainly based on the ChivalricRomance ''Apollonius'', which has never been noted for coherent plot -- the "moldy tale" Creator/BenJonson termed it -- which could not have helped.
