In particular, he traces the near uniform critical disdain of Helena to a particular inability among critics to recognize that women can be both gentle and strong. As often happens when critics strongly favor either Bertram or Helena, though, the other character is denigrated. ” The second reason why this selection is included in its entirety is that it is an attempt to correct an obvious imbalance in this volume and in criticism of the play in general.
