Summary
Queen Elizabeth herself is said to have requested the return of Falstaff to the Bard's stage ... supposedly she wanted to see him in love. What Shakespeare gave Her Majesty instead was Falstaff's attempt to recoup his fortunes by seducing two respectable wives of affluent Windsor husbands. This most amiable play, depicts the sturdy middle class, rarely found among Shakespeare's milieu of aristocrats
