The remembrance of her father never approaches her heart but the tyranny of her sorrows takes all livelihood from her cheek. Your commendations, madam, get from her tears.

I do affect a sorrow indeed, but I have it too.
In the early plays, Shakespeare frequently seems to be showing off through bold displays of his verbal dexterity. All's Well, on the other hand, has a more mature, subtle, and complicated feeling to it. The imagery is more delicate and nuanced. To put it simply, the play sounds so different from the early comedies, and feels much more connected in tone to the great tragedies and problem plays that Shakespeare wrote in the middle and later.
