    • Dame Edith E vans as Volumnia by Robert Buhler
    • ‘the honours of the performance fell to Miss Edith Evans. She is that rare thing, an actress with bothbreadth and subtlety. She is that equally rare thing, an actress who can bring out the full literaryflavour of every word. To those who know their Shakespeare before they see him on the stage, howmaddening it is to find word after word misunderstood, slurred over, debased, diminished, orsubjected to the ignominy of substitution by the performers. But Miss Evans quickens every syllable,recognizes in a choice epithet something as three-dimensional as a living being, reveals newwonders unsuspected and never to be forgotten.’Herbert Farjeon describing Dame Edith Evans as Mistress Pagein Nigel Playfairs 1923 production ofThe Merry Wives of WindsorShakespeare in the Theatre: An Anthology of Criticism, ed. by Stanley Wells, p. 202 #embracingShakespeare
