This play was never printed until it appeared after the author's death , in the folio
of 1623. The text , —whether because it contains few deviations from ordinary
modes of expression and trains of thought ; or because the piece , being less ...
I fly not death , to fly his deadly doom : Duke . This very night ; for love is like a
child , Tarry I here , I but attend on death ; That longs for every thing that he can
come by . But , fly I hence , I fly away from life . Val . By seven o'clock I'll get you
To Epidamnum ; till my factor's death , At length another ship had seized on us ;
And the great care of goods at random left And knowing whom it was their hap to
save , Drew me from kind embracements of my spouse : Gave healthful welcome
Sing , syren , for thyself , and I will dote : Spread o'er the silver waves thy golden
hairs , And as a bed I'll take thee , and there lie ; And , in that glorious supposition
, think He gains by death , that hath such means to die : Let Love , being light ...
... Adr . I will attend my husband , be his nurse , Comes this way to the
melancholy vale , Diet his sickness ; for it is my office , The place of death and
sorry execution , And will have no attorney but myself , Behind the ditches of the
abbey here .

"like a wood woman" might indeed have meant "frantic" or "wild" (with grief) which Launce mentions referring to the "shoe" which he adopts for the sake of illustration. However, Shakespeare, even at his earliest writings, was vastly entertained by double entendres and his love of puns is so well documented. In that time in Italy, women wore platform shoes which were raised to elevate the shoes from the mud and other unpleasant "stuff". These were called "chopines" and the platforms were constructed of wood. The higher the platform, the higher the pretentiousness of the lady. Her height could have put her above many others. Since Launce has his father and mother represented as shoes, this second meaning is certainly not outside of the possibility for Shakespeare's intention. Naturally, it would have had the effect of a rather "localized" and "temporary" idea, but the fact of its having been very popular in that day makes it a candidate for the Bard's delight.
