  • "A play about a king who unjustly accuses his wife of adultery. Sixteen years later, their daughter, missing since infancy, is miraculously restored and reconciled with her dead mother, who is brought back to life again. More attention is paid to the fable and the plot and to the characters than to symbolism and allegorical interpretations."

  • "After a nine month visit by Polixenes, King of Bohemia to his childhood friend, Leontes, King of Sicilia, Polixenes, yearns to return to his own kingdom and see his son. Suddenly Leontes is consumed by jealousy and is convinced that his wife Hermione has had an affair with Polixenes. Warned by the courtier Camillo, Polixenes flees for Bohemia. Hermione is tried for treason and her daughter is ordered to be abandoned in a desolate place."
  • "King Leontes unjustly accuses his wife Hermione of adultery with King Polixenes. He imprisons Hermione, who falls into a swoon he believes is death, and orders her infant daughter to be abandoned on the shore. Sixteen years later, their daughter falls in love with Polixenes's son and when they come to Leontes' kingdom, her identity is revealed. Leontes and Polixenes become friends again, and Hermione is found to be alive after all."

  • "The winter's tale is a play in five acts by William Shakespeare, originally produced in 1610-11 with a plot based on the play Pandosto (1588) by Robert Greene. One of Shakespeare's final plays, it is a romantic comedy with elements of tragedy. Leontes, the jealous king of Sicilia, mistakenly believes that his faithful wife Hermione is having an affair with his old friend Polixenes, the king of Bohemia. Various mayhem ensues, after which the three reconcile following the wedding of their children. (Florizel, the son of Polixenes, weds Perdita, the daughter of Leontes and Hermione.) This edition includes detailed notes and commentary on the same page as the text, a full introduction discussing the critical and historical background to the play, and appendices presenting sources and relevant extracts."
  • "Running an emotional gamut from betrayal and broken hearts to romance and reconciliation, this 1611 tragicomedy begins with the tyrannical actions of a jealous king, whose baseless suspicions destroy his own family. The play's second half takes place 16 years later, when the lively plot takes a lighthearted turn, abounding in song and dance."@en
  • "One of the last plays Shakespeare penned on his own, The Winter's Tale is a transcendent work of death and rebirth, exploring irrational sexual jealousy, the redemptive world of nature, and the magical power of art. Under the editorial supervision of Jonathan Bate and Eric Rasmussen, two of today's most accomplished Shakespearean scholars, this Modern Library series incorporates definitive texts and authoritative notes from William Shakespeare: Complete Works. Each play includes an Introduction as well as an overview of Shakespeare's theatrical career; commentary on past and current productions based on interviews with leading directors, actors, and designers; scene-by-scene analysis; key facts about the work; a chronology of Shakespeare's life and times; and black-and-white illustrations. Ideal for students, theater professionals, and general readers, these modern and accessible editions from the Royal Shakespeare Company set a new standard in Shakespearean literature for the twenty-first century. From the Trade Paperback edition."@en
  • "King Leontes of Sicilia begs his childhood friend, King Polixenes of Bohemia, to extend his visit to Sicilia. Polixenes protests that he has been away from his kingdom for nine months, but after Leontes's pregnant wife, Hermione, pleads with him he relents and agrees to stay a little longer. Leontes, meanwhile, has become possessed with jealousy--convinced that Polixenes and Hermione are lovers, he orders his loyal retainer, Camillo, to poison the Bohemian king. Instead, Camillo warns Polixenes of what is afoot, and the two men flee Sicilia immediately. -- from SparkNotes."
  • "The jealous King of Sicily becomes convinced that his wife is carrying the child of his best friend. Imprisoned and put on trial, the Queen collapses when the King refuses to accept the divine confirmation of her innocence. The child is abandoned to die on the coast of Bohemia. But when she is found and raised by a shepherd, it seems redemption may be possible."

  • "Offers explanatory notes on pages facing the text of the play, as well as an introduction to Shakespeare's language, life and theater."
  • "The Winter's Tale is Shakespeare's most perfectly realized tragi-comedy, as notable for its tragic intensity as for its comic grace and, throughout, for the richness and complexity of its poetry. It concludes, moreover, with the most daring and moving reconciliation scene in all Shakespeare's plays. Though the title may suggest an escapist fantasy, recent criticism has seen in the play a profoundly realist psychology and a powerful commentary on the violence implicit in family relationships and deep, long-lasting friendships. Stephen Orgel's edition considers the play in relation to Renaissance conceptions of both dramatic genre and the family, traces the changing critical and theatrical attitudes towards it, and places its psychological and dramatic conflicts within the Jacobean cultural and political context. The commentary pays special attention to the play's linguistic complexity, and the edition also includes a complete reprint of Shakespeare's source, Pandosto, by Robert Greene."

Bridges Adams."@en
  • "Contains the text of the play, information about Shakespeare and his theater, bibliography, and explanatory notes."
  • "The Winter's Tale was one of the very last plays Shakespeare wrote. A moving romance whose themes are sin, forgiveness, death, rebirth, and the power of time and nature to heal all wounds. Based on a novella by Shakespeare's enemy and arch rival Robert Greene, "The winter's tale" introduces Perdita, perhaps the Bard's most richly symbolic character. At times tragic, at times humorous, but always entertaining and instructive, "The winters tale" is a complex and rewarding work by the greatest dramatist of all time. A Shakespeare Society production. The complete play in four acts."

  • "CLASSIC FICTION (PRE C 1945). Based on Robert Greene's story Pandosto, the play tells the story of Leontes, king of Sicilia, and his childhood friend, Polixenes, king of Bohemia. In a jealous rage, Leontes mistakenly accuses Polixenes and his own his wife, Hermione, of adultery and her newborn daughter as illegitimate, casting her into the wilderness, causing their son to die of grief and Hermione to seemingly follow suit. With his family dead or believed dead, Leontes must face the tragic consequences of his actions. With unbridled honesty and the pain of love, the final act is one of Shakespeare's most moving reconciliation scenes."
