The Winter's TaleBook - 2008
The Winter's Tale is Shakespeare's most fully realized tragi-comedy, as notable for its tragic intensity as for its comic grace and, throughout, for the richness and complexity of its poetry. Moving from paranoid jealousy to pastoral romance, in a world that mirrors in significant ways the concerns of Jacobean England, the play concludes with the most extraordinary of Shakespeare's reconciliation scenes.
