Winter's Tale
Winter's Tale | William Shakespeare
110 posts | 75 read | 1 reading | 25 to read
The Winter's Tale is one of Shakespeare's most varied, theatrically self-conscious, and emotionally wide-ranging plays. This 2007 edition provides a newly-edited text, a comprehensive introduction that takes into account current critical thinking, and a detailed commentary on the play's language designed to make it easily accessible to contemporary readers. Much of the play's copiousness inheres in its generic intermingling of tragedy, comedy, romance, pastoral, and the history play. In addition to dates and sources, the introduction attends to iterative patterns, the nature and cause of Leontes' jealousy, the staging and meaning of the bear episode, and the thematic and structural implications of the figure of Time. Special attention is paid to the ending and its tempered happiness. Performance history is integrated throughout the introduction and commentary. Textual analysis, four appendices - including the theatrical practice of doubling, and a select chronology of performance history - and a reading list complete the edition.

Winter's Tale | William Shakespeare

Leontes. Break up the seals and read.

Officer. [Reads]. Hermione is chaste;
Polixenes blameless; Camillo a true subject; Leontes a jealous tyrant...

Lords. Now blessed be the great Apollo!

Hermione. Praised!

Leontes. Hast thou read truth?

Officer. Ay, my lord; even so As it is here set down.

Leontes. There is no truth at all i' the oracle...

Stuff and nonsense. I struggled to get into this, hence I fell far behind the #shakespearereadalong. Leontes, King of Sicilia, has a ridiculous hissy fit and thereby causes heedless death and suffering. Sixteen years later, Polixenes, King of Bohemia, has a hissy fit of his own which makes everything right in the end (if you can forget said death and suffering). And as for that ending?! Nope!
I liked Paulina. I loved the language. And that's all.

batsy "Ridiculous hissy fit" just about describes it! 12mo
GingerAntics I‘m with @batsy you nailed the whole core of the play in three words. 12mo

The Winters Tale is based off Robert Greene‘s Pandosto, it‘s kind of like Shakespeare‘s dramatization of the story. My edition to includes some excerpts from Pandosto (20 pages worth)... it‘s an elegantly written work on its own, even if it goes a bit silly in the comedy parts.

#shakespearereadalong

batsy Is this the Signet edition? I have the Signet one and there's quite a chunk of an excerpt as well, I should read it ☺️ 12mo
Graywacke @batsy yes, Signet Classic. I‘m still working through the commentary stuff. The Greene excerpts are rewarding. Not sure about the rest. 12mo
merelybookish Oh thanks for posting that! There doesn't need to be a reason for Leontes's jealousy because jealousy isn't reasonable! 12mo
Graywacke @merelybookish yes...actually. I hadn‘t thought about that because in Greene‘s version there is good reason for suspicion. 12mo

Ok, I‘ve been saving some of these for awhile... whether he‘s The Shepherd‘s Son in your version or The Clown, as in mine, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the man for this role. I think his ability to do singing, dancing, and physical comedy would make this role very very memorable.

I admire this play more than I love it. It's a hard play to connect with emotionally, but there's so much going on that speaks to Shakespeare's maturity. It takes the jealousy & patriarchal poison of Othello & reworks it with the pastoral fantasy of As You Like It. But danger intrudes into this fantasy: there are pick-pocketing tricksters & bears to watch out for 🐻 The themes of art/rebirth/nature are aspects that I'll be mulling over for awhile.

batsy This is another one where I'm torn between a "Pick" and a "So-so"! Thanks for hosting @merelybookish I loved the fun weekly challenges, and thanks to fellow readers for the interesting discussions this month #shakespearereadalong ? 12mo

GingerAntics This is a really good way to explain this play. I was torn between a pick (it was a pretty good play and has some interesting possibilities for any production) and a so-so. In the end it‘s just in the so-so end of the spectrum. 12mo
merelybookish Great review! I think I like this better than you or @gingerantics. I like the characters and am intrigued by what he's trying to pull off. I also suspect it works better on stage. (Probably true of all his plays. 😆) 12mo
batsy @GingerAntics @merelybookish Thank you both! The characters are very interesting and there's a lot to chew on here. I'll be interested to know how I feel when I revisit it again in the future. At the moment it all didn't hang together well for me, which is largely why I went with a so-so. 12mo
GingerAntics @merelybookish I ended up going so-so over pick for the same reason @batsy did. I would love to see a production of it. I feel like that would tip me toward pick. 12mo

I realise that I'm very much out of the loop where younger actors are concerned. A lot of the teen TV shows I enjoy are pure #braincandy and I can't imagine any of the actors taking on Shakespearean roles 😆 However I did enjoy Eliza Scanlen's unnerving performance in Sharp Objects and would cast her as Perdita. An interesting switch from the dark and grim to a role that symbolises rebirth, hope, and love.

#ShakespeareReadAlong @merelybookish

merelybookish None of us are up on young actresses, it seems! 😆 But I think is a great pick. She definitely has dewy milkmaid/princess looks! 12mo
Reggie When Julia Roberts started playing a mom in movies I realized we‘re all getting older. 12mo
batsy @merelybookish Ha, yes! And I've learned a lot, like I need to watch Columbus soon! (Plus, it just occurred to me that John Cho would make a perfect Autolycus...) 12mo
batsy @Reggie Bahaha so true! 😂😭 12mo
merelybookish Oh yeah, John Cho would be good if that role! Columbus is great, if you like quiet character studies. Another movie in a similar vein is Paterson. Loved it too! 12mo

I wanted a fresh face for Perdita. Bailee Madison is unknown to me, but she‘s got a filmography going back to Bridge to Terebithia when she was 6, so I think she has the chops. #shakespearereadalng (Anyone ever actually see her in anything?) @merelybookish

Okay #shakespearereadalong stalwarts, it's the last week of casting. Act V and it's Perdita. (Right?!)
My pick is Haley Lu Richardson because I LOVED her performance in Columbus soooo much. (If you have not seen that film, I highly recommend.) Plus I'm not really up on young actresses.
So hit me up. Who should play Perdita?
Remember, there's $20 to win!
Thanks to everyone who has participated! It's been fun for me. I hope it's been fun for you!

Well, I had to find a way to cast Cillian Murphy in this 😆 And while I would love to have him hang around for as long as possible, some of the bigger male roles like Florizel are kind of boring. So I'm going to cast him as the trickster Autolycus. The absurdism of Act 4 would be great material for an actor like him ❤️
