Description/Abstract

This volume examines The Winter's Tale in the context of its distinctive genre, and its place in court entertainment, showing how it both reflected and questioned some of the political and social problems of early Jacobean England. It supplies a line-by-line commentary on the text of the play, and includes the text of Shakespeare's primary source.
