This antiquarian volume contains William Shakespeare's 1623 play, "The Winter's Tale". Considered by some critics to be one of his 'problem plays', the first three acts are preoccupied with extreme psychological drama, whilst the other two acts are humorous and contribute to an up-lifting ending. The narrative of the play is derived from Robert Greene's "Pandosto", which was first published in 1588. Shakespeare changed the plot only slightly, which was surprising considering his general propensity for significant alterations - and the play's rather sedate nature. This delightful and interesting play is highly recommended for all lovers of the form, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Shakespeare's seminal work. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, actor, and poet. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and the world's most famous dramatist. We are republishing this antiquarian book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
