The Winters Tale

The Winters Tale

The Winter’s Tale (Folger Shakespeare Library)

“Shakespeare’s violent tragedies may have been popular more because they were the plays most proximate to the pleasures of blood sports than because they were philosophically elevated and meaningful.” Page 287.

Alt ShakespeareOn the heels of my uncertainty about Two Noble Kinsmen, which says more about me than the masterful performance, my previous engagement with The Winter’s Tale comes from seeing it, at Winedale, pre-millennia.

Quote from Leontes. Previously here and here.

From an academic view, there was a plot device that would yield a teaching point in my astrology, as I plumb the depth of various bits of the human psyche.

Knowing how the play will end, previously noted as favorite performance, I shed a tiny tear of joy. The performance was that good.

Really well done by the cast & crew. Remarkable in feeling and delivery, and even better, under a hot summer’s sun.
