Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

One of Shakespeare's most haunting and enigmatic late plays, The Winter's Tale is a fine example of Shakespeare's fascination with the dramatic genre of "romance"--the portrayal of magical lands, familial conflict and exile, and final reunion and reconciliation. Drawing on Robert Green's story Pandosto, Shakespeare's play tells the story of the middle-aged Leontes, King of Sicilia, and his childhood friend Polixenes, the King of Bohemia. Leontes mistakenly believes that his friend is having an affair with his wife, Hermione. In his jealousy, and consumed by "tremor cordis", he tries to murder Polixenes, who flees, and accuses his wife of adultery. Hermione gives birth to a baby girl, Perdita, who Leontes denounces as illegitimate, and casts her out into the wilderness. Hermione is ultimately proved innocent, but her son, Mamillius, dies of grief. Hermione collapses, apparently dead, and Leontes is left to pick up the tragic consequences of his actions. Time passes, and the action moves to Bohemia, where the lost child Perdita has grown up a shepherdess in the midst of "great creating nature". The final scenes of the play draw towards resolution and reconciliation between Leontes, Hermione and their lost daughter, culminating in one of Shakespeare's most moving final scenes. One of Shakespeare's most consummate plays, The Winter's Tale is a fascinating study of male insecurity and the relations between art and nature. --Jerry Brotton.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Leontes' Jealousy turns him into a nightmare. 30. März 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I read shakespear a lot. I specifically enjoyed this book. Though there is the death of a prince (Mamillius) the book remains good. The first half of it is a tragedy and the second half a hilarioous comedy. How shakespear did this i don't know. I recommend this book to all the nerds in the world. (I HAD TO READ THIS BOOK FOR SCHOOL)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A classic 4. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
"A sad tale's best for winter." And this tale is full of misperceived motives, anger, absurdities, seeming tragedy, and hysterical comedy. The Winter's tale is one of my all-time favorite Shakespearean stories.
The story revolves upon tragicomic figure of Leontes, King of Sicilia. Essentially a good King, Leontes buys himself a heepin' spoonful o' trouble and grief because of his suspicion, envy, and foolish rashness.
I won't spoil the story here so I will end by saying that The Winter's Tale is a wonderfully entertaining story of romance, loss, redemption and restoration. It is of course superbly written; with Shakespeare tossing in one of his great comic rogues: Autolycus.
This book gets my highest recommendation

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Bit Awkward, But Still Excellent 9. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
In my opinion, this does not quite reach the level of a masterpiece. Leontes' initial rage is too sudden and abrupt. Furthermore, there is something too artificial about the happy ending when Shakespeare makes it clear that Camillo will marry Antigonus' widow Paulina. Antigonus is too awkwardly dealt with. Remember, Leontes threatened to kill him and his wife if he did not agree to leave the infant girl in the wilderness. But all of that aside, the play is an excellent piece of literature. Leontes' rages are frightening and effective. Furthermore, his regret and repentance is touching and convincing. Antigonus is memorable as the martyr who offers us some comical touches. Hermione is fine as the forgiving queen. Perdita and Florizel are pretty good as the determined young lovers. Camillo deserves special notice as one of the few level headed characters. First he protects Polixenes from Leontes' fury, and then he protects Perdita and Florizel from Polixenes. But the most memorable character could very well be Autolycus, who in my opinion is a literary reincarnation of Falstaff. This play does have its weaknesses, but it also has good poetry, drama, comedy, moments of suspense, interesting surprises, and well developed characters.
