Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale"
Chandos portrait-oil on canvas, cir. 1856
There are many themes in A Winter’s Tale: grief, jealousy, rage, forgiveness, and love. Classified by scholars as both a romance and a comedy, the play follows the fall from grace of a once-beloved queen accused of adultery by her jealous husband. Everything changes 16 years later when a chance meeting leads to a fated romance proving time heals all wounds. A Winter’s Tale also includes one of the most famous stage directions in theater history: “Exit, pursued by a bear.”
