The Winter's Tale: Arden Performance Editions

William Shakespeare

One of Shakespeare's last plays, The Winter's Tale provides tragedy and comedy in equal measure. The King of Bohemia, Polixenes, accuses Queen Hermione, his wife, of adultery and sets off a series of events driven by royal betrayal, jealousy, and the possibility of pastoral love that builds to a fantastical ending.

Arden Performance Editions are ideal for anyone engaging with a Shakespeare play in performance. With clear facing-page notes giving definitions of words, easily accessible information about key textual variants, lineation, metrical ambiguities and pronunciation, each edition has been developed to open the play's possibilities and meanings to actors and students.

Designed to be used and to be useful, each edition has plenty of space for personal annotations and the well-spaced text is easy to read and to navigate.

Each edition offers:
- Short, clear definitions of words
- Information about key textual variants
- Notes on pronunciation of difficult names and unfamiliar words
- An easy to read layout with space to write your own notes
- A short introduction to the play
