SHAKESPEARE
JANUARY 2M--27, 1962 THE   WINTER'S   TALE
Synopsis
The Sicilian court of Leontes is thrown into confusion when the King
suddenly accuses his wife, Hermione, of an illicit relationship with
Polixenes, the visiting king of Bohemia. The jealous Leontes commissions a follower to poison Polixenes but his plot is revealed and the
innocent Bohemian escapes to his home. Relieving his suspicions confirmed, Leontes orders that the queen be imprisoned and the daughter
which is born to her, taken from the country and abandoned to fate. A
faithful courtier carries the baby Princess to the coast of Bohemia where
he leaves her for dead. The child is discovered by an old shepherd,
however, who decides to raise her as his own daughter.
In Sicilia, Queen Hermione, maintaining her innocence, appeals for judgement to the oracle of Apollo. When a messenger arrives from Delphi
proclaiming Hermione chaste and Leontes a jealous tyrant, however, the
King defies the proclamation and orders the trial to proceed. Almost as
in answer to this profanation, news arrives that Prince Mamillius, Leontes'
son, has suddenly died. Hermione faints and later it is reported that she
too has died. Heartbroken, Leontes repents his sacrilege and goes into
mourning.
Sixteen years pass. In Bohemia, Polixenes having learned of his son's
romance with an unknown shepherd girl resolves to spy on him. In disguise, lie follows Prince Florizel to a sheep-shearing feast where the
lovely Perdita welcomes the guests to her father's cottage. During the
festivities, when Florizel announces his intention of marrying Perdita,
the disguised Polixenes discloses his identity and forbids the match.
Though Perdita is resigned to her fate, the Prince resolves to take her to
the security of a foreign country where they can be wed in peace.
Learning of his son's flight, Polixenes follows him to Sicilia but before
he can execute his wrath, the evidence of the Old Shepherd who had
accompanied the young couple reveals Perdita to be the lost daughter of
Leontes. In the midst of the rejoicings, the court is reminded of the
long-dead Hermione. The faithful waiting-woman, Paulina, offers to show
the King a life-like statue of the Queen which she has had carved for
her chapel. When Leontes visits the shrine, his wonder at the craftsmanship of the sculptor is only surpassed by his amazement when the statue
comes to life and proves to be Hermione herself who had vowed to live
in seclusion until the return of her daughter. UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
