The winter's tale is a play in five acts by William Shakespeare, originally produced in 1610-11 with a plot based on the play Pandosto (1588) by Robert Greene. One of Shakespeare's final plays, it is a romantic comedy with elements of tragedy. Leontes, the jealous king of Sicilia, mistakenly believes that his faithful wife Hermione is having an affair with his old friend Polixenes, the king of Bohemia. Various mayhem ensues, after which the three reconcile following the wedding of their children. (Florizel, the son of Polixenes, weds Perdita, the daughter of Leontes and Hermione.) This edition includes detailed notes and commentary on the same page as the text, a full introduction discussing the critical and historical background to the play, and appendices presenting sources and relevant extracts.

Equal parts tragedy and history play, Richard III chronicles the rise and short reign of its diabolical title character. Of this masterful creation, esteemed critic Harold Bloom has written, The manipulative, highly self-conscious, obsessed hero-villain moves himself from being the passive sufferer of his own moral and/or physical deformity to becoming a highly active melodramatist. Portrayed as England's curse and as his own worst enemy, the jealous and ambitious Richard would find little glory or peace awaiting him upon his ascension to England's throne. This collection of critical essays about the Bard's Richard III includes classic criticism from a number of notable critics throughout the centuries. Edited by Bloom, this title also features a handy index for quick reference.

First published in 1969. Critics have in the past described The Winter's Tale as a work of "haphazard structure". More recent criticism has defended the structure of the play and this work shows that the evidence points to the fact that Shakespeare took infinite pains with the choice and disposition of the materials of The Winter's Tale. The scene-by-scene commentary considers The Winter's Tale in isolation, but prologue, epilogue and appendix place it in the context of related plays, and discuss, among others, the problem of genre as it affects the play.

This work treats a single Shakespeare play from a number of perspectives. The author combines insights from contemporary psychology with art, social and stage histories to challenge the limits of current positivist critical theories. The book also has a central theme: how the dark side of art and illusion must be represented in order to establish the redemptive pattern which The Winter's Tale shares with Shakespeare's other late tragi-comedies.
