William Shakespeare: Das Wintermärchen (The Winter’s Tale) Die tragikomische Romanze in fünf Akten in Versen und Prosa entstand 1610/11 und wurde 1611 in London uraufgeführt. Der Erstdruck erfolgte 1623 in der sogenannten First Folio Ausgabe. König Leontes glaubt, seine Frau Hermione habe ihn mit Polixenes, dem König von Böhmen, betrogen. Leontes lässt daraufhin seine Tochter als vermeintlichen Bastard aussetzen und Hermione den Prozess wegen Hochverrats machen. Auch als das Orakel von Delphi ihm sagt, Hermione sei unschuldig, hält Leontes an seinem hasserfüllten Wahn fest. Erst viel zu spät erkennt er seinen tragischen Irrtum. Die deutsche Erstaufführung erfolgte 1859 in Weimar. Die in dieser Ausgabe zugrunde gelegte Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck und wurde erstmals 1832 bei Georg Andreas Reimer in Berlin gedruckt. Zur Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung: August Wilhelm Schlegel begann 1796 eine Gesamtübersetzung der Werke William Shakespeares, musste das Vorhaben jedoch 1810 nach 14 Dramen abbrechen. 1825 setzte Ludwig Tieck das Projekt unter Mitarbeit seiner ältesten Tochter Dorothea und Wolf Graf von Baudissins fort. 1833 schloss Dorothea Tieck mit der deutschen Fassung von Macbeth die bis heute als maßgeblich geltende sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung ab. »Ich empfehle dringend die sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki Erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt von Christoph Martin Wieland (1766). Die vorliegende Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck. Erstdruck in: Shakspeare's dramatische Werke. Übersetzt von August Wilhelm Schlegel.

The Winter's Tale is Shakespeare's most perfectly realized tragi-comedy, as notable for its tragic intensity as for its comic grace and, throughout, for the richness and complexity of its poetry. It concludes, moreover, with the most daring and moving reconciliation scene in all Shakespeare's plays.

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.

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.

The Winter's Tale

A Commentary on the Structure

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.

The Arden Shakespeare, in association with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, presents a new series of volumes on Shakespeare's plays in performance. The series discusses and analyses the wide range of theatrical interpretation stimulated and provoked by the most frequently performed plays. Each volume explores how different directors, designers and actors have interpreted and adapted an individual play in terms of narrative focus, themes and characters, scenery and costume. The focus is on productions at Stratford-upon-Avon since 1945, on the basis that the record of Shakespeare performances at Stratford's theatres offers a wider, fuller and more various range of interpretation than is offered by any other theatre company. The volumes also set this record in a wider geographical and chronological context by means of a historical overview of earlier productions and of productions beyond Stratford. Published in conjunction with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, each volume features a wealth of photographs (many of them not previously seen in print) drawn from the archive of RSC performance materials held in the Trust's library at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford. Shakespeare at Stratford will surprise, inform and delight both students and scholars of Shakespeare and performance history and the general reader with an interest in theatre. For many years it was commonplace to dismiss The Winter's Tale as too complex or too crudely constructed to be staged successfully. This in-depth study demonstrates how individual performances have challenged this viewpoint and testify rather to the play's stage-worthiness and its potent effect on audiences. Dr Tatspaugh gives an overview of the play's stage history and a detailed discussion of nine productions, revealing how directors, designers and actors have explored the richness of this late romance, and how their explorations have revealed the compelling nature of the play in performance.
