Polixenes is visiting the kingdom of Sicilia, and is enjoying catching up with his old friend. However, after nine months, Polixenes yearns to return to his own kingdom to tend to affairs and see his son. Leontes desperately attempts to get Polixenes to stay longer, but is unsuccessful. Leontes then decides to send his wife, Queen Hermione, to try to convince Polixenes. Hermione agrees and with three short speeches is successful. Leontes is puzzled as to how Hermione convinced Polixenes so easily, and Leontes suddenly goes insane and suspects that his pregnant wife has been having an affair with Polixenes and that the child is a bastard.

display_description Classic Books Library presents this new beautiful edition of William Shakespeare's play, "The Winter's Tale", featuring a specially commissioned new biography of William Shakespeare. The play follows a transformative journey through estrangement and loss, hope and reconciliation. The first part of the story follows the destructive actions of the jealous King Leontes, of Sicilia. He believes that his pregnant wife Hermione has been unfaithful with King Polixenes of Bohemia. In the aftermath, the baby Perdita is abandoned but later rescued. However, further tragedies continue. In the second part, we re-join Perdita sixteen years later to find her in love with Polixines's son. William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616) was an English playwright, poet, and actor. He is considered to be the greatest writer in the English language and is celebrated as the world's most famous dramatist.
