  • In Isak Dinesen's universe, the magical enchantment of the fairy tale and the moral resonance of myth coexist with an unflinching grasp of the most obscure human strengths and weaknesses. A despairing author abandons his wife, but in the course of a long night's wandering, he learns love's true value and returns to her, only to find her a different woman than the one he left. A landowner, seeking to prove a principle, inadvertently exposes the ferocity of mother love. A wealthy young traveler melts the hauteur of a lovely woman by masquerading as her aged and loyal servant. Shimmering and haunting, Dinesen's Winter's Tales transport us, through their author's deft guidance of our desire to imagine, to the mysterious place where all stories are born.

  • Genre : Language Arts & Disciplines
  • Winter's Tales tackles the question of whether narrative and drama are as different from each other as some scholars have assumed. By examining everything from voice and tense to "scene and summary," George, a theater professor and novelist, analyzes the many choices a writer has when framing a story. She addresses narrative theoretical ground before focusing on contemporary plays that are "novelistic." She finishes the study by examining the problems of adaptation from novel to stage. Her account is-by way of its essayistic style-personal, at times a writer's journal of reading and writing discoveries. In Winter's Tales, George demonstrates, among other things, the ways the diegetic is evident in the very content of frame plays and divided plays: she distinguishes between kinds of memory plays by cataloguing the possible stances of the narrator: she also covers subjects like multiple narration, and she gives accounts of the epic, dramatic, and lyric solutions to adapting novels. Kathleen George is a Professor in the Theatre Arts Department at the University of Pittsburgh.

    The Winter's Tale Annotated
  • Author : William Shakespeare

  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Books
  • The Winter's Tale is a play by William Shakespeare, originally published in the First Folio of 1623. Although it was grouped among the comedies, some modern editors have relabelled the play as one of Shakespeare's late romances. Some critics consider it to be one of Shakespeare's problem plays, because the first three acts are filled with intense psychological drama, while the last two acts are comedic and supply a happy ending.

  • Forty-three years ago, two teachers came out from behind their desks to offer hope and comfort to an adolescent afraid to take the first steps into adulthood. That December, I wrote my first Christmas tale as a tribute to the season of hope, to send to those people in my life who mattered to me. I have continued to write a poem or tale almost every Christmas season since then. This year, I thought I would compile all of those Christmas notes to create a book as a tribute to the season and to those who remain dear to me. I hope the poems and tales will resonate with you, bringing Yuletide messages of hope, goodwill, and peace.

    The Winter's Tale
  • Author : Fitzroy Pyle
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Pages : 216
  • ISBN : 9781136564611
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Literary Criticism
  • 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.

  • Genre : Fiction
  • Blind rage underlies Leontes’ jealousy in The Winter’s Tale. Although his jealously is akin to Othello’s, it is not carried out to the same extent, thanks to the oracle’s pronouncement. While Leontes’s change of heart strains credibility, he does redeem himself and, in the process, changes the tragedy into a comedy, or at least a play with a happy resolution. One might also compare Hermione with Desdemona as both are “more sinned against than sinning” (Lear, III.2). Despite Leontes’ reformation, one cannot avoid sympathy for Hermione, she who has been made to pay dearly for her husband’s lack of faith and trust. She certainly deserves more.

    A Winter Tale
  • Author : Mark E. Turner
  • Publisher : Stephen F Austin University Press
  • Pages : 48
  • ISBN : 1622880323
  • Reader Reviews :
  • Genre : Juvenile Fiction
  • Mark Turner's beautiful children's book, A Winter's Tale: How Raven Gave Light to the World, is a sensitive retelling of the Native American creation myth, of how Raven, transformed into a child, stole light from the mythical grandfather who held it as a treasure, and bestowed it upon a world encased in darkness. Shared among numerous Native American tribes, the Raven's trickery is well-known. However, what makes Turner's contemporary narrative so compelling is the role the child plays in retrieving light from the loving metaphorical grandfather, the empowerment the child receives from that love, and how, transforming into the Raven, the child takes flight into a world that needed the penultimate gift: light itself. A Winter's Tale is beautifully presented, with 33 wonderful full-color illustrations by Emily Graves and Mark Turner's accompanying musical score on compact disc. Children will delight not only in the story retold but in the combined visual and auditory interpretations of the Raven myth.
