Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0441 Readings about A Winter's Tale

Dear Jack,

 >I sometimes like to support a drama program by purchasing some books
 >with useful materials about the play its participants are working on.
 >This year, they will be working on _A Winter's Tale_. I would like
 >titles of at least five book or similar resources on _A Winter's  Tale_.
 >The participants have a variety of educational backgrounds   -- 
some may
 >benefit from something like a play paraphrase, and others would enjoy
 >reading academic discussions. The books need not be solely on  _Winter's
 >Tale_; two years ago I gave them Shapiro's 1599 while they were  working
 >on _Julius Caesar_.

In addition to the books mentioned by Jacqueline Mullender, you might 
also consider for your readers:

Wilbur Sanders, _The Winter's Tale_
Stanley Cavell, _Disowning Knowledge_ in six [or seven, depending on the 
edition!] plays of Shakespeare (chapter on WT)
Northrop Frye, _A Natural Perspective_
Simon Palfrey: _Late Shakespeare_
Ken Gross, _The Dream of the Moving Statue_

and perhaps my Shakespeare and the _Theatre of Wonder_.

Tom
