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_.
