The Summary of Winter's Tale
This drama is generally classified as a comedy play by William Shakespeare. However it is also referred to as a 'problem play', because it cannot be easily described as either a tragedy or comedy. The plot story moves between King Leontes' court in Sicilia and Bohemia. The complications arise from King Leontes' and his Queen's friendly attentions to the visiting King of Bohemia. In a trial the Oracle of Delphi declares the queen guiltless but the King still banishes her. Their young son, Mamillius dies of grief but the Queen's newborn baby daughter, Perdita, is rescued from death by a Bohemian shepherd who raises her his daughter. There is a long time lapse of sixteen years between the Queen's banishment and the delayed happy ending which has a few surprises.
