William Shakespeare: Das Wintermärchen (The Winter’s Tale) Die tragikomische Romanze in fünf Akten in Versen und Prosa entstand 1610/11 und wurde 1611 in London uraufgeführt. Der Erstdruck erfolgte 1623 in der sogenannten First Folio Ausgabe. König Leontes glaubt, seine Frau Hermione habe ihn mit Polixenes, dem König von Böhmen, betrogen. Leontes lässt daraufhin seine Tochter als vermeintlichen Bastard aussetzen und Hermione den Prozess wegen Hochverrats machen. Auch als das Orakel von Delphi ihm sagt, Hermione sei unschuldig, hält Leontes an seinem hasserfüllten Wahn fest. Erst viel zu spät erkennt er seinen tragischen Irrtum. Die deutsche Erstaufführung erfolgte 1859 in Weimar. Die in dieser Ausgabe zugrunde gelegte Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck und wurde erstmals 1832 bei Georg Andreas Reimer in Berlin gedruckt. Zur Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung: August Wilhelm Schlegel begann 1796 eine Gesamtübersetzung der Werke William Shakespeares, musste das Vorhaben jedoch 1810 nach 14 Dramen abbrechen. 1825 setzte Ludwig Tieck das Projekt unter Mitarbeit seiner ältesten Tochter Dorothea und Wolf Graf von Baudissins fort. 1833 schloss Dorothea Tieck mit der deutschen Fassung von Macbeth die bis heute als maßgeblich geltende sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung ab. »Ich empfehle dringend die sogenannte Schlegel-Tieck-Übersetzung.« Marcel Reich-Ranicki Erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt von Christoph Martin Wieland (1766). Die vorliegende Übersetzung stammt von Dorothea Tieck. Erstdruck in: Shakspeare's dramatische Werke. Übersetzt von August Wilhelm Schlegel.

Equal parts tragedy and history play, Richard III chronicles the rise and short reign of its diabolical title character. Of this masterful creation, esteemed critic Harold Bloom has written, The manipulative, highly self-conscious, obsessed hero-villain moves himself from being the passive sufferer of his own moral and/or physical deformity to becoming a highly active melodramatist. Portrayed as England's curse and as his own worst enemy, the jealous and ambitious Richard would find little glory or peace awaiting him upon his ascension to England's throne. This collection of critical essays about the Bard's Richard III includes classic criticism from a number of notable critics throughout the centuries. Edited by Bloom, this title also features a handy index for quick reference.

This work treats a single Shakespeare play from a number of perspectives. The author combines insights from contemporary psychology with art, social and stage histories to challenge the limits of current positivist critical theories. The book also has a central theme: how the dark side of art and illusion must be represented in order to establish the redemptive pattern which The Winter's Tale shares with Shakespeare's other late tragi-comedies.

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.
