Shakespeare’s The Winters Tale
This is the ageless story of how one man’s suspicious nature and unchecked power can poison the lives of everyone around him. In Shakespeare’s version, the feckless tyrant comes to know his folly and redeems himself in the end. In the Classic Greek version, from which the Bard took his muse, all but the ending, redemption was not extended to the feckless leader in the end or sought after by him. You decide which classic version pertains today.
