I've seen and read and studied The Winter's Tale quite a few times now and every time I've had a slightly different reaction to it. It's a slightly odd play and seems to be a bit of a hodge-podge of parts and I think my reactions have differed because of this. The characters are generally likeable, I enjoy the metatexuality, and it's very...theatrical. While a director's handling changes your perception of all plays, I think this is more noticeable with The Winter's Tale than with others. I'd see or read it again, if nothing else but to find out what I'd make of it on another re-reading!
