My name is Sean and I am studying 'The Winter's Tale' in high school as part of my subject of theatre studies. I have to present a monologue from the text to be assessed upon come the end of the year.
The monologue that I have chosen is that of Antigonus when he abandons the baby Perdita in Bohemia and talks of the vision he had of Hermione in a dream when she tells him of how he will never again see his wife Paulina. At the conclusion, he is chased of by a bear.
Any discussion I could generate on this piece would be most helpful. So, what are your thoughts and feelings, ideas or visions of this monologue? If you too are studying this piece as part of your VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education; Victoria being a state in Australia) please feel free to share any ideas you my have on this monologue.
