There are a few inaccuracies in your summary of Cymbeline. Iachimo is Italian, not French. The King's sons were not both 3 years old when kidnapped; one was 3 and one was a younger infant. Plus, Posthumous is more than a "childhood friend" of Imogen . . . they were raised together, and he has an impecable, though perhaps somewhat undeserved, reputation. Read the text! <br> My professor is focusing our discussions on Imogen as a heroine who influences the action of the play, the theme of loss, and the theme of forgiveness. I think it's a great play.
