From the Paper:

"As Leontes makes his first appearance in Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tales," the reader is confronted by an aggressively insecure character. His conversation with the more relaxed Polixenes is illustrative of this. Polixenes, in his anxiety to leave, explains that he has overstayed his welcome; "Besides, I have stayed To tire you royalty, Polixenes" suggestion is clearly a polite one, a non-threatening exclamation of gratitude. However, in a representation of his competitive character, Leontes miscomprehends this as a challenge; "We are tougher, brother, Tha you can put us to it.""
