The paper discusses how, in William Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale", the idea of time and time passing are key elements in the drama. The paper analyzes how time is constantly expressed in the play through direct methods such as the use of Time as the chorus at the beginning of Act IV and, more indirectly, in the development and situation of characters. The paper examines how the two characters most controlled by time are Leontes, King of Sicilia, and his beautiful and devoted queen, Hermione.
